    Does anybody know where I can get a pair of new hatch struts for my '72 K/5?. Someone has to be making these.

    Thanks

    I don't know if anyone makes those, but if you're not looking for the original parts then you might be able to use a couple of lift shocks.

    Yea, I thought about that, and I might even like those more, but it would be way easier to mount a set of the original style.

    Thanks '69, I'm the high bidder there. Before I got too nuts, I wanted to be sure some company out there isn't selling them for $39.95 or something like that.
