Default FC gas springs

I have two models of gas spring inside my coach. The first is a SUSPA c16-13313 model. It is slooow to open on the overhead compartments. The second is a SUSPA c16-12104 50 lb unit. It is fast to open, meaning I open the door quickly and feel little resistance and it holds the door fully open. This is the kind I want on all the doors, I hate to stand there waiting for the door to slowly open.

They are 12.2 inches extended, 8.3 inches compressed.

So far SUSPA wants $40 each, and a place called CustomPickup wants $25.99 ea. Has anyone found a better deal on these?

The ORR&ORR units come in 40 and 60 lbs. I found using the stronger ones on my older coach caused the hinge screws to pull out when traveling. Also the compressed and extended sizes are different.

After searching this afternoon and adding this question on the forum, I started looking again and found this place, $16.95 ea. Why I didn't find it earlier I don't know.

Gardner, my inside door springs are Orr&Orr H9412-35.

They work well, not too strong, hold the doors up ok. 16 dollars now. I have a receipt from 2003 and they were 10 dollars.

I got mine from pplmotorhomes

I used the 31-2250 for the inside compartment doors. They work perfectly. They are 35# and 8.7 -12.2 compressed/extended. Looks like $17.89 each.
