    there are two bars in my trunk that hold it open

    those bars are the only things stopping me from fitting a 15 in my trunk and being able to put it sub back port back,, if i cut those off is there anything i can use to hold the trunk open?

    Yes, there are piston rod kits sold to hold the trunk open to replace the torsion bars.

    use your imagination, and use those piston things. Lol I know this one dude who had the same problem, and got a crobar to wedge it off, but all the force that he used on that bar the trunk lid slammed on his head and layed him the **** out. It was hilarious, I couldnt stop laughing as he layed on the ground then I helped him up.



    EVERYONE has common sense, but its the stupid ones who dont follow it.

    And don't cut em out, they're spring loaded, so you can carefully pry them out and put em back in if/when you sell the car.

    Either mount up a single HD piston on one side or use a piece of 1x2 like I do...
