Where do you guys with dutch doors get your gas springs for the rear gate.

And what's with the wire hooked to them, door ajar wiring?

Rock auto has them for $14 with out the wire ,GM Monster parts online wan't $40 each for the OEM ones, I assume with the wire thingy :shrug:

If you have a local Autozone they carry gas shocks for hoods and hatches right on the shelf. Not sure if they are any better priced. I have yet to see a dutch door assembly, but is the wire thingy by chance part of the rear defroster? :shrug:
YES!!! (I'm doing my good guess dance!) :banana: :D

I'll have to go take a good look at it today when the rain slows a bit.
Having the defrost wiring on the lift supports just seems kind of an odd ball way to do it.
Man your always talking about rain.......your starting to depress me. :lol:

Did you get them changed yet? :lol:
