All I can say is that I transferred my Forum Strut Kit from my old QQ J11A to our new J11B and they fitted without problems. So in theory any J11 Kit should fit - Dave 😉

Den, take a look here what I posted on the Struts. Definitely this Kit is a worthwhile investment at minimal cost and the installation time now is around 10 mins, done it a couple of times before. All I can say is that the Russian Kit was from Urory.ru and they are excellent, but I do not know if they are still operating as there are so many now available. The Bonnet is very heavy especially for a Woman, but installed it is light work - Dave 😉

Den, then you should now have your problems solved hopefully. I do not like to keep mentioning this but the Stop / Start never seems to fail anymore with the Varta not like the older J11A with the New FIAMM Battery - Dave 🙂

The eBay page shows 2020 models in the compatibility checker

That's incredibly cheap for a pair.

EDIT

And these are even cheaper!

Äthers, there are now so many of these Bonnet Struts Kits available the ones I installed was from the Forum Bulk Buy from a Russian Supplier as previously mentioned, years ago. I installed ours on our J11A and then transferred them to our new 2019 J11B. At first they would not support the Bonnet as I believe the Bonnet is now heavier, but I remembered from previously that you should pump the Hyd. Struts a few times and then they worked. This is a worthwhile modification - Dave 😏

I don't know but DaveBerlin suggested above there's no difference. I never got round to fitting struts on mine since they were a lot more expensive previously.
