In the USA we only got hood struts that wear out and fail in cold weather. If you want the best and safest solution, here it is.
This is a complete kit to replace hood struts with OEM Toyota prop rod, Toyota grommet, and Toyota retaining clip. The pieces are noted in the diagram.

Exactly what I was looking for. Huddexpo was was great!
I finally got tired of being bludgeoned by my hood on cold days when I was working on the cruiser. So, I finally got around to looking up parts when I found this kit. Took about 3 minutes to install and came with Toyota parts. Now I don't have to worry about being clobbered by the hood anymore.
While I initially balked at the price, this simple fix will keep your head safe, and is probably cheaper than replacing the gas ones when they fail, again and again.
