Hello,

Can't decide which one to buy:

1) STRONGARM 4535 (studs built in)
2) SACHS SG214021

*T&C 2004, w/power liftgate
**Will I be able to use my power liftgate without damaging the motor?

I'm not much help, because I think either one is fine.

As for the liftgate, you WILL need to have good lift supports in place to use the power feature. It's like a garage door opener; the motor gets the door started to move and gently pushes it up, but most of the pushing is done by the lift supports (or your garage door springs).

This winter I accidentally opened my liftgate with the power motor during a cold morning when the supports were weak. The door opened all the way, and as soon as the motor disengaged the hatch slammed shut by itself. Yeah, I think my lift supports are getting weak too. :ROFLMAO:
