    Uprated tailgate struts???

    If your fitting a spoiler you'll need them. Otherwise the tailgate can drop.

    I have an evo spoiler on mine and had to uprate the boot struts because the boot was a bugger to lift sometimes. Bought mine from LMF for around £25.00. Well worth doing.

    I ought to get round to doing that really. Guy who fitted my spoiler reckoned that 9 times out of ten the standard ones would hold out, but there is the possibility of them giving way. In any case it's pretty heavy on the standard ones and can come down with a hell of a bang if someone doesn't know about it.

    Out of interest, anyone know how much Vauxhall charge? Occasionally their prices can be ok. Think they supply em as part of a fitting kit?
