Where can one buy those lifting struts - eg used for holding up the bonnet??
Agents are very expensive...

Midas sells the Gabriel ones. They can adjust the pressure to suite your needs.

Or goto the Bosch Diesel electric in Churhc str pretoria West. They can increase the pressure and refill them later

Chris,
They don't have the Jeep item listed.
You will need to take the sample.
I bought at Midas Midrand (John) a set for the tail gate window on my WJ Grand Cherokee about 18 months back.
Hope this help.

A problem I had with the spares guys are that they match more or less on length and never on pressures. My wife's Merc has a massive glass bootlid and the new ones I bought from the A zone nearly decapitated her when it unexpectatley closed on her neck. Since then I rather go to Diesel Electric, they start by measuring the existing one, then pump a new one to a higher pressure as required. On top they were nearly 50% cheaper than the spareshop

You can also try MacNaughtans, they can supply the correct length and pressure of the existing ones.

Andries,
I was told by Midas that they order the Safaries from Diesel Electric in PTA central.
One less middle man.
