Hood struts fasteners

I have new AC Delco gas struts and they have a clip on the end. What kind of fasteners are required to install these.
Is it a ball, shoulder bolt or stud with clip?

I don't think those are the right ones. I have a set in my garage, let me get the part number off the package when I get home tonight.

ONYX, your picture shows 4 shoulder bolts. This is what I need. I'm just missing a couple bolts.

I have the AC Delco 510309 like TurboTguy's link. Maybe I just need to remove the clip.

what is being shown is the left side and the other photo is the right side. Each side only has two bolts, one on the top and one bolt on the bottom.

I found a couple more proper shoulder bolts and removed the clip on the new gas strut. It works perfectly with 4 matching shoulder bolts and no clip. Thanks.
