Notchback hatch struts

I've got a good lead on where we may be able to get our notchback hatch lift supports repaired or reproduced.

I'll have all the info shortly.

Re: Notchback hatch struts

I don't own a notchback so i'm kind of curious what is special/different about the notchback hatch lift supports compared to the standard hatch supports?

My car was a notchback until I switched it out switched it out for a normal hatch. I still have the factory original struts that were on it and worked like brand new. I happen to have a set of factory original Trans Am struts laying around too. In the first picture the regular struts are on the bottom, and the notch struts on the top. Then in the second picture, the notch on the right and the regular on the left.

You can see the notchback struts are a little longer, have different connectors, and have no connectors for the defroster.
