GTA Notchback Struts?

Was in an AutoZone this past weekend browsing, and was looking at the lift struts when I noticed an odd entry. There was an entry among the Firebirds listings for the 93-02 selections that was a one-year listing showing for 1989 that listed as for a Firebird trunk strut. I cross checked with the 82-92 numbers for the convertibles and this was a separate number. Anyone who lives near a large parts store might want to check for E95566...was wondering if this might be the elusive hatch struts for the AA8 Notchback cars?

Also noticed that some were packaged with "universal" screw-in stud ball mountings like the Notchbacks have, so that might be an option to look into as well...

Re: GTA Notchback Struts?

the Autozone website lists E95566 as "Fits Your Vehicle" for my (non-notchback)
'90 TA.

and I see that the Mighty Lift 95024 hatch lift supports I bought with a limited lifetime warranty in 2006 now only have a 1-year warranty.

https://contentinfo.autozonepro.com/...95566/image/8/ In my opinion it looks awfully small for a notchback hatch strut and that photo is from AutoZone's website maybe it's for a convertible?

Re: GTA Notchback Struts?

When im in Barrie tomorrow, I will check with Part Source to see if they can bring up a picture. The guys out in Alberta Canada are able to refurbish my lift struts, just have to get off my butt and ship them.

Maybe for the 1989 Convertibles?
