Default Replace my Hood Shocks

I almost got crushed the other day due to weak shocks. The darn hood is so heavy. Ordered Strong Arm from Amazon on Monday, got them yesterday. Work perfectly fine.

Actually, the A8's hood is very lightweight. Compare it to a steel hood on a 2008 Jeep Liberty. That thing seems like triple the weight of the A8's.

Ever see the hood on a 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix? You could park a Smart Car on it. I wonder how much that one weighed?
