Fiberglass top tailgate window gas struts part#

The rear window gas struts on my fiberglass top needs more than viagra. I've done a search on here and came up with replacement parts list. Part number 752940 available from JWF Technologies.

Anyhow, I went to verify the actual struts on my top and there is no number that coincides with that part number.

I know the actual strut is made by Lift o mat, but the part numbers have been worn away somewhat.
I think it reads 90033DB 0100N 45/94 1/5 but its a really tough read.

Just wan to confirm that part number (752940) is correct from the list before I actually order from them. Anyone here order gas struts from them?

Thanks in advance!

Check the price, they're pretty cheap at mcmaster.com - I think you need 20 or 30 pound struts. You just have to measure them, and I think you ends will swap.

Thanks for the link and info. I'll check measurement tomorrow. Man it got cold out there!
There is this place near me that I might check out http://www.jjtrailers.com/ tomorrow.
I remember getting some replacement gas struts for a truck cap a few years ago.
Might just take the d90 there and have them look at it and see if they have something in stock.

Christmas shopping in the 90 tomorrow! Gonna have to take the bench seat out!

Follow-up Post:

Braved the cold and measured 11 1/2" housing barrel, 23 1/4" +/- fully opened. Looking at the McMaster website, I'm not sure if I theres a match. I'll do a search for lift o mat and see if there's a match with those dimensions.

4x 9416K86 M6 nylon ball socket fittings
2x 9512K12 304 stainless ball brackets

I found this information on http://www.myrovers.com/?cat=4

Beware . . .

Those gas struts are about an inch too long, overall, when I tried to install them. I just bought a pair of them and they are too long and you can't close the lift gate. I would guess about a half inch less total length, and a half more on the stroke and it would be fine, so an inch overall. They measure to the base of the threads, not to the center of the opening when the adaptor is on, which accounts for the extra inch.

I ended up buying them from JWF Technologies after going through the same fitment problem - this is even after going to the place I mentioned and them taking measurements.

Anyway JWF was easy to deal with and they had the gas struts in stock.
