Re: [DML] Struts

Got a new pair from SpecialT a few months ago.  Doors bounce at 90, 
open perfectly in the 80s, but nedd a little help at temps lower 
than this.  Bought these to replace ones I bought on eBay earlier 
this year.  They were horrible.  I guess nothing likes to pick up 
these 90 lb. doors when it's not warm out.
