    I've heard with those kind of gas shocks though you need to drill into your hood. Is this true?? I want to stay far away as possible from having to drill into the hood.

    Redline is the only place I have ever seen them. They installed a set on a car in right in front of me and the WFC last year. $100 a set though, so, they are nice, but I dont know.

    Thanks for the link BlueStang

    Can't decide if I want the Plus, or the SS one's for 109....
