Boot strut replacement

Does anyone know how to replace the boot struts. I'm thinking of replacing the existing ones for slightly stronger so the boot pops open more fully. Have located a supplier thanks to previous thread debate.

Anyone done this or are there problems. Not big on struts myself and just interested if possible.

Re: Boot strut replacement

put some on the wife's 145 bonnet, the info they need IIRC is the weight of the boot lid (plus lights, cables etc) and how far it has to pop upAs they are fairly generic parts, I would imagine they would have an equivelant to the Alfa strut and go a beefier after that.
