almost like originals
Both sides fit perfectly. The right side was easily done. The how-to video did not mention the original left side has an extra bracket welded to hold an electrical connector. May be not all cars have this bracket. I have to chisel and pry to separate the bracket so that I can reuse it. An extra effort but worth it.

Perfect Fit!
I'm glad I found these after watching a YouTube video on how to install them. I'd ordered and looked for replacements for a long time, and didn't find any. These weren't hard to install. The only obvious difference is that you use a different-sized wrench to get the ball off the top (old units) than you do to install the new ball. Just make sure you're installing the "L" and "R" units (from the driver's perspective). I installed the top of one without checking, and had to take it back out because I didn't pay attention.

Easy to install
I've had to replace my hood shocks before and the top part fit perfectly into the existing post so all I had to do was unbolt the bottoms, install the hood shocks, and re-bolt them. They now hold up the hood just fine.

Nice lifts, needed some adapting to the car.
I got great service from 1A Auto on these gas lifts for the hood of my 1996 ES300. The parts work very well, and their bottom brackets are the right shape and size for the car. However, the left lift in the car comes with an attached (brazed on) bracket to hold an electric relay. I had to chisel off the bracket from the original lift carefully (to preserve the bracket) and install it along with the new lifts. It works great now, but was a good bit of extra effort.
