Hey, guys.

Anyone know of an alternative lifting mechanism to put in place of those criss-cross bars on the 2000 Bonnevilles? Any sort of incline lets gravity defeat those weak bars and the trunk won't stay vertical unless it's sitting level. Plus, I just mounted an amp for the subs I got (6" 600w subs that fit nicely with a 6x9 to 6" adapter seated down in the old factory sub ports on the back deck :) ) on the underside of the back deck that is just a hair too big for those bars to sit in the normal position when the trunk closes. They press up against the side of the amp and bend ever so slightly when the trunk is closed all the way down. :sad: Is there a hydraulic lift alternative to those bars that can be attached to the back of the hinge or something?

Have you tried just adjusting the bars?

what NOS4BLOOD70 said....I adjusted mine all the way (stiff) and it was way to harsh it would open and slam up...I adjusted it back some and now it works to my liking...you can definitely get it to open more stiff/strongly if you want it too.
