Gas struts under bed

A little over zealous bed raising to access storage seems to cause the gas struts to over extend and lock out; Forcing the closure of the bed will yield disastrous results at the frame hinge and wall attachment. I need to replace struts now. Any suggestions on strut types to use? Anyone had this issue?

Hold up the bed with a 2x4 or something, and remove the struts. Remove clips at ends and examine. You might be able to reset on workbench. Lower bed carefully. Besides, if you do need to replace the struts, you'll need the numbers, the size, pressure, etc.
