Anchor Hatch Gas Strut?

Anyone replace their gas strut in the anchor hatch? I have a 2008 X-45 but I am assuming they are fairly universal. Do you have a vendor/part number?

TIA,

Josh

If you take one off and measure the extended and collapsed lengths and then read the pressure on the current one you can pretty much get them at online for cheap.

Search gas springs for them.

Attwood SL11-10-1 was what came on my 07 X-Star. I just replaced it, and while it's much better, if I did it again I'd go with a higher pressure so the door isn't so easy to slam shut.

Found this on eBay for $29. 40 psi instead of stock 10 psi so I spent a few more dollars on bet_on_blacks suggestion. I will let you know how it goes - delivery Monday.

40 may be a bit much. If factory was 10 then I would think 15 or 20 would do you.

When the observer seat in my 30 would not stay up with factory 30s I went 40s and it was good to go. I would think the seat is way heavier then the ladder cover.

We shall see, that was the only other option. Hindsight says, 10 should be just fine for that front hatch. I can always send it back!
