Look what IÃ‚Â´ve done today!
How you made it ??
It's really useful, cause you don't need to put your finger in the gap between trunk and rear bumper
Wow, definitely would be interested in how you did that
ItÃ‚Â´s very easy.
I just buy two stronger gas spring.
The two oem have 280N/ piece.
But itÃ‚Â´s not finished.
The springs I bought have 600 N/ piece, because I was afraid of buying to weak springs.
But with 1200 N itÃ‚Â´s so hard to close the trunk again.
So I tried one OEM with 280 N and one with 600 N, but it didnÃ‚Â´t work well.
I took a little normal spring an screwed it on the bumper of the trunk.
The result is shown in the video.
Next week IÃ‚Â´ll buy new gas spring with 450 N per piece and hope it will be enough, so IÃ‚Â´ll leave away the normal spring.
Here is where I placed the normal spring
the OEM gas spring
and the 600 N spring
where did you get the springs from ?
yeah this would be very useful...great idea!!like dogdog said...where did you get the springs from and what type did you use??
damn i like it ) what if it could close itself .. from like a button on the remote or .. from inside the car .. ohhh yeah
dude thats one of the easiest mods i have seen but i didn't even think of it. good stuff thanks for the info. props
IÃ‚Â´m from Austria, so it wont help you if I tell you were the springs are from.
Just go, with the oem spring, to a shop that sell gas springs and tell them you want the same spring with 475 N.
That is all!
To make it close by it self may not so easy.
IÃ‚Â´ve looked around a long time and the cheapest way to do it is about 1600$.
For me itÃ‚Â´s not worth the money.
So I re-gassed my springs today to 500N each and it still doesn't come up by itself. Any development?
I'd be fine with just putting a spring on my car I just don't know where to even start looking for them
Are you running with the GTS spoiler? if so, I think you are going to need to increase the newtons on the gas struts mate as that spoiler adds a considerable weight to the trunk lid.
Hm, IÃ‚Â´ve use a little spring to push the trunk up the first way, but I thought it would work with two stronger gas springs.
If you have a spoiler, you must use stronger spirngs.
For example the EVO OEM springs has 380 N.
Hello neighbor I am from Slovenia and I would like to know in which shop you bought that springs in Austria.
I have EVO X.
Hi, can you put a picture of where do you put the normal spring? I can't see The picture in your post. Thank you very much
