This is easy you don't need a redesign or extra gadgets. Use AutoZone D95004. It is the perfect amount of resistance for a standard deck lid.
If you're trying to protect against a high wind from slamming it down you shouldn't have it up anyway.
Maybe you had better luck on the Autozone struts, but I went through 2 sets within about a year due to them weakening & not holding the hood. And changing the struts without a helper is a pain in the crotch; however using bungees from hood to the garage rafters helps.
