Hello everyone, got a quick question. I removed the trunk spring / prop rods a long time ago because of the Fiberglas trunk lid I installed. I now have a rust free replacement and I don't remember how these are installed. Can someone help me out ? Send me a picture? Thanks....

is that on the lightest setting?would moving it up give more lifting power?

That must be on the stiffest setting because it shoots up, if I use the release in the glovebox. It will raise with 3 to 4 pounds sitting on the lid. Such as my tackle box...
