Works as advertised. Easy installation after watching the A1-Auto youtube video. Used the wife instead of a broom handle... should have used a broom handle. Will buy from A1-Auto again...

The lift-gate on our yukon xl was not opening as it should...we would have to hold it open, hurry and load items into yukon, & let the lift-gate down by hand or it would slam shut - potentially hurting someone if they werent prepared. We got online and looked up potential solutions and the lift supports appeared to be the problem. Weve ordered from 1A Auto before so we looked up the part...1A Auto had an EXACT match, it was shipped to our door within 2-3 days, & the supports we purchased fixed the problem immediately. 1A Auto has helped us fix problems from time to time at a fraction of the cost as compared to going to the dealer. We trust 1A Auto & will purchase from them again in the future if necessary. Buy with confidence...1A Auto will get you up and going again...and probably save you time & money. Thanks

Lift Supports
They arrived quickly and in good condition. A1 had a video for me to familiarize myself with replacing them, and they fit perfectly. Very happy :)

Received in a timely manner
The part is correct and I received them in a timely manner, however the arms are so tight that I have to assist the rear door down so that it will close otherwise it will just go back up. Also 1 of the arms has popped off twice so far and had to be put back on. Its at the point now that if it comes off again I dont think it will go back on and stay on but will see. Also hoping that the arms will loosen up a bit so that it will work properly without my having to help it close.

2013 Tahoe Lift Support Arms
I dont think, these support arms are universal. They fit my Tahoe but didnt fit well. I really had to force them on. I know I probably shouldnt have but I had already thrown away the bad ones so I mean its on but closing the rear door is so hard.
