I haven't seen an electric lift yet but, The hydraulic lift I saw on an old suburban looked like the top link was just a small hydraulic cylinder. It was kind of interesting as the pump looked a lot like a power-steering pump.

As for an electric lift I think you could get away with a Linear actuator.

Something like this, I am not sure what length of travel or load rating you would need though.

That looks very similar to what the guy on Youtube has. Plus one other piston.

ray the sears man,
Could you post some pictures of your lift? Also If you could take a couple measurements of the lift cylinder retracted and extended that would tell us what the travel range is.

Thanks,
Eric
