Support Arms for Bigfoot 17

Hi Michael. Not sure what's available in the way of auto parts store in your area. There is a manufacturer's name and model number normally stamped on the housing and you can order them online or Canadian Tire, LORDCO or any other parts depot can probably help. They're not that expensive - I'd replace them both. If one of the old ones is still good keep it as a spare.
Good luck

Hello Burrorjo, thanks for the suggestion. I do have some local auto supply places to check out locally. Appreciate the suggestion

Hi Dave,

Thanks. They were my first stop, but unfortunately they’re out of stack with no stated ETA on new stock. I fear production may have been halted.

I tried everywhere to source new ones. I had to return two different sets (one of which was supposed to be the correct weight but actually caused the rock guard to fly up, give me a black eye, knock my glasses off, and nearly kill me)!

I received the correct items from: <support@liftsupportsdepot.com>,

Which is in California. I think I was able to find a 17" strut from them, and these replaced a 17.5" strut which lifted a bit higher. When I asked them again about a 17.5, they had an extension connection which they mailed to me at no charge.

So A+++ for customer service!
