Take a look at RecPro’s new gas strut sets! Gas struts are also known as gas pressure springs, gas dampers, and gas pressure dampers. Our gas struts are certainly able to compete with other popular brands on the market and can provide 40 lbs. of force for each strut. RecPro’s heavy-duty gas struts undergo rigorous testing in order to meet or exceed the OEM specifications for cross-functional tasks. Check a cross-reference guide to see if your needs are a fit for our gas struts.

When it comes to our RecPro gas struts, they are primarily designed for RV, automotive, and agricultural uses. They are designed with the intent of solving difficulties with the opening and closing of hatches and doors. Our gas struts can provide you with integrated damping as well as controlled, measured movement.

Our gas struts are not only comparable with the top brands in the market concerning quality and durability but are exceptionally straightforward to install as well. Speak with an automotive professional if you have questions or concerns regarding installation.

*ATTENTION – At RecPro, our gas struts are primarily sold in sets. We do this because it is recommended by manufacturers that both gas struts be replaced at the same time, when applicable. Replacing only one strut can potentially cause unnecessary additional wear and tear on the remaining strut. This additional wear and tear can eventually cause total failure in the future. Do not neglect safe work practices when replacing equipment on your vehicles outside*

Take note: You will need to compare the gas strut currently on the vehicle with the replacement gas strut. You will need to make sure that they are the same. Compare the two gas struts part numbers and ensure they are the same. If the two gas struts do not match up, do not use the replacement gas spring. Each gas strut is specifically built for a particular application and vehicle. It can be hazardous to use a gas strut that is not specifically intended for an application. Using the wrong gas strut can result in damage to the vehicle or injury.

It is highly recommended that you have another person assist you by holding open the liftgate, hood, trunk, or lid. If the application has two gas struts, one gas strut will not have enough force to hold it open. A second person assisting you can help make things easier and help you avoid injury or damage.

To remove the existing gas spring: While someone is holding open the application, use a flat-bladed screwdriver to gently lift the retaining clip around the top of the ball socket. You can then remove the gas strut off the ball stud. Repeat these same steps for the other end. Do not completely remove the clip from the socket, as doing so could cause it to become lost, cause injury, or cause damage. Only lift the clip enough for the socket to come off the ball stud.

The replacement gas strut may now be connected to the ball studs by applying light force to the ball socket. Do not use tools on the exposed black rod. Mount the gas strut in the same manner as the original: do not switch ends in mounting. Mount the rod end to the hood or trunk first. This will allow the tube to rotate into the correct position for mounting to the vehicle frame.
