Description
Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your SN95 Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts from AmericanMuscle for clean modern looks and convenience.

Style And Strength. Designed to get rid of that old ugly prop rod, this set of two powerful yet sleek MMD gas struts not only makes opening your Pony's hood much easier, but also holds it securely in place. Made from lightweight steel and aluminum, they have a black powercoated finish to give your engine bay a much cleaner appearance.

No Drilling Required. The stamped steel brackets included in this MMD kit are designed to bolt into the existing mounting holes in the hood so there is no drilling required for installation. Struts can be installed on factory hoods as well as aftermarket hoods that use the factory bolt location. If your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, use caution when opening the hood due to the power of the strut.

Application. This Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is specifically designed for use on the 1994 to 1998 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT and SVT Cobra models. The Kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

Just buy it

This kit bolts on in about 10 minutes and works very well. Don't listen to comments about bolt-on kits being a poorer design than ones requiring drilling. I should have bought one of these years ago.

Carbon Fiber Hood? I see people saying they work great for fiberglass hoods, but I have a Carbon Fiber hood, and it's very very light, will these cause bowing when I go to shut the hood? Are they too strong for normal use? I also got rid of the factory hood latch and rely solely on hood pins to keep my hood down.

  • I also have a carbon fiber hood with only hood pins to secure it. I have had no issue with "bowing" of the hood when closing it. The only problem I had was installing it. The hood I have had wider reinforcement panels that ran paralell with the edge of the hood that interferred with the installation. I had to shim the bolts on the fender to allow clearance for the hood to close. Once installed I have had no problems with the struts, and love not have the prop rod in the way when workibg under the hood.

    MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

    Great product, very well designed and instruction were very good. They installed in about 30 minutes and looked great but due to the aftermarket caster/camber plates I had previously installed the bracket would hit on it and not allow the hood to close properly so I had to return them. The return process was excellent. I sent them back via the post office and got a credit notice from American Muscle within 3 days after I put them in the mail. I was very disappointed that I couldn't keep them on my car and had to return them.

    Great idea

    looks like a good product and is easy to install but the left side of the hood did not line up with the fender after installation, I do not believe it was the product because the right side lined up good, this was for a 98 cobra convertible, also American Muscle stood behind the product and made it right.

    Excellent fit, easy install

    This is the second set of MMD hood struts I've installed. The last was on my '11 GT, and although that was a very easy install, it did require a bit of work around the sound induction tube. This set went on my '98 Cobra and I can't believe how easy it was. Literally 5 minutes, perfect install. And they work great! Highly recommend if you spend any time at all under your hood.

    Prop Rod - No Mas!!!!

    This was a great bolt-on mod. It was easy to install, and puts the hood up just as high as the prop rod. The fit and finish of the parts was excellent and installed in about 20 mins. Plus I no longer feel like Fred Flintstone when I show off the Cobra motor!

    Cervini Hood

    This product will not work with a Cervini Ram Air hood on a 1997 Mustang GT. It does seem to be quality but the only problem is it does not fit my application.

    Well worth the price.

    Exellent product for the price. I can now literally pop up my hood with one finger. Easy to install, fits great with total clerance between the struts and the body of the car. Really glad I pick this one up!

    Convinent and good looking mod.

    This product from Modular Muscle Design is great, it really helps when you need to open your hood. The hood struts are easy to install. They provide a great convenience when working on my car. Plus, who wants to see a prop rod at a car show?

    Easy MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

    I've had a hard time with my hood blowing down during car shows. The factory prop bar never holds. I was always afraid it would crack my hood. Ordered the MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit and received it in two day. Took all of 20 min to install with absolutely no alterations of the kit or my car. Everything bolted up perfectly. Hood opens a closes like a dream. No bar to get into my way. I do want to paint the bolts and nuts to match the kit, the reds stock nuts and bolts stick out and look a bit strange. It's an easy and useful product to add to your Mustang.
