    30 is pretty good. I looked some up for one of my customers...I wanna say they were either 50 or 100. Might have been 100 for a pair...I forget. Kinda absurd for hood/trunk strut if you ask me.

    How often do you guys find them going bad? Just curious...

    mine went bad after a couple years. Also they are far from hood/truck struts. They compression ratio is alot different. I know I worked for a auto parts place and tried many of them.

    I had one break on a Super Mini and removed the other. After a short time me and my crew actually prefered not having the dampners on at all.
