Default LS6 canopy gas spring

We (3 owners) have an LS6 with a "tired" gas spring that lifts the canopy. A simple google search and visits to Wings and Wheels does not turn up a source or specifications for this spring. Does anyone know a replacement part number, or specifications, or a source for a replacement gas spring?

Thanks for that lead S6. Did you get one from LS Technologies, and if so do you have the part number or specifications?

Not for the canopy gas strut.
For the trailer.
I will be at the airport tomorrow.
I will look for part number and other specifications and let you know
tomorrow night.

Bansbach Easylift is a good source for gas springs. I replaced my trailer springs a few years ago. If you can get the measurements and strength of your current spring they probably have a replacement.
