LS Fab Tailgate Saver - 88-98 GM Truck

LS Fabrication’s 1988-1998 Chevy Truck “Gate Saver” or Tailgate Assist Shock/Strut–  adds a little bit of modern luxury to your OBS Chevy truck. The “Gate Saver” is an easy install and addition to the tailgate of your 88-98 Chevy truck.

Trucks with tailgate straps (not cables) will require removing the driver side strap to make room for the strut. 

The LS Fab Gate Saver for Chevy trucks slows the tailgate opening action allowing your tailgate to open freely without slamming after unlatching.

You will now have a tailgate that opens like a brand new Chevy pickup!

Our Gate Saver kit includes:

  • ★ The dampener
  • ★ 2x balls studs
  • ★ Jam nut for an easy install.

The Tailgate Saver – 1988-1998 GMC Chevy Truck will work with both tailgate straps and cables but in the case of tailgate straps require the removal of the driver side tailgate strap is required to install. Please use your discretion on the weight capabilities with a single tailgate strap.

Good Product

Overpriced shipping

Thanks for the review! Unfortunately it is difficult to ship anything for less than $10 these days. Being we don't make that much on this part to absorb shipping cost, we do have to charge. Just what we have to do in order to sell this item, and not break even.
