Bought my trunk struts from aliexpress too. Just fitted them. One thing - has that bounce at the end of the Boot opening travel eased with use? It’s a little bit violent for my liking. There’s an image on the website that might imply they are adjustable (but I’m not sure as site is in Dutch!)
Good news the violent rising has eased over use the bad news is it has stopped auto opening now as the cheap compression spring has squashed too much ! I guess you buy cheap you buy twice.
I’ve had so many issues with Ali Express including refusal to refund defective parts I’ve deleted my account and go out of my way to tell people to avoid AE now !
