i recently got my car painted and i went to go open my trunk and now it is really hard to open. It feels like it wieghs like 50 pounds!!!! What could be the problem? Could they have put the trunk shocks on wrong? It feels almost like they are on upside down cause the trunk is so hard to get open.

Well i just looked at my 04 and the hatch shocks should be black facing down and when you open the hatch the silver part inside should towards the top of the hatch. Man that would be messed if they were on upside down.

LOL

TS keep us posted and let us know who the idiots are who did this so we can avoid that place.

What kinda idiot grease monkey gets done with their work and closes a hatch then doesn't re-open to tell if they did it right?

And if they did re-open why would they give someones car back like that (obviously not in working order)? I'd be writing a letter....
