I just bought these for my 350z and they worked great. see my how to video on vimeo on troubleshooting as well. I first put the brackets on upside down and then Spencer at Z1 helped me out. Also he recommended tightening my hatch latch which I explain in the video. http://vimeo.com/28128948
Awesome product! Easy to install and way better than oem. If your shocks/struts are shot and you have a factory installed spoiler, go with the HPs. Note: A little muscle power is needed when closing hatch. Thanks Z1!
I received the MHP struts for my wife's 2006 350Z since it had no spoiler and these are definitely stronger struts but by no means are they too strong. Very happy with the product and also with the response time it took for delivery. Installation was very simple only taking between 5/10 minutes. Took me longer to gather my tools than doing the job.
Super easy to install and so far seems to be a great product. Once lifted manually about 4 inches, the new struts take over and lift the hatch for you. One problem I experienced was that my oem screws for the oem ball joint at the top were really IN THERE. I would recommend hitting them with some penetrating oil before trying to remove them. Great product z1!!!
Very satisfied with these. Apparently the stock struts are terrible since I see so many people buying these. These z1 struts are the answer you're looking for... when you install them, make sure you GENTLY set your hatch down to test them for proper placement first... if the hatch won't shut easily, it is because you have the brackets upside down. Just flip them and you're all set! I made that mistake and made a 5 minutes job a 30 minutes job. They are simple to install when done properly though! Get them!
Shanna's video made the installation process really easy since I'm a visual learner. The HP pressure is solid for a 350z without a spoiler like my 07'. I can see the HP pressure level being harder for someone who is on the smaller side to push down and it's definitely stiffer than the stock. I'm 5'10 170 lbs and this stiffness was fine for me but I definitely feel it. Someone on the shorter side might have trouble getting leverage when closing the hatch and I'd recommend the lowest pressure struts for them. 5/5 for now and will update review later in 2017 on how they hold up.
