Do you mean bonnet and tailgate struts?

I haven't bought any for the GTA, but these people, will regas or supply new struts to a spec. We very good with my Smart and its non standard doors, they made up new struts to replace the existing ones.
www.sgs-engineering.com or more specifically https://www.sgs-engineering.com/car-boo ... ult/alpine
They can also match from the numbers.
For the tailgate, probably best to try and regas the existing units as the new ones don't have the electrical connectors for the HRW.
Let us know how you get on.

They can work from a sketch too (The refill port is under one of the end connectors, you can find it if you unscrew the end), if you can refill the tailgate ones, you'll save yourself a load of wiring challenges.
Good luck.
