Does anyone have a good source for rear hatch lift support struts? 97 geo metro.
Which ones are better? I don't want junk.

Just looked at auto zones web site and they don't show a listing for the struts.
Never mind this reply, I found them.

Ok, I finished installing it without breaking anything, works great now. Really easy, thought it would be difficult. I did find though that it was easier to remove the little plastic clips holding the plastic panels by pushing in the center first then pulling out the entire clip. It was very difficult to pull the center out.
