Porsche Lift Supports

The struts on your Porsche help raise your car’s trunk and hood so you don’t have to bear the full weight on your own. They also help keep these parts raised so you can be hands-free to load, unload, or make repairs on the vehicle. If your lift supports start to fail for any reason, you can easily replace them. Lift Supports Depot stocks Porsche lift supports you can conveniently order online.

What Are Porsche Struts Used For?

Gas struts are found on doors that need to be propped open such as the hood, trunk, and even rooftop storage like the Yakima Rocketbox. They look like small hydraulic bars that sit on one or both sides of the doors they open. They not only make it easier to lift open these doors, but they also prevent them from closing, keeping you safe. Lift supports are found on the:

  • Hoods
  • Liftgates
  • Trunks
  • Roof rear glass
  • Rear areas

Causes Of Failing Lift Supports

Gas springs tend to lose output force over time due to various reasons such as the temperature surrounding the gas springs. For example, high temperatures may affect the permeability of the seal of your Porsche struts at a faster rate. On the other hand, low temperatures may cause the seal to harden faster, preventing the lift support from maintaining its gas charge.

Other aspects that affect the lifespan include vibration, the number of cycles, and the actual size of the support. It’s usually best to check your gas springs every once in a while to ensure they’re working properly. While most lift supports like Porsche lift supports typically last for many years without any issues, the longer you have them in your car and the more you use the struts, the more likely they are to fail at some point.
