HDX Bed lift gas struts/shocks

As some of you who helped me last week know, I have a 2011 HDX that has been through the ringer more than once. Well it is back in one piece now-with rebuilt drivetrain-waiting to be picked up. Anyway the dump bed gas struts are shot, one is missing actually. Does anybody know the specs of these? I would like to find a pair on ebay as I see I can get 2 for less than one from AC. I need to know the length extended and retracted, as well as how many #s of pressure. I was thinking like a 60# or more so it dumps easy with a load of rock in it. But I still need to be able to lower it back down by myself! Thanks again!

Yea I would try E-BAY just try to find a pair for a HDX I looked at mine and there is no pounds listed on mine,yours might have more pressure since you have a different bed and the length is probably different also.

thanks guys, i found the AC ones that are $40 but I assume any gas strut will work as long as the length is right, I was thinking about getting like a 60# or bigger size since the box is pretty big and would hold 1000# of rock easily. If you guys happen to know the length that would be great otherwise I will get it home this week and take the old one off. thanks!

Good find RD I figured the bigger bed would require stiffer shocks.......probably be to much money to produce different ones..........

Joes5091 I appreciate the offer, but I do need 2 of them and I'm not sure I will save much buying 1 from you and 1 from ebay vs buying 2 at a time on ebay.

I did get the one I have off and am having a ridiculous time finding any info on the thing even though there are numbers all over it
