Default Shorter rear hatch struts

Does anyone know any manufacturer's part numbers for replacing the stock rear struts on a '02' PT Limited? I have a rear spoiler which contacts the roof when the hatch is fully open.

Thank you,

Sup five-speed, go to your local parts store and just start going through the aftermarket struts they sale, you should be able to find some shorter than yours that will work.

Went out to my PT and looked at the struts. Seems to me, with not too much trouble, you should be able to move either end of the strut a couple of inches from the original spot thereby stopping the the hatch from going all the way up far enough to hit your spoiler. I may be wrong about that, but it's worth a try, or as James said, measure what you have and look for shorter ones. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
