Default Question about front hood struts on '93 Camry

I need to replace the front hood struts on a '93 Camry (4 cyl).
I can get the old strut off the top ball-joint, but I can't see how
to remove the strut from the metal bracket at the bottom.

The strut-pin seems to be held in the bracket by some kind of
unusual spacer with slots in it, but I can't see how to remove
this spacer.

Will I need to resort to buying the whole strut assembly from
Toyota, or will I be able to simply replace the struts with ones
I can get at Pep Boys or a similar shop?

Most struts are available aftermarket from the usual places.
They might be able to help with installation info, since Camry is a
top selling model.
I get mine at a CarQuest outlet.
Quite a bit cheaper than dealer parts dept.
Good luck
