TIPS on selecting a replacement Nitrogen Gas filled Strut, Shock, Spring, Prop, Lift

 

(They have many names, but basically all do the same thing)

When selecting a replacement unit it is not as hard as manufactures / retailers want to make it seem!  Many manufactures construct their products in various odd lengths and pressures more over they tend to mask the helpful information you need with a part number that makes no sense unless you have access to their master list, it is almost impossible for the average person to tell the difference between 20LB opposed to 22LB output pressure the same is true when looking at a 17 inch long verses a 17.04 inch long strut. A very good practice when selecting a replacement unit is to remove your old strut (s) and measure the distance between the mounts, both open and closed to see how your new replacement will fit, you may even find that a bit longer (or shorter) strut would really workout better for your needs. IN most applications there is allocated space for a number of different length units … for example your truck topper rear door, if you select a unit that is ½ inch or so shorter / longer chances are you will not even tell the difference. If all else fails you can always move one of the mounting studs to accommodate your replacement unit if you can not find anything close enough to fit the existing mounts. When relocating a mounting point for an existing set-up always try to move the fixed mount (not the mount on the door / lid ect.) this will keep the output pressure needed the same as it was previously.

Why does it take two - 40lb units to hold up your topper door as it only weighs 20 pounds? There is a formula to get this answer, but if you are not a mathematician a simple way to think of it is like a teeter totter, the closer to the hinged point the strut end is mounted the more output pressure it will take to hold the door open. You can also use this to “fine tune” the strut to your application IE; you added struts to your tool box and the lid stays up … but just … moving the mounting stud a bit  farther from the hinged point will make all the difference you need.

When making your selection for a new replacement strut I suggest a bit higher output force, for instance if your OEM strut is 27LB and you have to make a choice between 25 or 30 LB take the 30lb … as ALL struts loose pressure over time! Choosing the 30lb output will give you a bit longer life out of your new strut (as the gas leaks out you are now down to the pressure of your old units when they were new). When installing always mount your struts with the rod (skinny) end pointing down, which means the position the strut is in most of the time. The reason for this is Gas springs / struts / Shocks contain a bit of oil, installing with the rod end down keeps the oil on top of the piston seals, which keeps them lubricated to help prevent gas from leaking.

We have tried to set-up this site to make it as easy as possible to find just the replacement you need, if you have your old unit with a name and or part number IE: SUSPA C16-xxxxxSPD-xxxx-xxSpringlift SL-xx-xx just enter any (C16 … SPD … SL) or all of it into our STORE SEARCH (the store search is located in the upper left) as this will get you closer to what you are looking for. If you do not have a part number / name or you are designing your own application feel free to e-mail us with any questions.

We hope this helps when looking for a replacement unit for your application. We are here via e-mail or phone to answer any questions we can, but PLEASE be aware we do not get to work eBay full time and it can sometimes be a day or so to get your answer. Although we do try and ship daily Monday thru Friday … if we are not available we have a 3rd party shipping our items to get them to you as quickly as possible. If you need overnight or second day delivery please let us know and we will make every effort to accommodate your request. We mainly ship USPS or FedEx, and always send the tracking number via  e-mail when your item is sent.
