Hood struts for a 2004

Was doing some work on my wifes 2004 4Runner Limited last night and it literally gave me a headache. The gas struts that hold the hood open are weak and allow the hood to randomly close on unsuspecting people's heads.

Where is the best place to buy replacement struts?

What struts are you using? Redline tend to be the prefered vendor:
