They finally bit the dust???

You can probably get new ones at a junkyard for short money.

thats kinda what i was thinking, but its just kinda weird because before they worked perfectly, and now, they dont work with a crap, you lift it up and then it immediately falls down and pretty fast.. but who knows, I guess Ill look into getting some new ones.

You think it had anything to do w/ whether or not they baked the car when they cured your paint??? Maybe the heat screwed w/ the gas in the struts.

Just another thought...

That's a very good point. High heat could have caused the seals within the lifts to blow due to the pressure.
