C4 Hood unbelievably heavy

by Jon Sr
(Long Island, NY)

As with many other c4 owners, my 1984 c4 hood is almost too heavy to lift. New struts did not help at all. I am wondering if new hinges could help, albeit alignment of the hood would be a nightmare and a half; or if some sort of bushing or spring assist is already available. It just cannot be that some people have no problem at all, maybe some original owners may help by indicating if these problems existed from the get go.
