Rear trunk struts

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

I replaced the front ones a few years ago. It has been a while, so I don't remember all the details.

They are made by Stabilus, which mades struts for lots of vehicles. I think I also found a least one other company that makes them. I remember going to Pep Boys and looking in the catalog. The Boxster was listed but of course it was not in stock on the rack, because it is not as common as a Honda. The counter guy looked in the computer to see if it could be ordered and for a price. It could be ordered, but the price was no deal. Cheapest place turned out to be ebay, so that is where I bought mine.

The top is the original Porsche branked strut. The bottom is from ebay.

Just ordered some of there from AutoHausAZ (no affilication, I just found them and was happy!) The part number is 2711GI with this description "Shock/Strut, Decklid; Rear Decklid Left/Right" for $18 each. I was never able to get a Porsche part number for the parts.

These seem like a pretty common part that I would not have to source a Porsche part for $26 a pop.

Does anyone know if there is an alternative to OEM?
