    Hi All,

    Looking for tips on what/where people have sourced replacement rear hatch struts for a 2+0 with stock heavy wing. Mine have sagged over the years an no longer hold up the hatch.

    Z1 Motorsports in the states sell aftermarket replacements, otherwise stock ones I think can be re-gassed

    I don't know about 2 seaters for sure, but the online parts finder lists the same part number for both 2 + 0 & 2 + 2 cars. Given that's the case, you should be able to use Monroe ML4585 max lift struts. It's what I have on my 2 + 2 with the stock wing. They're only about $30 each on ebay too.

    From memory, 2+0 struts are slightly shorter.
    However 2+2 struts will also fit.
