I just went through an ordeal I wish to share with the group.
Bought a 90' DL Wagon a few weeks ago, pretty fair overall, but as probably many of us have experienced, the back door would not stay up. Well this ride is going (now gone) to my daughter who is mom to 2 of my grandkids, and there is NO WAY I want that guillotine around my grand kids.
So, we went about looking for replacements. Easy, right?
Well I went to Autozone (please go easy on me for that) and sure enough they sell those things and even showed a part for this car. Once it arrived, it was clearly not the correct part. As I looked around online I saw this was a problem not unique to Autozone. It appears many of the parts search engine / databases have this wrong.
The part we received had a hole + bracket on one end (the top end) - which is correct, but it had a receptacle for a ball on the bottom end, which on this vehicle was incorrect. The correct part for our vehicle should have a hole + bracket on both ends of the Lift Support.
In the end we found the correct part here:
This website shows a different part for left and right, the link above is for the left, but honestly I call BS on that and when the parts arrive I am guessing they are identical.
I will try to get pics and update here.
Thank you to all who contribute here, I am looking forward to getting back into these rides.
