Default 01 LXI Bay Door Gas Struts

Where can I find part numbers for the bay door gas struts. I need them for the battery door, bay door under the slide and regular bay doors. I can not find part numbers on any of my struts. I'm guessing that Orr & Orr is still the best place to buy these. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Randy,

Thanks for locating the posts for me and thanks to Woody for the original post. I swear I spent and over an hour searching the WOG for this information. Is it possible there is there actually too much good info on the WOG... Naahhh!

I was only able to find them because I remembered them and had comments in them.
Searching is tough because of things like:
Do I search for?????
Thermostats or T-Stats or Stats or tstats or AC controls or HVAC controls or?????.... you get the idea .. In the example T-stats got me what I was looking for..... and now anyone who searches for anything to do with thermostats will find this thread!
You can see how searches get ugly quick!

Searches are greatly affected by thread titles and what I like to refer to as "cutesy titles" and terminology and now the dreaded texting abbreviations which really screw things up.

Also check out Bansbach.com for gas springs. I had much better luck than with Orr & Orr.

Just cleaning up my posts. I installed the gas springs today that I ordered from Orr & Orr. Not too hard but there must be a trick to getting the old gas spring out. I won't tell you how I did it but it was effective and efficient and involved a slight bit of violence.
