went ahead and ordered these lifts to alleviate the issue of the bowed hood I have from StreetTrends.

Found out that the stock lift supports are rated around 145 lbs.

So i went with 107 lbs. They work fine.

BEST of all they are a direct fit. 10mm Ball fitting on each end and snap in place.

Theres no having to retro fit to a 6mm ball.

The site is

The ones I ordered are 48127 with steel fittings. You can get them cheaper if you specify plastic.

Evidently they are made by Strongarm. However the selection is wide , you can literally specify lengths in 0.01" increments.

Here are some details. Yeah , they were $23 each, for steel, $16 each for plastic. Factory is plastic, but the steel ones are plated and looked nicer.
