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 chrome and nickel plated 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 chrome gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

    Great hood struts

    American Muscle quickly delivered my hood struts. The installation was simple and took only 40 minutes. I would recommend this product to those who want function and convenience.

    Easy and Sharp Looking

    Install took less than 30 minutes and I was being extra precautious about hood alignment. Looks sharp and nic not having to prop up the hood.

    Very good product!!

    These were very easy to put on and they definitly look better than the old prop rod. If you are into showing your Mustang or just showing off, this is one must have product.

    Easy install

    Directions say it takes an hour. Took me only 12 minutes to install! Very easy and looks great. Only downside I see is the struts come to full extension way to fast. They need to slow down the last few degrees. Hood bounces otherwise.

    great upgrade

    I bought the chrome version and it looks great. I had to grind off a portion of the plate that bolts to the hinges. it keeps the plate from mounting flush. if you do not do this it will bend your hood. always test close your hood before latching

    Hood Bracket Required Some Grinding to Fit

    Once installed, the chrome MMD Hood Strut Kit looks and works great. Although I order the correct 94-98 kit for my 96 Cobra, and the box label read 94-98, I did have to cut and grind approximately 3/16" of material off of the chrome hood bracket, locally in the area of the strut mounting ball, to get the bracket to bolt-up flush with the stock '96 Cobra hood frame. It is important to check this fit-up prior to torqueing down the hood mounting nuts! It would be very easy to over torque the mounting nuts in an attempt to pull the bracket flush with the hood frame and risk pulling the hood mounting studs out of your hood and/or reverse 'denting' the top side of your hood from the pressure of the bracket's intruding edge below. Not sure whether this is an issue for the stock 94-98 V6 or GT hoods. I actually purchased two (2) of these 94-98 chrome kits. Interestingly, the second chrome 94-98 kit fit my 03 Cobra perfectly with no modifications needed. Comparing the two cars, I noticed that the hood frame on my 03 Cobra was approximately 1/4" 'taller' than the 96's thereby providing more clearance for the strut's hood bracket... perfect fit! Correspondingly, the fender lip on the '03 is set approximately 1/4' 'deeper' than the '96's. Guess that is another hood/fender difference between the SN95 and New Edge designs. Note: Both of my cars have Maximum Motorsport's 4-bolt caster/camber plates; no interference on either. As others have noted, the strut cylinders themselves are painted silver. i.e., not chrome plated. Bottom line: Once on, these MMD chrome struts work great and are great looking. Thanks, American Muscle. Mark S in Warminster, PA

    Some modification needed

    The listing stated that these struts work with aftermarket hoods. I have a Cervini's hood on my car so decided to buy them. Well they do fit but not without modifying the bracket or using a spacer between the bracket and hood. I chose to modify the brackets which took maybe ten minutes with a flapper wheel on a grinder. They work great.and look awesome. Use caution when opening your hood as they are quite powerful and if you are not holding onto the hood it can slam open with a fair bit of force. The hood opens with very little effort and the loss of the prop rod is a huge plus. I would buy them again if I had to but would use the spacer mod if I did. Thanks American Muscle for another great addition to my car.
