Driver Side Hood Hinge Spring (GM1237104) by Replace®. When a vehicle is in a front end collision, the minor components must be evaluated for reuse as carefully as the major panels. For example, if faulty or damaged hood components are reused, a replacement hood may not appear or function properly. And if you've found the cost of new hood components at the dealer exorbitant, then look to Replace. Replace has quality replacement hood components that are identical to original equipment (OE) for much less than the OE price.

A worn or damaged hood latch support may not allow the hood to latch or align properly. Fatigued hood hinge springs or lift supports may no longer support the hood. And damaged hood moldings, panel inserts or cowl scoops will detract from the appearance of the hood. These and other hood components should be evaluated and replaced with new if necessary to perform a proper hood repair.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged hood component were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE hood component. Searching for a useable component from a scrap yard is a waste of time, because you may end up owning a component that's in even worse condition. And many cheap replacement components don't fit properly and aren't even made of the proper gauge metal.
Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement hood component from Replace. Replace offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you'd get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A Replace hood component will look and fit just like a hood component from the dealer, so your vehicle will look new again. Replace hood components are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they're manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A Replace hood component is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge steel.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A Replace hood component is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A Replace hood component will get you back on the road in a car or truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. Replace is so confident in the quality of its hood components that they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
When selecting the Replace® component that is right for your model from the Product Options list, you may be offered a choice of Good, Better or Best. Good may be a part manufactured by a different company than the one that made the original part, but because it's based on the same design, it will look and function identically to the OE part. Better may be a part made by a brand name manufacturer and Best may be a part made by the same manufacturer that made the original part. Some parts labeled Best bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent, non-profit organization that oversees a testing program to guarantee the quality of automotive parts. CAPA certified replacement parts meet the industry's toughest standards. But regardless of how the part is labeled, have confidence that whichever one you choose, it will appear and function to your satisfaction.
