    Gas Lift replacements for desk chairs?

    Does anyone know if places like Office Max sell just the gas lift stems for desk chairs?
    Mine gave out and won't stay set anymore so when you sit down it drops about 6" and when you get up it pops back up.

    Hmm, maybe not since I can't seem to pull the post out of either the base or the seat... Of course this is the most comfortable desk chair I've ever had!

    You should replace it with racing shocks, then you can take it off-road.

    Have you checked if it's just the switch to raise and lower it? If that got stuck in, you might just be able to oil it.

    It is very difficult to remove the seat from the post once installedmm This is for obvious safety reasons no doubt. Perhaps with the help of a heavy rubber mallet it can be done.

    I want to put this quote someplace where I can remember it forever.

    A rubber mallet on a spring/air loaded shock sounds like a great idea Let me know the outcome of that if tried

    Although that whole rubber mallet on a spring-loaded piston concept sounds like good youtube material, give it up. You live in the USA, buddy, so when a small part fails on something big, you carry it to the curb. Then you drive the SUV to a big box to buy something from China. It's the American way. Our ancestors drove the Indians from their lands and killed all the passenger pigeons because, when Americans want something, they take it. We don't try to work with what we already have because we're an immediate gratification kind of place. You're obviously some kind of Anti-American communist and probably voted that terrorist Obama.
