Only taking a punt on this based on past experience with these gadgets, but as long as the struts are same physical sizes, the only difference is probably the higher gas rating - giving them a greater holding capacity.

Bloke at work had some fitted to his solar panels and they just didn't pump the panels up as desired and after considerable research into getting replacement struts, he was advised by the solar panel installer that he would simply add more gas to the existing units to overcome the problem.

Good luck - Phil

The Strut Man (a franchise) is helpful on the Central Coast. There are others across this big, brown land!

He repaired my struts, replaced as needed and put more gas as required. A thoroughly professional job.

Reasonable price too.

No association, just a satisfied customer.

If you know the extended and compressed lengths and the pressure required you can also buy them online form a variety of places like Ovesco.

The new ones will be ok, they will make lifting the roof a little easier.
You could have just had your original ones regassed.
