RE: REPOST: 88 5ksq trunk latch spring -- Does *anyone* know?

I am talking about the *latch* in the middle.  There is a little spring
inside the mechanism that is visible even without taking the thing apart.
You just need to look from the inside of the trunk at the top of the
latching mechanism.

The springs on the hinges are fine.  Thanks for at least writing, though.

There's an upgrade to gas struts.
I saw some info on http://www.sjmautotechnik.com.
Good luck,
