Hello Mark, you beat me to it !!!
But please remember the input from Bill after my post as they are many variable and the specs I have/gave were not complete, therefore it worked then.

The stroke is 8 mm
The Diameter of the cylinder is 19 mm
With 8 mm hinge on each side.

They were $125 each (and free shipping).
These were the highest standard they are, guaranty for
They also had a cheaper standard line.

I need to replace the gas struts for the engine
I've looked at the forum and found Bill R's note
that they are rated at 400
Newton (90 pounds), and I measure the length at 22.5"
extended length and
a stroke length of 8".
The problem is I cannot find a gas strut with bolted
seem to come in clevis and ball joint.
Does anyone have a source reference?
