New Gas Lift Springs

I recently replaced all of the gas springs on my 2001 210: V-drive hatch covers, engine cover, observer seat back, ski locker and glove box.

I found a great source with great prices I thought I would pass on:

HERE IS THE LINK

All of mine were $15 each which is WAY cheaper than I could find locally or online anywhere else. Shipping was about $12 and they were here in a week. No complaints. Hope this helps someone.

Good find!

I did a lot of Internet searching and probably did not find your source because they call them "Struts" which I know some folks call them, but they are actually springs in which they expand on their own when released as opposed to dampening bounce in both directions.

They need to find a new word for these buggers that everyone will know. They are not gas shocks or struts, they are springs.

Lift springs
Gas springs
Gas lift springs

Both sites should be posted in the FAQ HERE listed as "Where do I find replacement gas shock/strut/springs for my glove box/observer seat/engine compartment/V-Drive hatches?

Auto zone carries some that will work just look at the measurements from ball clip to ball clip. and the PSI you need $19.00 to 23$ but no shipping and if it doesnt fit take it back.
