Kevin...kit worked fine...for a time and then went back to barely opening. Ordered another kit and added it to the passenger side but had to make a "handed" mounting bracket from angle. Worked fine for awhile and then back to barely opening. May have to play with tension mounting positions for hydraulics or get new hydraulic struts. I do have extra weight of factory luggage rack. I did replace the rear stock torsion bars for the trunk lid at the same time.

Sorry for delay in getting back. Have been in and out of hospitals, still having some issues, think I now know every surgeon in Dayton, Ohio. One thing after another...

Hope this answers your questions.

The "lift kit" he is referring to is made in Germany for their version of the Opal GT / Sky.

I ordered two and installed one in our Sky and the other one in my Solstice. A slight modification is necessary to make it fit the Sol but it works very well.

Could be part of the aging process! (S'posed to be funny)

...and I am well aware of the aftermath of all the stress and strain I have put my body thru'. When people tell you "getting old sucks"...believe them, because it does!

Another doc appointment tomorrow am...when will it end?!

I love the German lift strut mod... 10 minute install with no modifications on my 2008 GXP. Adjustable tension which easily lifts the deck with my empty Kappasphere luggage rack installed.
