Lift Gate Support
Lift gate supports, also known as liftgate struts or liftgate shocks, are mechanical components that are used to support the weight of a liftgate or hatch on a vehicle. Liftgate lift supports are typically made of metal or plastic and are designed to attach to both the liftgate and the vehicle’s body.
The liftgate supports strut work by using gas pressure or a spring-loaded mechanism to help lift and hold the liftgate open. When the liftgate is opened, the liftgate lift support expand and push against the weight of the liftgate, creating a counterforce that helps to support the weight of the liftgate.
Over time, liftgate supports can become worn or damaged, which can cause the liftgate to become difficult to open or close, or to not stay open. If you notice any problems with your liftgate, such as it not staying open, it’s important to have the liftgate support struts checked and replaced if necessary, as they play a crucial role in the proper functioning of your vehicle’s liftgate.
