Default SRT-10 Hood Issue....

During the summer of 2010 while in Iraq, I bought the SRT-10 Duraflex Fiberglass hood. Took the hood and my new grille to the body shop back in September of 2010. Had the hood shaped, blocked, painted, and had the fenders blended in for a little over $900.

To make a long story short, I cannot use my factory hood support lifts. The body shop said that if I use my factory hood support lifts I would crack the fiberglass hood. So then I was only running the truck only on the main latch, I could not go above 55 mph or the hood would tend to shake a bit. So in december I put my factory hood back on because I could not stand driving no more than 55mph, not for the distance I drive to work during the week. I plan on putting this hood back on this summer. I've looked everywhere and I cannot find them. Does anyone know where I can get hood lift supports for a fiberglass hood?
