The boot strut on a Chrysler Concorde is a small pneumatic shock, that supports the weight of the boot lid while the boot is opened. Overtime the seals inside the strut will begin to leak. When this happens the strut will no longer be able to support the boot lid and it will fall closed if not supported. Replacing these struts is a simple process, that can improve the functionality of your boot.
