The wiper seal was shorter than the one we took off the strut. Would have been a gap so re-used the old one.
TRIMCRAFT PIPER MN STRUT RBLD KT RETRA
It fit. I gave it four stars because the wiper is not continuous but a strip. It went in but there is a slight gap.
As others have stated, was a bit surprised that the wiper was a straight piece. Full disclosure, I did not read the reviews prior to ordering so my bad. Went in OK and appears to be working so far (5 landings).
Only reason I gave 4 stars (and not 5) was the dirt seal is linear (not a continuous circle) like an O-ring. (BTW, the old one I removed was continuous.) It installed fine but there is the gap where dirt could get in. Kit installed with no issues though and the circlip and washer hold the dust seal in place fine.
Wiper ring is not correct, has gap in the new one.
