Default Curbside bay doors.

One of my gas struts has failed on one of the curbside bay doors on our M380. I have searched past posts, but can’t seem to find any posts about where to find a replacement.
The struts are 11 in. retracted and 19 in. extended. Has anyone found a suitable replacement? TIA.

The struts I use I found on Amazon.
They are from Lift Support Depot 36” 80psi 13mm ends.
Manufacturers number ST360M80.
Working Very Well.
As they say TOO EASY!

Hope this Helps!

How did you get a 36 inch cylinder to work in place of one with 8 inches of travel?
Theses measure 11 inches retracted and 19 in extended.

Hold the phone! Found one, an exact OEM on line. I’ll wait to see if it is indeed what they say it is before posting the source.
Thanks for your help!

They are a few posts on M380 gas struts for our bays, search Dan Bradner, I ordered his suggested strut, it fit perfect..I think I ordered from Austin Hardware,

Guys, note that he is looking for curbside, not driver's side. I never had an issue with those, so no info on parts.
