I have an 07'. It looks like the recall was for 06 specific models. Can anyone verify if it was for all B9's?

My 06' hatch strut was damaged by my 8 year old when he decided to use it, instead of the hatch handle, to close my door after taking in the groceries.:(

I know the part I need but was wondering if anyone has had any luck using a non-oem part. $90 from the dealer seems steep for one hatch strut. TIA if you have any info.

you know I bet if you removed it and went to an auto store they'd be able to match it up to something that would work.

Peaty,

Thanks for the recommendation but I tried that one already. No luck with Pep Boys, AutoZone, or O'Reily here in Colorado. Bummer.

Our 09 hatch shocks need help to get hatch all the way up over the last 5 months.
Seem too weak for the weight of the Tribeca hatch, OUTBACK SHOCKS LOOK THE SAME but that hatch is lighter.

Wow you found one.
Finding a Tribeca in a junk yard is like a needle in a hay stack.

I ended up finding my replacements at a local junk yard. Saved $200 than going through Subaru Parts Depts.
