So back to my questions......
Two struts (one per hinge) seem better than one in handling a strong wind. But maybe what gets bent out of shape is located beyond of the area of the strut(s).
- Does the gas strut prevent the trunk lid from over-extending during a strong wind?
- Do you mount one strut, or one for each hinge for a total of 2?
Knowing me, I would be walking to the car, opening the trunk lid from a distance, then realizing the windy conditions after it is too late.
