Fitted them today, couldn't even compress the old ones when I took them off. I guess because of where they're attached you're right! Quite the leaver!

Plenty of people have been happy with http://www.sgs-engineering.com/gas-struts.

They seem to have cocked up my order - I don't think they could handle the extra complication of an order for a Golf and a Scirocco at the same time.

You also have to be careful which way round they've attached the connectors, as invariably they are the wrong way round (easily fixed as they unscrew).
Not anymore I have not long got this company to make a pair for sally and where made around the wrong way . A awful company to deal . Would not recommend this company to any one .
