these struts on my car were already f**ked up when i got it...

the old owner drilled a hole through it to put a pin in there to let them hold the hood :pwned:

so i need new ones...were at 2 nissan dealers over here, the one told me it cost me ridiculous 150USD for new ones from japan???:blink:

i think thats a bit too much lol, the other dealer said they were not available...

anybody know where i can get some cheap second hand or some interchangeable ones from other cars?

Monroe Part# ML4371

I got them from Malz and yep $52.50 each. Straight fit, job was done in about 10 mins by myself.

Big stick / something to hold weight of bonnet, 12mm to take the factory struts off, 13mm to put the new ones one (bolt size is different, but again, they're a direct fit, no stuffing around).

Nissan genuine ones can't be rebuilt for some reason, to do with their odd seal design or some shit.

I've been using them for over a year now, and no drama's, they feel exactly the same this afternoon as they did the day I installed them.

A bit better than the factory ones if you ask me...just lift the hood a couple of inches and it'll extend all the way up by itself. Likewise if you push it down halfway and let go, it doesn't slam onto the radiator support, it goes down gently.
