    You had me scratching my head,,couldn't understand why the hood needed a shock.

    I think you are looking for hood "struts" ??

    Seen these in use a couple of times and they are solid. One strut on one side does the job, but with 2 you are set. Pretty dang easy to install, as long as you have a cheap rivet gun for $10 from any hardware store.

    Make some measurements and mark with a pencil.
    Drill a few small holes.
    Pop in a few rivets with a cheap hand-squeeze rivet gun.
    Snap on the struts.
    Have a cold beer and enjoy.

    Half hour if you don't rush and make sure your measurements and marks are accurate.

    I have the Redline hood struts on my WRX and the quality is top notch. I plan on getting another set for my Taco.
