Lift supports are energy storage devices that produce energy by compressing gas inside a cylinder, this is specifically for the gas-charged ones.
When closed, the energy is stored. When opened the energy is released to raise a hatch, hood or trunk, holding them openly in a safe position.
Gas charged lift supports are sometimes mistaken as shock absorbers, which instead absorb energy to control movement.
Lift supports usually accumulates a gas charge of 1,500 psi, therefore, they cannot possibly be compressed by hand.
Lift supports fail over time. They are not taken into consideration since they become out of sight until they can no longer function effectively.
Noteworthy also is the fact that, they may work perfectly well one day and then not at all the other day.
Replacement should expected if the vehicle has been of use for five years or longer. Lift Support usage can be divided into two parts: Automotive specific and Universal applications.
