RhinoPac - ProductsRhinoPac - WarrantyRhinoPac - About


  • Gas charged lift supports
  • Heavy gauge steel body
  • Patented temperature compensation module valve for consistent operation in extreme weather conditions
  • Self-cleaning piston assembly automatically opens to keep orifice clean of fluid contaminants
  • Rubber O-ring piston seal helps prevent fluid leakage around the piston
  • Unique patented multi-lobe seal – more tolerance for shaft imperfections, temperature extremes, vibration, and shaft contamination
  • Teflon back-up ring maximizes performance through improved oil and gas pressure sealing
  • Specially engineered upper bushings provide exact fit with piston rod and ensure longer service life
  • Hardened chromium plated piston rod – precision ground and polished for excellent corrosion resistance and leak-free sealing
  • User-friendly installation

By design, all gas charged lift supports start to fail over time. They are typically out of sight and out of mind until they no longer function the way they used to. Moreover, they may operate reasonably well one day and then not at all the next. We have the solution you need to open the vehicle's compartments. You can be assured that when you choose a gas-charged lift support by RhinoPac, you get the industry’s highest quality in terms of lasting performance, smooth operation, safety, and ease of installation. After assembly, each part is individually tested in four different positions for performance and reliability.

RhinoPac never relies on 'will-fit' substitutions that require lots of extra time to remove the old lift supports, rebuild the connectors, and then install new parts. The manufacturer insists on using hardware that is identical to the OEM design so that the job can be done more easily and much safer, with just a few simple hand tools. Priced affordably yet technologically superior RhinoPac lift supports are a great replacement option to ensure safe and reliable operation, again and again.

Previously an individual brand, RhinoPac® currently belongs to AMS Automotive and provides efficient and reliable solutions to the automotive market. RhinoPac is a leading manufacturer of high-quality clutch kits, flywheels, clutch slave cylinders, clutch master cylinders, and automotive lift supports that meet or exceed OE standards for better wear and strength. RhinoPac designs, engineers, and assembles its products in the United States so that customers can buy genuine, 'all-American' products and enjoy quality and reliability that is exceptional in every way.

Better Than OEM
I read the instructions well and noted this product was designed to go on my Cadillac CTS-V upside down from OEM. All of the connections had the perfect bends and it went on in seconds. Works perfectly and the shaft stays lubricated in the cylinder much better than the OEM strut.

CARDiD "Gets Ur Done" w/ (2) Orders
The RhinoPac StrongArm Hood Lift has been an excellent choice in both appearance, ease of installation, price/value and quality. I had just used this same brand on my Mercury Grand Marquis just a couple of months ago through the same outlet CARiD and since I had such a good experience with that order and product I decided to try it again since my Chrysler 300M Special needed the same thing - the Hood Lift Supports. They both really do the job of supporting the hood when I need to get access to the engine unhindered because they live up to their name "StrongArm"; also they were easy to install as the rep at CARiD had said: 'Just unsnap to remove the old worn out lifts/supports and snap in the new" which I did by myself; and the quality/appearance for such a value of the function for these lift supports at a very reasonable price were less than $50 more like $40 including shipping. At CARiD you can select from 3 to 4 different brands in different mfg.'s but I'm sure glad to have followed the rep.'s advice and selected the RhinoPac brand they have been the best bang for the buck on both cars.

Title Is Correct.
This fit my hood struts on a 2005 Toyota 4runner. Description should note that the bolts are included and you don't need to buy them separately.

Awesome Deal
Look around the auto parts around here and they all wanted more money for the same product that I found with the same quality but with a less expensive price. I would recommend this business is CARiD.

Saturn Aura Replacement Hood Lifter
Unfortunately the lifter I received had the wrong ball socket, therefore did not fit and I had to return for a refund. If the ball socket had been the proper size, the replacement would have taken less than five minutes to accomplish.
