How NOT to do a Strut Lift!!

This video is actually 3 weeks old. I just found it and decided to upload it, but my friend did not do this to this car.

    Belltech lower/level/lift struts?

    I am thinking about getting the belltech struts but i have a 2000 Silverado and the website says its for '07 and up so it probably wouldnt work on my truck and if it will could i still use it after the truck has 2" spacers. i need 3" total of lift.


    Did you install a leveling kit. (torsion bar keys) you can get 3" from those. No, You cant use struts on the 00' Silverado (struts are made for the newer coilover type, 07-up) yours has torsion bars.

    I HAVE THIS PROBLEM I WHAT TO LIFT THE SPRING FROM THE STRUT IS IT POSSIBLE IS THERE LIKE CLIPS FOR IT TO HOLD UP THE STRUT SPRING I WANT TO LIFT IT AND LEAVE IT LIFT WITH THE CLIP BECAUSE I WANT TO PUT SOME RIMS ON MY CAR THAT WAY IT WONT HIT THE.


    Yes they make "lifts" for your springs. They're cheap too. Keep in mind. If you do not provide enough "lift", you'll still have clearance problems. Even if you have.

    Minor Jeep Lift. Springs, struts?

    Ok, I know very little about jeeps, jeeping and what have you. But i have a '99 Grand Cherokee and use it primarily to drive up forest service roads/jeep trails/un-maintained back roads so i can bike down the mountains, and shuttle back etc.


    A quick, cheap and pretty easy solution is the budget boost. This is just 2 inch pucks that go above or below your springs. Many suggest longer shocks, but you can run your stock shocks til they go.

    When I unlock my trunk ( 95 Honda Civic DX Sedan) , should the struts pop the trunk open a little?

    When I turn the key, I have to hold the key and lift the trunk, making this a two handed operation, not convieniant if you have an armload of groceries. The car probably has original struts. could just be worn out huh.


    Could be the lift struts are wearing out, BUT the Civic trunks just pop unlocked. and only open just enough for a finger to slide in/under to completely lift open. (they do not pop,- open.

    Can you repair a trunk strut/lift support?

    My friend drives a Geo Metro so you know he's on a small budget and we're looking to replace the things that hold up the hatchback but I'm wondering if we can fix them somehow instead of replacing them. I'm willing to spend some time on it,.


    You know what ghetto thing one can do, . use a vise grip and clamp on against the strut's shaft to hold it up. . If he does not have a vise grip then try a like 4 binder clips(2 on each strut) to.

    My trunk won't stay open, how do I fix this?

    About a month ago, the trunk on my car started closing after i pulled it open. I think it has something to do with the metal bars holding it up, but i could be wrong. Any idea how to fix it.


    Change the lift struts(metal bars).
