    The 16” cable work well on my ‘79 GMC truck. I did have to open up the slot about 0.010” of an inch to fit on the stud of the tailgate. I also used loctite on the threads as well as staked the end so it doesn’t loosen up. I would buy again.

    From Canada:
    The tailgate supports appear to be of the highest quality and craftsmanship and were a perfect fit! I am very happy with the product and they were easy to install with the help of the installation video.. email communication was fast and friendly and I couldn’t ask for a better experience! I did have to pay a little bit of import Duty and tax to bring them to Canada but that is to be expected and I may lose a couple points for being non-original but I don’t care because I combined them with a set of Delrin non-removable tailgate bushings so no one can steal my tailgate and things should be all quiet back there now!.. thanks LS Fab!😃
