How Long Does a Trunk Lift Support Shocks Last?

For most people, traveling is something that they do on a regular basis. There are a variety of things that are on a car that can help a person out when traveling. The trunk lift support shocks help to hold the trunk up when you are trying to get bags out. This will allow you to avoid having to hold up the trunk and can help you to get all of the things out of the trunk without having to make a lot of trips. Just like any other part on a vehicle, eventually, the trunk lift support shocks will eventually wear out.

Due to their durable construction, these lift supports are designed to last as long as the vehicle does. Over time, the lift supports may begin to show signs of wear due to the regular use that they get. Usually, these shocks will be filled with gas, which provides the tension that is needed when trying to hold up the trunk. In some instances, the gas can leak out over time, which will render the lift support unusable. Neglecting to get to the issues with your trunk lift supports can lead to you not being able to keep your trunk up when needed.

Punctures or leaks are quite common with these trunk supports, which is why you will have to keep an eye out for issues. For the most part, you will not be able to repair these lift supports. The best way to fix any of the issues that you face with your trunk lift supports is by getting them completely replaced. When it does come time to replace a trunk support, it is best to replace them in pairs in order to reduce any issues down the road.

Here are some of the things that you may notice when it is time to replace your trunk lift support shocks:

  • The trunk lid remains open
  • The trunk is very hard to open
  • During cold weather, the hood will not stay up for long periods of time

Getting the trunk lift support shocks on your car replaced quickly will reduce the amount of issues that you may encounter. Have a certified mechanic replace the trunk lift support shocks to eliminate any further problems with your vehicle.

I've used Your Mechanic many times but this was my first time Daniel repaired my car. Daniel was prompt, explained clearly everything I needed to know about shock absorber replacement and did a fantastic job in less time recommended replacing shocks and hood and lift back struts. I would definitely use him to service my car in the future.

Repair on car was done quickly and efficiently. I’m grateful to have access to such expertise and having this service completed at my home is wonderful. ( the hatch on my Kia Sorento was not staying open). Thank you so much Al for solving this problem ( I won’t bump my head anymore because of the hatch coming down!)
