    Push Force on Gas Struts?

    Does anyone have a general idea of how many lbs of push force I would need per door? 150lbs gas struts? 250lbs? Maybe something like this:

    Any insight would be appreciative. Thanks!

    I know on my lambo I had to use 250lb struts, but I used adjustable struts and then I let some pressure out and I would guess they ended up around 200lb force. Go to www.mcmaster.com and go to page 1190 , which shows the reducible struts, and they have many sizes and you can just pick the size you need, go with the 250 lb struts though, I originally used 150 lb struts and once the doors were done with door panels those were a little to light.

    Hope that helps.

    You should measure it for yourself. You will need to know the weight of the door and the mounting points before you can make any guesses.
