View Full Version : Best place to buy gas springs/struts?

05-09-2017, 03:35 PM
I'm looking to buy 15 gas springs/struts for this new-to-me boat. I'm not loving the pricing I'm seeing at local retail or amazon. Where/what site is the best for quality springs with great pricing?

Nautique parts has a bunch. As long as stroke is the same I bet they would work. Worth a look.

I'm interested too. The gas struts on my 93 S&S 190 motor cover are missing. The upper bracket on one strut is missing as well. Any chance to find stock replacements?

I would check out your local dealer. They can give you the best price and knowledgable info on everything you need!

MCparts depot.com. Low prices.

Rvupgradestore.com. I just bought 3 for my prostar....I think I paid 40 bucks total. They were 10.00 each and then it was a shipping fee of 8.00 for all three. Way cheaper than the 20 a piece amazon wants

I purchased some replacements from waterskis.com

They have descriptions of what hatches and models they fit. To make sure, I emailed them and they responded within 24hrs.

I got the glovebox and 2 engine hatch springs for $14.99ea + shipping.

If you are buying a bunch MCpartsdepot.com might be a good choice. I bought 2 for $8.80 each but shipping was $18.00.

I got mine from liftsupportsdepot.com

I thought their prices were fair and they can cross reference the struts over the phone if you can't find a replacement direct on their website. Made it very easy vs. trying to guess. Free shipping if you spend over $40.

Same as truckeeEP, it's pretty easy to select if you have the old ones to go off of, just pick a extended length, compressed length, and weight and then see the options.

Thanks for all the tips gents. I've got length & lbs for each spring I need and will start shopping the reco'd sites tonight.

I've had good luck with eBay. They were cheaper than I found anyplace else but it was a bit 'harder' to find what I needed.

I'm telling you my site is the cheapest......I shopped the he'll out of it....10 bucks a pop and they only charged 7 dollars shipping once.....

CBRYAN70, you were right about that site. Just ordered two for my observers seat. Thanks

Beginning of the season, got in glove box, wouldn't stay up.
got under observer seat wouldn't stay up and I know from past experience the engine cover is the same.
So has anyone already done the hard part and measured these?
