Rear engine lid shock parts identification help please

Hey guys thanks as usual for helping me with all my questions. My car is not here so I cant have a look at it and I sold all the old parts off it to cut weight. Anyway, I will now have a nice engine I would like to show at various functions. My question is this.

When I go to Pelican they show several pins for the rear decklid shock. Im wondering if somebody can help me identify exactly which ones I need. My car is a 82911sc with stock rear deck lid hinges and a fiberglass ducktail. Here are the parts they are showing.

Which clips do I use? Also on the diagram I thought I saw a rubber washer/grommet that is used to keep the lid hinges from rattling, which I have experienced before. Anybody know about that? I cant find the diagram right now.

There's some flexibility here, pick one you like.
The clip in the fist pic is for pins that have a hole in them.
My PO used regular nuts and bolts hardware which I converted to the pin and clip in your 2nd & 3rd photos.

I don't recall a grommet, rather there are 2 cylindrical 'bumpers/buffers' that are threaded one one end - these are screwed into the deck lid - they land on the body and are adjustable.

Your 82 SC would have used the pin & clip as shown in your 3rd, and 4th, pictures. Since you are using a ducktail you may find a single support does not hold your lid up.

Wouldn't the fiberglass ducktail be lighter then a stock unit?

The f/g duck is dead lighter. I don’t understand that comment either. One strut should be plenty to hold up a glass tail.

It still maybe better to run two shocks on an all fiberglass tail so that it's supported evenly.

I just replaced the rear deck lid shocks on my ‘86, it used the hardware in pics 3 & 4. I have a full fiberglass deck lid/3.8RS wing. I tried just 1 shock, it held up the deck but when I pulled it back closed it was definitely pulling down unevenly and I didn’t want to damage the fiberglass so I installed the second one. My 3.8RS entire assembly is definitely lighter than the OE steel deck lid was.

Consider a mechanical (i.e. non gas charged) strut as an option. No pre-load, no additional hardware...

Our 89 Turbo had two rear decklid shocks.

My 87 Carrera without a Carrera tail came with a single shock but mountings for shocks on both sides. I've added the second shock since they seem to last much longer.

I ended up with 2 all OEM parts. Thanks guys for the help. Will start with only one since its a F-glass duck tail and see if that works good. If not will add the other one on.
