i can get you part numbers for the hood shocks and the stud balls but not the bracket itself, because it comes off of another set of hoodshock for the trunk of an Acura RL so its actually 2 sets of hood shocks to make 1 custom , fit onto the hood. i just have a bunch of the brackets laying around because when we replace the trunk hood shock we reuse the bracket that's already on there. so when i get back to work ill get the part numbers and post em up for you if you want just the brackets we can work something out if you'd like.

well if your going to the junk yard you have to look for an 02-08' Acura TL hood shock and i believe you can also get the stud balls it connects to off of the hood i do think those just screw off but the bracket is gonna be the pain in the ass to find since its from 05-09' Acura RL's that have the bracket you need.

the length of the hood shocks are 15" fully extended not sure of their collapsed length though.
