If this is how everyone else's works then so be it...better than what was there before@jurassic3k
What are the number markings on your struts.... This will tell what you installed/have...
I'll let Redline Tuning work this out with you.... perhaps it is a YOU issue..... 8-) and not that the struts are the wrong ones.... Can tell you though if it is a YOU issue you are the 1st.
To me your video shows no issue that I would be concerned about..... I see no bounce ....
From new, the Redline struts on my JLU raised the hood in a slower, almost lazy manner when compared to the struts on your Jeep.I installed mine yesterday....they seem to be a little too strong and forceful when opening. Not sure I like it. Kinda bounces the hood
All I can compare it to is my Kia Telluride factory struts:From new, the Redline struts on my JLU raised the hood in a slower, almost lazy manner when compared to the struts on your Jeep.
I do wonder if you were sent the higher force gas springs that are intended for the heavier hoods on the Mojaves and Rubicon 392s. See the yellow highlighted text in the product description.
If you determine that yours are the regular-strength struts, then perhaps there are manufacturing variances that explain the difference in performance between mine and yours.
Oh, ok....On my end when I look at the post I just see this......a play bar but No video feed.Worked on my end
Looks right to me. Didn’t struggle; didn’t launch the hood into low earth orbit.Oh, ok....On my end when I look at the post I just see this......a play bar but No video feed.
Well, if you all can see a video, then hopefully my struts are raising my hood at just the right speed and with the right amount of force, as Heimkehr says...."Nice and easy"
I had the opposite problem, ordered a kit for a "heavy" european hood and received the poor kit. My hood would not lift by itself and once fully opened would fall back down by itself.I installed mine yesterday....they seem to be a little too strong and forceful when opening. Not sure I like it. Kinda bounces the hood
Hello Jason,If this is how everyone else's works then so be it...better than what was there before
i love the CF sleeves. What part did you order and are they once size fits all?All this Redline Tuning Hood Lift Strut talk, got me thinking........ I installed the Redline Tuning on my JL on 7/26/19 .... almost 39,000 miles ago.
I know I open and close the hood on my JL at the very least twice a day.... (I open hood when hot engine JL is parked in the garage) ............. that's a lot of flawless, no effort for me, ups and downs.
Today, the struts perform just as well as they did on install day in 2019..
Anyway, all this talk of the Reline Tuning offering go my hungry so to speak.... SOooo, in the mail, on the way to me ..... is a set of Carbon Fiber Sleeves for my Redline's.... They deserve it.... 8-)
