Great job, but I did notice how yours goes up and comes to a sudden abrubt stop.. Mine slows down as it ends its travel... Is this due to the modded mod springs you added.? Hope it doesn't put unnecessary stress on the strut nipples.. <Yep I went there>Quick vid

Are these the ones you bought? Did they work ok ?Looking to fit these too.. Out of stock again...
Will do this when back in stock....
I found these instead. Not as cheap but not far off. I have compared the specs to the one listed above by WhiteCupra290 and they match. Although they list the length as being 515mm.. Hope this is a typo. As the OEM P/N's and model number are the same. Also it's title says bonnet and tailgate...
So fingers crossed they do the job...
Thanks to all for the info... Great little mod.....
Update : update : Just measured the strut on mine and fully open it is exactly 515mm in length.... Feel a bit better now..
What spring did you use? ThanksI bought these and they did not fit. to long.
I bought these and they fitted but the boot would not spring open, untill i put a 50mm spring onto one of the gas struts.
I bought them ages ago, cannot remember where from.What spring did you use? Thanks
Hello, can someone with the same car as mine please let me know if the below is what I need?
Leon 1.4 FR 2014.
I think you will find that the Stabilus ones are what they call Variable pressure,when they are compressed there is massive force, but as it gets to the end of travel the pressure drops, so as you release the boot latch the force starts the movement and then as it gets to the top it is just enough to hold up the boot lidDaft question... whats special about the stabilus struts? I’ve noticed that the ones recommended for the 5door by Amazon/eBay and comments above are the 515nm... which is the same as the standard ones.... so why do the aftermarket ones open the boot, but the standard ones don’t?
I checked the ame with the Golf I have until my Cupra is delivered and that is the same... standard ones 520nm, aftermarket stabilus etc are all 520nm.. so why do aftermarket open the boot but not the standard??
I was thinking it’s the springs that some people have added, but not everyone has done that but it still works.. also, if it was just the springs, then I’d have expected someone to say save the money on the strut and just add a spring..
There probably is a really sensible and obvious answer.. lol
