Hood Dampers Sokie Tech / Generic Ebay / PWJDM / Tein Dampers
Posted 07 May 2011 - 01:53 PM
I have a preference for dampers with auto lift at any height, although most are either auto at 50% or 70% and I would like to be able to close the hood automatically at halfway or so.
Thanks in advance!
Also, search is down so I apologize if this has already been discussed.

I would go with the brand name nrg ones, they are right in between those two price ranges!
If NRG wasnt there i'd go with the Sokie Tech, most of the time people are happy, but NRG opens it wider and has more of a reputation.

Now the SOS brand hood struts seem to have a better bracket that prevents the ball joint and bracket that attaches to your hood from moving and rubbing the side of the fenders as most of the hood struts will eventually do, so you might look into those...but I believe they are prices a bit on the higher side.
So in the end, buy the hood struts that look the best to you, fit your need in lift height, and lastly price.

After 7 months or so I noticed some rust dots around the surfaces where it connects to the post on the car. It makes me wonder if this would happen with a more expensive name brand one. The rust isn't bad, wipes off. But you know that somewhere water is getting as an inferior metal.
