Overhead console door strut spring shock
#1
Anyone know the part number or cross-reference for the small (I think they are 90 lbs) springs that hold up the upper overhead console doors across the front of the coach?  The number I have is from Austin Hardware (1-800-821-3520) AVSE400V-PS90 30 0974 
I’ll call them if I have to but was hoping to get it from Amazon...
Length extended: 11.5”
length collapsed: approx. 7.5” (not sure where the collapsed measurement is taken)
Length of stroke: approx. 4.75”
I think from the numbers that this is a 90 lbs spring... or PS90 may refer to the end pieces...

This is a great idea: To figure out how much lifting strength you need for a strut spring shock, place a rod/firm stick at the point of lifting, with a scale under it. The amount of weight pushing down, at the mounting point, is how much lifting strength you need.

these are the ones i put on my 99 a few months ago and they work perfectly.  having a hard time understanding why you would have a 90lb strut on a small overhead door.  

also a picture of the overhead console doors in mine     it took two for each door.  and they work fine
