I need to replace some gas shocks made in Hollandn, I found an American source but the force is measured in pounds, not Newtons.Anyone here know how to convert 700 N to pounds force and 520 N to pounds?

1 lbf (pound-force) = 4.448 222 N

For approximate answer just divide force in newtons by 4.45 to get pounds-force.

700n = 157.3663lbs

520n = 116.9007lbs.
