    For one reason or another, my shocks under the good are beginning to feel stiff while closing the hood..any suggestions other than replacing the struts?

    Hmm, grease them up. Fully extend and add some grease to the shaft. Open and close a few times to get it worked in.

    Yes, greasing the shaft always helps...


    Sorry I couldn't help myself.:p
