    Trunk cylinders

    This is really stupid but for whatever really irritating. The trunk lid cylinders make a groaning noise when opening and closing the trunk. Do new ones make this same noise?

    They're pretty cheap, just replace them if you dont like the noise. I think I got my hood shocks for like 20 a piece at Autozone (if you;re talking about the shocks that is...)

    Not sure if groaning is really what you mean, but mine makes a weird moaning kind of noise. As far as I know, it's normal.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Yeah I may have used the wrong word, it's just a really wierd hum/moan but it's pretty noticeable.

    Thanks for the input guys.
