Compact Jr roof lift

Has anyone replaced the metal lift-slides in their Compact with gas-cylinder lift struts? If so, what size did you use and where did you locate the mounting points?

Well, after some head-scratching and measuring, I ordered a set of gas struts that I hope will work. They should arrive in the mail Friday or Saturday. I will try to do the mod and let you know how it goes in a few days.

If it's a bust, I'm out a hundred bucks and some sweat equity. No risk, no reward!

I think levered they may work better....a lot of them are quite strong used straight.
