PA-18 direct replacement front lifetime sealed strut with 5/8" stainless steel fork. We also make PA-18
replacement Jury Struts, Spacer Tubes, and Strut Clamps. Order all required lift struts and parts at the same time and we can powder coat them together.
Avoid the expense and hassle of annual inspections and enjoy the peace of mind of flying our "Alaska tough" Sealed Struts. Airframes Alaska Lifetime Struts satisfy all current FAA Airworthiness Directives and do not require the recurrent inspections required by AD 99-01-05.
Struts come bare metal unless otherwise specified. If you select the "Standard/Custom Color" powder coat option, please choose either a Standard Color (Insignia White, Juneau White, or Matte Black) or type in your custom Color. We will call to confirm the custom color before we start on your order.
Struts cannot be powder coated once they leave our factory. Non-factory powder coating of a sealed strut destroys the preventative qualities of the oil inside and may distort the shape of the strut. Airframes Alaska is the only strut manufacturer with an FAA approved method for powder coating struts.
