    Sources for various model Polaris hood lift springs

    I'd like to start a thread so we can have all of the info for aftermarket gas lift springs for the various models.

    SLX/Pro 1200, Virage, Genesis, and MSX. Post up what we know.

    Please also list the technical info. Length compressed and extended, spring force in Newtons (and/or pounds), etc

    When I have time I will try to cross link to the existing threads regarding stainless steel and custom made sources.

    I've got one on a hinge I had for my Virage. I can measure it tomorrow.
