so i went to the nissan dealer today to get a new set of rear hatch struts/shocks. first my jaw hit the floor on the price of them and then i started scratching my head when they told me one was 175 and the other was 154:yikes::dunno:. needless to say i didnt get them because im sure i can find them WAY!!!!!!! cheaper somewhere else.

this is what nissan is doing to everyone >:anal:

Ya you can get some nice after market ones for 75 at the most online that will support your trunk with a heavy rear wing on it. Dealerships always charge way more for anything for whatever reason.

I know several people that have bought them from Jasonz-ya and have been very happy. He offer the struts in different levels as well. I have bought a couple of items from him with very good results.

I'm in the same boat. I'm leaning towards the z1 bars and was wondering if anyone had them. I've got the stock hatch.

Love my Z, not to happy with Nissan

so i went to the nissan dealer today to get a new set of rear hatch struts/shocks. first my jaw hit the floor on the price of them and then i started scratching my head when they told me one was 175 and the other was 154:yikes::dunno:. needless to say i didnt get them because im sure i can find them WAY!!!!!!! cheaper somewhere else.

What a crazy situation. Mine have gone bad & this will be the 3rd pair since I bought it in 2003. This time I got a great deal at AutoZone, BUT, when they got here I realized that I could not separate the ball from the ends. The Deal sells 1 end, but not the other. WTF! So thanks to your forums I'll be cutting the sockets loose & popping the new struts on.

The Z1 trunk struts are great.
Very decent price.
They also offer a heavier duty strut if you have a rear wing etc.(extra weight).
Don't worry about the quality from Z1.
I have several of their private label parts. All are as good or better than the
"name" products.Their HFC's are a great deal.Fit like a glove.Plenum spacer,why
pay north of 200 bucks when Z1 has them for about half...

I got a price of $68 a pair from Z1 Motorsports the other day. They are the stronger ones and they come with an 18 month warranty. Can't go wrong with those.

Yes, I agree that the price of shock absorbers is very high. I recently changed the shock absorbers on my Dodge pickup, I turned to my dealer, but the price of the shock absorbers there was higher than in other stores. I decided not to buy the original shock absorbers, I read a lot of reviews on the Internet about shock absorbers, for example, like this https://truckpowerup.com/best-shocks-for-dodge-ram-1500-4x4/ article. I could find shock absorbers at a good price. I recently installed a new shock absorbers and so far very pleased with them.
