Liftgate glass hinges

Anyone know an inexpensive source for liftgate glass hinges? I replaced them about 7-8 years ago from the dealer and they need replacing again, but I don't feel like paying dealer prices again. I may check the junkyard.
Thanks.

Liftgate glass hinges

Why are the hinges failing? Mine are still original.

Edit - Are you referring to the glass liftgate shocks?

Hinges. Not shocks.

Rusted stuck. I live in Massachusetts, rust capital of the USA. Popped the caps off, sprayed rust penetrent, still stuck.

Gotcha. I would look elsewhere ( @Kolak , Rock Auto, Amazon, eBay). Once you get the new ones in, maybe use something like white lithium grease on a routine basis to help them last longer.

It does make working on cars a lot less fun.
