Stabilus Bloc-O-Lift

Good evening and Merry Christmas everyone,
I recently took a good look at my MH seats and all four are dismal. The fabric is rotting and crumbling, the arms of the captains chairs are falling apart, etc. At first I thought I'd get new ones, but then I saw what new ones cost and decided recovering might be better. More on that when I get them done. However, under the captains chairs there is a strut with a lever that allows the sitter to recline or sit up on demand. It is called a Bloc-O-Lift and is made by Stabilus, a company still in existence. The company still exists but the strut is long gone. When you Airstreamers restore your seats what are you replacing that strut with? Looking at Stabilus's website there are literately hundreds of struts. Which one is the right one? Can't go by part number as their catalogue numbers have changed. Many thanks,
