Those should work (though Amazon says they are not available). You’ll want to figure out the weight of top and look for lifts to handle it but not exceed it by too much. Too much and a small person might not be able to close it. You might just want to go to your local auto parts store (Autozone?) and look for them there. That way if they are too light or heavy it would be easier to exchange them. Also, you may need a latch to keep the top closed. You’ll want one that you can work with your free hand.
