So I have ordered a set as the boot is starting to grumble at certain heights to stay up.  I have ordered Z1 - delivery from the UK distributor.  It seems even I should be able to swap them out.

I have read good things about these in the states.  I have gone for the higher pressure type for heavier wings.  The Nismo V1 Wing is fairly heavy,  I will do a write up about the fitting when they arrive.  I still have the weight in the boot, but I plan to keep that stock.

Let us know how it works out Les.  Mine have been grumbling in the cold weather.

 

It's not a problem as such, but it would be nicer if they worked properly.

The original ones on my new 2018 Nismo started leaking within the first 2 months.

Extremely poor quality,

Very straight forward to fit, should only take 10min or so

Hi Mate,

 

You may need the Boot Springs replaced.  Here is the thread.  They don't come cheap though and we of course as we have the heavy wing have to use a different one to the standard spring.

What I am finding is the boot will sit half open - which is ok for drying the car off, but it doesn't lift up fully without help - I will let you know how the struts go.  The springs did make a difference and stopped a rattle I started to have from the trunk.
