Your lift supports are the tubular arms that make it much easier to open your Ford vehicle's hood or trunk. They're usually clipped in or bolted on, and ideal for those times you need to keep your hood or trunk open for a long period of time – such as performing repairs, conducting an inspection, or loading up sporting gear, luggage, or groceries.
Lift supports depend on compression systems to operate right. For example, a gas-charged lift support pressurizes the gas inside a cylinder to store a charge of up to 1500 psi. Once the cylinder opens, the energy gets released and holds up the part related to the lift support.
Lift supports can eventually wear out, whether from excessive use or exposure to extreme temperatures. If you’re finding it harder to hold up your hood or hatch, that's a sure sign that you need to replace your lift support.
