Replacement Gas Shocks for Door

Postby User GDS » Wed Oct 22, 2014 9:19 am

The gas shock for the pilot's side door on my H failed and I'm looking for a replacement. It is the stock unit that came with the kit. It's a Stabilus Lift o Mat, does anyone have a part number or specification for this gas shock?

It's shorter than anything they keep in stock at the local NAPA.

Thanks,
GDS

Go to McMaster-Carr. They have any size you may need.

The gas springs in the kit come from AIrcraft Spruce, part number 05-01177: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/appages/05-01177.php.

If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.
