Re: boot lifting struts

just a quick note if anyone is thinking of doing this,

recieved my bravo struts today and they fit perfectly! only one is required to lift the bonnet as they are so strong!!

Re: boot lifting struts

yes you'll need the ball joint screws as used in the bravo/a boot!
i bought an INXX kit that didnt work so i already had these screws.

yes i used 1 bravo boot lifter! brava ones are too long.

Re: boot lifting struts

does it lift the bonnet high enough to engage the bonnet stay?

Re: boot lifting struts

Re: boot lifting struts

you will need ball-end bolts to hold the strut in place. these are avaliable in an INXX kit or you may be able to purchase them somewhere else, ebay perhaps?
