Hey guys I bought a set of new hood lift supports for my 86LX to find out that the drivers side lift is sort of "Special".

It has contacts and the voltage for the hood lamp travels through the shock, I tried to make the other aftermarket lift work with the old other lift parts to no avail now I have no light on my engine bay :(

Anyone knows how to get it to work with normal lifts or where can I buy the correct one?

Thanks!

Konrad.

You might be able to modify the hood to be like the Gen2 hoods. Just a little tab on the edge of the engine bay and a plate on the hood that breaks contact when you open it to turn the light on. You might want to just pull it from a junkyard and see if you can get it to work.
