    Aftermarket Hatch Lift Supports?

    Anyone know where to get aftermarket lift supports for our hatch?
    Hyundai refuses to replace mine under warranty because of my wing even though they were worn out way before I added it. I ordered some from Advanced auto (Strong Arm lift support) that were slightly longer but they were fucking impossible to install due to them being rated for 150lbs which seems to be roughly what we need.

    I have the original struts but aside from knowing they are 16.75" long, I cant find any info on the stock weight rating.
    Strong arm doesnt have the veloster turbo listed, and im tired of digging through racks of them..

    Im in and out of my hatch about 5x a day, so I need something with a limited lifetime warranty.

    OEM Part Markings:
    Left: 81771-2V010 142000 0560N 250/12 29A
    Right: 81771-2V010 142000 0560N 250/12 29A

    Ya that's it. Lol.

    Oh and FWIW this is a perfect example of a modification that should void warranty.

    Think about it. OEM hatch lifts are made to support XX lbs. you ad XX lbs for a picnic table size wing. You can't expect to have a failed shock replaced because you just added XX Lbs and altered oem design.

    If the shocks failed b4 wing install you should have replaced them before modifications.
    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is

    Im not going to start the mods/warranty war here, just note my dealer refused it regardless of factoring in that I use it a metric shit ton before and after the mod.

    I just want some new ones with a lifetime warranty

    If someone can weight the stock wing by itself I can give you the difference.. my guess is under 20 lbs..
