Description
Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your New Edge Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of Modern Muscle Design Mustang 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 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 1999 to 2004 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models. The Kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

What an improvement

I was considering buying the Redline Tuning Quicklift Elite hood struts, but didn't really feel comfortable drilling into my car. I was afraid I'd get the holes a little off and it wouldn't work right.

Will these work with aftermarket hoods? I have a 2001 V6, and i purchased a hood from your website. Will this work on my hood?

  • Absolutely, as long as it uses the factory bolt locations. The hoods we carry utilize the OEM latch and hinges and you shouldn't have any issues installing them on your aftermarket hood. Just keep in mind that if your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, be careful when opening it due to the power of these struts!

  • If the hood mounts on to the original hinge brackets, there shouldn't be a problem. Make sure that you have the hood alignment before you close the hood for the first time. (Scissoring off paint will ruin your day.) If the new hood is lighter than the stock one, be carefull. The hood will come up quickly. Mine are on a stock hood and it easily opens!

    What an improvement

    I was considering buying the Redline Tuning Quicklift Elite hood struts, but didn't really feel comfortable drilling into my car. I was afraid I'd get the holes a little off and it wouldn't work right. When I saw these bolt on's available for the newer models, I started wondering why they couldn't make bolt ons for my '01. Long story short, as soon as AM had the black version (who wants chrome, really) of the bolt on struts for the 99-04, I bought them without thinking twice. Came with no instructions, but looking at the stock pictures on the product page was more than enough to figure it out. Installation took maybe 15 minutes, and everything works just as it should. The struts will raise the hood to the full height after manually lifting it about half way. Takes little effort to lower the hood halfway, and after that gravity takes effect. Remember this, or your hood will most definitely slam shut.

    The hood struts are the perfect addition to any mustang. They look great and function perfectly. The install was extremely simple, I will say it does help to have a second set of hand though. The black brackets look good but I plan on painting the brackets to match my car and having a much more factory look.

    Great addition

    Read the instructions. Installation was easy, around 20 minutes from start to finish. Be careful, do not over tighten the hood nuts. Once you pick the hood up about 6-8 inches it lifts right up. No more annoying prop rod. Awesome!

    Hood Struts

    The best $100 that I have spent on the car yet. I live in a windy area and I'm always nervous about leaving my hood open even if it's for 5 seconds. The previous owner had the wind catch the hood and smash the window. Needless to say, these hood struts are one of the best investments I have in the car. I absolutely love them, I highly recommend them even if you don't live in a windy area because they are extremely convenient.

    Very Easy Install**Great Product**MMD Hood Struts

    To all of you who are considering a Hood strut kit this is the one. I have installed two other strut kits in the past & without a doubt The MMD Brand is the Best. This was installed on my 2003 Mustang Mach1 which has a heavy hood & it works like a charm. Thanks American Muscle for another quality Mustang Product.

    Easy install and great product!

    This literally took me 10 minutes to install and I wish I had done this mod years ago. I was able to get rid of the annoying prop rod which gets in the way when working on the engine and doesn't look as nice. I highly recommend this item!

    GREAT product that even works with aftermarket hoods!

    Install is only 20 mintues AT MOST! Super sleek look that eliminates the need for that ugly (and in the way!) prop rod. This even works with my TruFiber Mach 2 aftermarket hood seamlessly! Thanks again American Muscle for selling such a WONDERFUL item at a GREAT price.

    good product for the price

    I had several issues, but not with the item itself. The first one I got had a missing L bracket. I called and they sent out another kit. Waited................got that one..........opened it and.......NO L brackets. Called AGAIN, and said all I need is the right side bracket. They sent another kit and I FINALLY got it done. I had it all on except the one side. Got it done now and it works well.

    This kit looks great and installs easily!

    I never liked the prop rod on my 2002 GT, and I saw this kit available at American Muscle. After reading the great reviews, I decided to give it a try. Not being all that mechanically gifted, I had reservations, but I installed both sides in much less than the hour the instructions indicate. Honestly, it's a clean look and works great! I highly recommend this over the factor installation. I love my Mustang, but why didn't Ford think of this?
