    I am trying to find the AC Delco or GM part number for the back glass lift supports, my suburban has a glass that lifts up and a tailgate that drops down. I ordered two Monroe struts from Amazon that said they fit my vehicle, but they were twice the size I needed. I think they fit one where the whole back lifts up without a drop down tailgate. Can anyone help me with the numbers so I can order the correct lifts.
    Thanks,
    Dixiechef

    I am assuming that it is a new body style not the old style. If so then how about these numbers, 15029087for the left side and 15029088 for the right side. Those are the number s for a 2000 model. The site I looked on only went back to 2000. Go to www.GMpartsclub.com , type in your vin and you should be able to find the correct part for your 99(if the above numbers are not correct) Also,
    They are vendors that support this site.

    Try rockauto.com. Find your vehicle and look until Body-Exterior, and then Lift Support.

    Well being a 99 suburban owner like you, finding replacement parts especailly for the interior is getting harder, many arent even made/available fr0m GM anymore. Start with an auto body, they might be able to help, or start checking craigslist or pull your part junkyards for the parts. You can also go to monroes actual website and find more stuff for your correct vehicle. Many people selling car parts on amazon or ebay dont seem to realize the a 99 suburban/tahoe is not the same body style as a 99 silverado.

    The Monroe website has the part numbers for the older Suburbans. Curiously, they list nothing for Chevrolet, but list them under the GMC Denali. However, when you look at the cross reference chart, it shows Chevrolet Suburban as an "also fits". Same thing occurs in the Pep Boys catalog (must have copied Monroe's information). I have a 93 Suburban with the framed glass and a rear window defroster. I had the Chevrolet dealership order a set from wherever, and they worked until the weather turned cold. Apparently the cold weather caused the gas inside the struts to compress, causing the struts to collapse periodically, with the appurtenant skull rapping. Have been using a ski pole as a support. Found what I think is the correct part number for my truck Monroe Gas Max Lift #901715. Picture shows the correct mounting and even the blade plugs for the rear window defroster. These have been on backorder at Amazon, but were shipped today. I will update this post when I can verify this is the correct fitment.

    Last time I needed one I went to the local camper sales and all they needed was the strut to match up with another the same length throw and poundage.

    Received the struts from Amazon, and installed them on my 93 Suburban last week. I have Amazon Prime, so the delivered cost was under $40 for the pair. Perfect fit with the correct connectors for the rear window defroster. Poundage is perfect. Lifts the rear window without slamming it open. Note: The glass on the 93 Suburban is enclosed in a frame, and is heavier than the frameless windows on subsequent models. The fact that this truck also has a rear window defroster compounded the problem. When I was ordering these, I had an ongoing message from Amazon that these struts would not fit my '93 Suburban. Since I had researched this issue, I knew this was incorrect, and ordered them anyway. Glad that I did.
