Default Looking for gas hood strut users!!

I just got done fabbing up some brackets to mount gas shocks on my ride.

What I need is the model number of the gas shock, so I can cross reference it to see how much pressure I need.

A seller on E-Bay has a slew of different lengths and pressures, just have to know what one to get. Thanks

This info is exactly what I need. I did a search on the part number, and it is about 42.5#.

The seller on E-bay has some the length I need and 45#, I'm sure it is close enough.


I fabbed them from the "HOW TO" section on this site, by measuring from hard points in the picture, with some 2.0 m.m. stainless. I had to do a little tweaking and trimming before I mounted them. I'll just have to give them a quick black paint job.

I'm just waiting for my ball studs to arrive, and order up the shocks, and I should be good to go

$30 well spent!

Thanks again for the info
