LS Fabrication's "Gate Saver" or Tailgate Assist Shock/Strut – 1994-2004 Chevy S10 Truck adds a little bit of modern luxury to your truck. The "Gate Saver" is an easy install and addition to the tailgate of your 94-01 S10 or S15 truck.

The LS Fab Tailgate Assist for Chevy and GM trucks slows the tailgate opening action.  This allows your tailgate to open freely without slamming after unlatching.

You will now have a tailgate that opens like a brand new Chevy pickup! And the best part is the easy installation.

Our Tailgate Assist Shock/Strut kit includes:

  • ★ The dampener or Tailgate Shock Strut
  • ★ 2x balls studs
  • ★ Jam nut for an easy install.
  • ★ Easy to follow instructions for a quick installation!
  • ★ Works with tailgate cables on both sides of the tailgate

    Shipping took awhile to receive but overall great product. Had to make a few slight modifications as the instructions were not specific to my sonoma. Also the LS bracket with m8 bolt head pictured was not included in the order. Not sure if this is an add on. Thanks for the great part!

    Had to modify tailgate hinge point on my 2003 S10. A change must have been done after 2001. But no big deal. Operates and functions as expected. Thanks!

    Didn’t fit, had to make it fit with extra hardware. Instructions are worthless. It’s nice once installed.
