Replacement universal strut (or 295mm version?):
ExtendedLength-pivot2pivot 	AvailablePressures 	PartNo. 	Rod/Cylinder-mm 	Stroke
315mm 	100N-to-1100N 	U31510 	10mm/22mm 	125mm 	$44.00
We need another strut+clevis+M6/M8nut-and-bolt... and it's not
going to easy to compress it that 800N to get in place, but doable.

The originals were close to:

(USD$72 for 4 struts, I believe the measurements are 800N of
pressure/force, 293mm pivot-point to pivot-point maximum, 114mm of piston
movement, 19mm? diameter)

Alternatively, maybe a car strut would do the trick, might be able to get
a 400-500N 293/295mm pair of struts for a Falcodore boot or Landrover bonnet?
and a couple of the ball studs from Strut Specialists.
