Question Hood Struts Noise...

Who else gets a groan from their hood struts when opening? Mine does it just after the secondary release and just moving it up from the bottom.

This is nothing major, I just don't want to hear this noise on a half million dollar car.

The LS is suppose to be quiet including the hood struts. This is unacceptable and it seems like its time for new hood struts.

I also get a bit of a grown from the steering as it tilts and telescopes when I get in to drive after it has set in the hot sun for hours.

This is also nothing major, I just don't want to hear this noise on a half million dollar car.
