The aircraft was approaching airport, following V50, from west at 7500 ft MSL. Tower gave clearance to land runway 23. On board data showed runway length to be 9020 ft. During descent, tower changed runway clearance to runway 18, with approval to square on right base leg. Turning final with gear and flaps down and propellers control in landing position, the runway appeared in the proper position in the windshield. First touchdown was near numbers, but 2 bounces required power to stabilize and land. The runway appeared to still have ample length for stopping. The plane rolled off end of runway onto grass at approximately 15 KTS. No damage was first apparent. Later a hydraulic hose leak, of the landing gear, was found in the rear engine compartment. This required an overnight stay for repairs. I believe the tower should have warned that the new assigned runway was only 4001 ft in length.

Title: SMA LANDS FAST, LOSES CTL AND ROLLS OFF END OF RWY.
Narrative: THE ACFT WAS APCHING ARPT, FOLLOWING V50, FROM W AT 7500 FT MSL. TWR GAVE CLRNC TO LAND RWY 23. ON BOARD DATA SHOWED RWY LENGTH TO BE 9020 FT. DURING DSCNT, TWR CHANGED RWY CLRNC TO RWY 18, WITH APPROVAL TO SQUARE ON R BASE LEG. TURNING FINAL WITH GEAR AND FLAPS DOWN AND PROPS CTL IN LNDG POS, THE RWY APPEARED IN THE PROPER POS IN THE WINDSHIELD. FIRST TOUCHDOWN WAS NEAR NUMBERS, BUT 2 BOUNCES REQUIRED PWR TO STABILIZE AND LAND. THE RWY APPEARED TO STILL HAVE AMPLE LENGTH FOR STOPPING. THE PLANE ROLLED OFF END OF RWY ONTO GRASS AT APPROX 15 KTS. NO DAMAGE WAS FIRST APPARENT. LATER A HYD HOSE LEAK, OF THE LNDG GEAR, WAS FOUND IN THE REAR ENG COMPARTMENT. THIS REQUIRED AN OVERNIGHT STAY FOR REPAIRS. I BELIEVE THE TWR SHOULD HAVE WARNED THAT THE NEW ASSIGNED RWY WAS ONLY 4001 FT IN LENGTH.
