Replacing gas struts can be expensive. Re-gassing is an economical alternative that extends the life of your existing struts, saving you money in the long run.

Choosing re-gassing over replacement is not only cost-effective but also environmentally responsible. It reduces waste by extending the life of your gas struts.

Gas struts can lose pressure over time, resulting in diminished performance. Here are some common signs that indicate it’s time for re-gassing:


  • Difficulty in Lifting: If you find it harder to open or close your vehicle’s liftgate or hood, your gas struts may need re-gassing.
  • Sagging or Drooping: Gas struts that are losing pressure may not hold your liftgate or hood in the open position, causing them to sag or droop.
  • Oil Leaks: Any visible oil leaks on the gas strut indicate a potential issue with the seal and pressure loss.
  • Slow Operation: Gas struts should operate smoothly and relatively quickly. If they open or close slowly, re-gassing may be necessary.

Our Re-Gassing Process

  1. Assessment: Our experienced technicians will inspect your gas struts to determine whether they are suitable for re-gassing. If they are damaged beyond repair, we will advise you on replacement options.

  2. Re-Gassing: If re-gassing is possible, we will carefully remove the gas struts from your vehicle. We will then recharge them with the appropriate gas to restore their pressure to factory specifications.

  3. Reinstallation: Once your gas struts are re-gassed and pass our quality checks, we will reinstall them in your vehicle, ensuring they function as good as new.
