  • Chaise Lounge gas shock upgrade?

    Anybody have a better option than the factory replacement from Nautique Parts. Seems like they’re just too weak. I replace them every 18months it seems due to failure. I do t have the exact dimensions. , maybe someone can chime in.

    Yeah, kind of constant struggle for me too. I sometimes use https://www.liftsupportsdepot.com/ but you have to figure out what you need.

      If you can determine the model number, you can typically cross the gas lift into other more cost effective brands & suppliers.

      The two key items you need are length and lb rating.

          From what I found on NP it’s a 10.5inch 30lb gas shock. I am thinking somewhere between 40-50lb upgrade

            Actually measured the shock. I have 8 3/8 end to end , 7 1/2 center line socket to center line socket . Compressed is 5 3/4 center to center . It’s the glove box shock which is a 20lb shock. Just wanted to clarify .


            Trying to decide if I should go up to 30lb or go 40lb? Any input?

            My first inclination was (2) 30lb and (2) 40lb. Give it a go. If 30 works and 40’s too strong I could split shocks.
