That wouldn't be advisable for as rich as your car is running. You could like, pass out. Or something.

Rich or not, you'll still suck fumes in through the rear window. FWIW, a new set of Monroes will stay up on the highway (not "locked" though).

Why would you want to do that? Besides, your brake lights won't work with the window left open.

got those Monroes
holy moly, I didn't realize how wasted my old struts were until I put these in.
a single one held the window up... I put in two obviously, but one of the originals cracked me in the skull when I disconnected it.

Be careful with the new struts on there. Keep a hand on the glass as it goes up. Otherwise, it may open so violently that the struts will pop right off the glass! Ask me how I know... Wink

yeah, it's mental.

The one thing I wish I had and I don't think I can get a new one without getting new tailgate glass: the little hook that holds the rear wiper

Don't buy the Monroe ones, I got those for my RMW and am very disappointed in them. The defroster never worked reliably since I got them and one started leaking a month later. A year later the other kept binding up.

Yeah, I've had a couple that I've had to take apart and sand the paint off so they had continuity for the defroster.

All the contacts where the parts are "stacked"... I think the end eyelet screwed off, and then the tab for the defrost, and then the body of the shock, all those contact points. Then the other end, same deal.
