Robert: You can also measure them and get them a MC Master/Carr. I have the cat and that helped with the measurements and mine fit just right. On my FC gen door.

Thanks Mark,
I've been working with ORR & ORR and think we have it figured out. The problem was being able to come up with the proper P1 value (PSI). My original springs had been repainted black at some point...I was able to remove some black paint with lacquer thinner and read enough numbers to come up with a match.

One of the gas springs has the "locking sleeve" and is a special order while the other spring he has in stock. I will post the part numbers after I receive and confirm they are the correct ones.

These will work for the M380 and M450.

My curb side engine compartment strut just failed at the ball socket to strut. Orr & Orr is 6 weeks backordered. Can I borrow and replace somebody's spare in the interim? This is Stabilus 3238EX. Thanks

I just ordered two of each and will use a non locking strut temporarily until I have a new one.
