I am shopping for mew gas lifts for the hatch on my '99, They finally gave up the ghost. Since I am in the trunk constantly, I am having to prop the hatch up with a long wooden stick :( I have done my due diligence looking online for the best pricing, but I see so many brands, and I really haven't a clue. I've never replaced this part on any car before. Any suggestions on a brand, or does it matter?

Thanks guys. No particular brand recommended? Everyone on line has them - I was just hoping someone could tell me if there is any difference in the brands available. Like most things for our cars, some things are expensive, and some others, not so much. I am willing to pay a little more if it is a better part and will make a big difference. Anyone? Bueller? :)

I think I got mine from ECS Tuning for my GTI. Super easy to replace too. You'll want an extra set of hands to hold up the hatch while you replace them, but mine were done in 5 minutes.
