Yes, this is exactly what it is.  I need to post some photos for him but didn't know what thread/topic he wanted posted so I told him tag me where they belonged.  I'll get those loaded shortly. :)

 I use junk shock absorbers & struts to make some parts & projects, they are  cheap and the rods are 

very durable, probably a good hm equivalent, and if  the chrome plating does not have to be 

cut away, they do not   rust easily. The cylinders, sometimes pistons and valving can have handy 

uses too. Drawbacks: chrome plating must be cut with carbide or grinding wheel, much of the     

valving is made on a dust-masher and may be brtttle. Care must br  used when drilling to vent  gas

and oil  must be drained before figuring  out how to cut them apart. I use a  pipe-cutter and lathe

mostly. If you want to try this and find a better way, I would like to know because it is a messy project. I also salvaged the tops of Diesel pistons for some

Sometimes using what you have on hand is better and easier then what you can buy.  Not always but sometimes.
