Need Tailgate Struts

I am searching for 2 tailgate struts for my 2022 Taos. I am unable to find VW factory ones and am now thinking of ordering through the aftermarket. Any suggestions or direction on the topic would be appreciated. Thanks.

Here is the part number. I found a few available online

Question: why do you need 2? Lack of wide availability is likely due to lack of widespread need for such a part on the 1st couple years of production.

I was going to ask this too.
Maybe he backed up into something with the liftgate up?
Liftgate was open and garage door inadvertently closed snapping both struts. Definitely a freak occourance and no other damage to either the car or the door. Completely understand that the availability is based on the newness of the car. I secured replacements from information relayed on this forum. Thank you.
