However, some of the struts are missing the cables. Does anyone know what these cables are formally called and how you go about buying them? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
There aren't any cables unless the storage door is underneath a slide.
But, if you need to replace them, you can easily make them yourself. Most hardware stores sell the same cable and will cut it to length for you. (Some places call it "wire rope".) Then you get the appropriate size ferrule (clip / clamp) to make the loop whatever length you need, and crimp it with a set of pliers. It's very easy.
The doors not opening all the way can be a pain sometimes. For me, the wet bay is the biggest peeve. For that compartment, I removed the clip holding the bottom part of the door shock / strut. Now, I can easily pop the strut off and them pop the cable off, so the door opens as far as I need it. Then I replace it all when I'm done, minus the retaining clip.
