Just got these, cheaper than OEM smart ones by a good margin. $55 shipped. Same length (within a fraction of an inch), same ball cup size, very good strength (not hard to open or close, but stays lifted very well).

Signature brand struts, part number SE115P30-1175, sold by Lift Supports Depot.

They took like 5 minutes to install. once you remove the old ones, these just press on, no need to release the clip. open and shut a few times and they are perfect.

instructions to remove old ones: Evilution - Smart Car Encyclopaedia
i just used a flat head screwdriver and pried the thing out till it released.

also, if your rear window isn't "popping" as much as it should, put a little spot of grease on the latch and it will free it right up.
