Seat Hatch gas spring replacement, any interest?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Anyone need a replacement gas spring for their seat hatch?

The spring on my seat hatch needs replacement. I tracked down the part from the manufacturer SPD. They are 12.50 for 5 with a $30 minimum order + 10 shipping = $4 each. So I can get 10 of them for less than $30. I see web sites selling them for $15 each. If there is enough interest I will buy 10 and sell them for the $4.

Thanks,

Andy

If the group thing doesn't work out, check out NAPA auto parts. They sell the SPD brand. I bought mine a couple years ago for the seat hatch and engine cover for approx. $8 ea. The shock will have the pound rating right on it, then all you do is measure the extended and collapsed length and there you go.

I need new gas springs for my engine hatch. If they are the same ones I'm in for 2, and if by any chance they are the same ones that the V-drive engine locker hatches use, then I'll be in for a total of 4. I can measure extended and collapsed length and see if i can find a pound rating on it.

I am talking just the seat hatch. It is 17" extended and 10" at full close and 38lbs. Talking to SPD they have one 17"x10 1/4 and 40lbs or 50 lbs. I was thinking the 40 lbs was closest. I called Napa and they want $17 + ups.

The spd part # is gsni-5200-40 or -50 for the 50 pound.

Not enough interest so I am buying local.
