Ordered mine sunday and got them on wednesday! I installed one side and it held up the hatch by itself! I couldn't get the damn 12mm screw off of the other side :/. Any potential downside to only having one installed?

We do not recommend leaving it in such condition, could lead to issues causing by causing the Hatch to flex.

I just got the HP struts in the mail today and they are amazing! Just wish I went through you rather then going through the website...maybe I would have got a few bucks off. I love it and I have already told people in 350zclubofflorida. Thanks guys for making a great product!

really fast shipping put the HP on my 03 with stock spoiler, now it takes almost two hands to close hatch and installed in only 10 min. I would get some one to hold the hatch and support it with something when changing these shocks. I was amazed how much weight my old struts supported even though it did not hold the hatch up. If you just use a stick and it slips the consequences could be very bad

Finally got around to installing these, should have done this a long time ago. I guess I needed a few bumps in the head to changed them. Thanks for a great product.

Bump for a great vendor and great product. I recently purchased a Z and the hatch struts were worn out. If it hadnt been for a seized mount on one side (I had to cut off the OEM strut to remove the mount) I would say this would have been a 20 minute job. Hatch now goes up on its own.

Would you recommend the UHP for a Nismo V2 wing?

I just installed these like 3 weeks ago and they are still working awesome. They are uhp so they require a lot of force but if you have a big spoiler your good to go with these. One of the best things ever. So nice to have a hatch that doesn't want to kill me no matter how cold or warm.

Based on the feedback I have recieved HP's are adequate for almost all wings, but we suggest UHP for cars with wings to ensure there are no issues. But the blue Z in the video is using HP.

If anybody was stuck between these and the ones strong arm makes, go with the z1's. I bought the strong arms and the fitment is poor, and as a result the hatch catches a little air which makes a ton of noise on the highway.
