ASW19/20 Canopy strut by [email protected]
My strut is finally flat. Time to change it. Would like to buy the parts now, have them on hand and avoid being down for an extended period of time. Who knows the dimensions/newton/etc? McMaster part numbers? Or someplace else you'd recommend buying from. Thanks!
