How high do these struts raise the hood? In the '74 J-H I bought this weekend (from Tim Fultz), someone in the past replaced the original hood strut with an old-fashioned prop rod. It works fine, but it doesn't raise the hood far enough to avoid backaches.

What I've been using are a pair of wooden dowels, one on each side, to prop the hood (not quite) as high as it will go. What I'd REALLY like is a pair of gas struts that raised the hood nearly as high as the springs will allow.
