2006 350Z Hatch lift struts

I've got a 2006 350z. I need help ordering replacement Hatch Lift struts.

I ordered twice from Amazon.com, but, both times I have managed to order the wrong struts...

I think it must be a 350z Model difference.

My model is very basic, 6-speed Manual Trans, cloth seats, no controls on the steering wheel, no Cruise Control.
It does have the Tire Pressure Sensor.

The Hatch is nothing special. No Spoiler or Cover over the Hatch glass.

Can someone please help me figure out which Lift strut to order? Thanks

They're all the same except for Nismo, which requires a heavier duty (higher pressure) one for the weight of the wing. (I have a set of those on my standard hatch and watch that chin when opening! Ha!)

OEM are the best as many of the aftermarket ones are made "close to the dimensions required and fit other cars". Try Courtesy parts or Z1 Motorsports

Mic's: Z33, SRL-311, SL55, Highlander-H / Gone: Z33 & Z34 Nismos, Z33-Rdstr, Z32, Z31 Shiro (R.I.P.), Q45, 6-S30s, SCCA D-Prod SRL311 and a bunch of other non-Nissans.

You might want to look into those on z1motorsports. They offer 3 diff strengths. For my Ď07, I chose the mid level as they were strong enough to hold the hatch up but not extremely hard to bring it down. Be aware that youíll still have to slightly lift the gate once itís unlatched. The gate will then lift on itís own. Good luck.
