I got some for my car back in May of '16. I found them on ebaymotors Australia ("cars dot ebay dot com dot au") by searching for "VE Commodore boot struts". Just make sure you look in the description to make sure they are for cars equipped with a spoiler AND that the seller will ship to the US. I'm pretty Holden used only the larger spoilers on its cars, so probably don't need to worry that you'll be getting dupes of what you already have.

A year ago, I paid about AU$50 for mine. The new struts did make a difference in lifting the lid, but not a tremendous difference. VF struts would probably not be a good solution since their boot lids are aluminium, not steel, like the VE lids were.
