Default How do I replace Camry hood struts?

My son has a 1993 Camry and we need to replace the little
gas struts that hold up the hood. I can buy replacement
struts at Pep Boys, but I'm concerned about whether the
non-Toyota struts will adapt.

I can't see how to remove the existing Toyota strut from
the bottom bracket that is bolted to the car body. Anyone
familiar with this?

Thanks,
-Al

From Haynes Repair manual:

1- Grasp the upper end of the strut securely and pull out sharply to detach
it from the ballstud.
2- Remove the bolt from the lower end and remove the strut.
3- Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
