Default Engine hatch lift spring

My new to me 98 2700 SCR is missing the gas spring to keep the engine hatch open. There are the ball mounts for one in the middle of the hatch. It will be about 20" compressed and 40" uncompressed. Does anyone know of the part number of the OEM? Are there any mail order or Houston based Maxum parts dealers? Thanks.

take one off and go to the auto parts store and get a replacement......both of mine went flat and I went to shucks here in town and got 2 struts for 50 bucks...they snapped right in....I see you said they were missing...they're pretty common...so..just go to an autoparts store and get 2...tell them they're ball mounts...also measure the balls to make sure you get the right one but I think they are all standard sizes....
