I ordered mine from Discount Auto Parts and they were $22.99 a piece. But when I put them on they were not strong enough to hold my suncoast hood up. So I took them back and put back on my stock ones. Don't know if everyone had this problem.

I know using the f-body struts were pretty much mandatory a while back, but if you read their web site now it states “No need for new brackets or special struts”. So maybe the redesign fixed the problem that plagued own of previous years.
A friend and I just went there last week to pick up his new hood, but we forgot to ask them about this.
