RE: [DML] door struts



Farrar, I have had one set of the Stabilus door struts since I brought them
back about 4 years due to mechanical failure. 
I now have designed and built new door struts that fullyed opened the doors
this morning at about 40 degrees and I have added a new damper to keep the
door from banging at the top as it gets hotter. I call them the new " Soft
lift" door struts. All struts are going to sag over time and new ones just
as well. How much depends on the torsion bar, the strut it's self and how
cold.

Going over my car's history I see that the door struts were replaced (by 
DMC) in the autumn of 2004 and again in July of 2006. They still sag 
badly when it's below 60F. Should I try a stronger strut, or should I 
get the torsion bars adjusted by a pro?
