There are two different SolidStep Lift Assist Kits, part # LC733937 and part # LC733939. In order to confirm either of these will work for you, you will need to go though the purchase verification process outlined by Lippert. See Below:

The Lift Assist Upgrade Kit will ONLY work with triple and quad SolidStep 3.0 (Fig.1). The Lift Assist will NOT work with double SolidStep 3.0 or with previous versions of SolidStep - including SolidStep Gen 2 (Fig.2). Lift Assist will not work with any other LCI step or any other brand of step. NOTE: SolidStep 3.0 has solid side rails (Fig. 1). SolidStep
2.0 has open side rails (Fig.2).

To verify you have the correct Lift Assist assembly for your SolidStep (If SolidStep is already on your trailer)
A. Measure the tread width on the SolidStep (Fig.3)
B. Measure the width of the door frame (Fig. 4) and round up to the nearest even number to obtain the rough opening.
I. If the tread width is 20 1/8” and the rough opening is 26” - 29” (i.e. 26” or 28”) the step and door are compatible with Narrow Lift Assist Upgrade Kit PN 733937.
II. If the tread width is 24 1/8” and the rough opening is 30” - 33” (i.e. 30” or 32”) the step and door are compatible with Wide Lift Assist Upgrade Kit PN 733939. NOTE: Doors with 34” or 36” rough openings are not compatible with Lift Assist.
NOTE: Tread width of 18 1/8 or 22 1/8 are not compatible with Lift Assist.
NOTE: Single and double SolidSteps are not compatible with Lift Assist.
