    easy install!

    Well there's really not to much to say, The speed of delivery was great and the actual installation is pretty straight forward with no real surprises. One suggestion that I will make is when it comes to filling the fluid chamber I found that using one of the squeeze type oiler cans with the flexible tip really made the filling easy and not all that messy! I will try to ad pictures later on if possible. Good Luck and Merry Christmas!!!

    Do it yourself...

    I did not call the dealer to get a price on replacing these cylinders, but I am sure it would have been ridiculously expensive. If you have enough mechanical ability to feel comfortable doing it yourself then I would advise you that these cylinders worked out great for me. The job was made a little more challenging for me as I had installed a styling bar previously on this car and this had to come off to replace the cylinders. The styling bar was a more challenging install, but that is another story. FYI, I found plenty of videos on YouTube on how to access and re-fill the hydraulic pump reservoir that powers these cylinders as well as one demonstrating how to prop up the convertible top while replacing the cylinders. Just one note I would share about these cylinders and that is that the fittings on the original hoses went much further into these cylinders than the original cylinders. So much so that I was concerned if they were tight enough, however it have been several months now and everything worked out great. Once I filled the power unit with oil and started cycling the top up and down the air was soon bled out and the top now goes up and down very smoothly. BTW, I only had one cylinder leaking (I found red oil on my garage floor coming out just in front of the driver's side rear wheel), but I would strongly recommend replacing both cylinders at the same time.

    Convertible hydraulic cylinders

    Replaced both cylinders last weekend. These fit perfectly. Up and down about 20 times now with no problems. Too early to say how they'll last but I have no reason to suspect anything but a quality product.

    Convert. top cyl.

    Part did what it was suppose to do, however I had to chase(clean) the threads in the lower end of the cylinder in order to use it. It appeared that the cylinder had been dropped and flattened the "fitting" area of the cylinder. I saved the old cylinder they Can be rebuilt, which I have had done!

    mustang convertible soft top hydraulic lift

    FANTASTIC! Exact fit, easy to install. The soft top has never worked better. Hydraulic fluid inexpensive and easy to place . This is my kids 2000 mustang which they LOVE- the dealership wanted $1200 to fix the problem. We found what we were looking for at American Muscle at a reasonable price of $200 The instructions were precise in so much that we were able to replace both lifts in less time than we expected. We are NOT mechanically inclined. Very thankful we found this site- fast shipping great product!

    Great shopping experience.

    Fast shipping. Fairly easy replacement install. In my opinion, the lift cylinders are inflated in price, but still the cheapest I'd found on the Internet. (The dollar doesn't go far anymore in this volatile economy). I'm glad to be able to use the convertible again. The only small negative regarding the replacement product is the lift cylinders work too well; that is, they lift the top, and slap it down hard on the frame. Have to release the button just before the top gets to the frame, and then slowly lower the last couple of inches. I'm still pleased overall. Thank you, AM.

    Just what was needed!

    Finally got the second one installed yesterday. 2001 Mustang GT convertible. The top worked after replacing one and bleeding the system, but I decided to have a match set of like brand new. The PDF with instruction was tremendous! I could not have done it without that as there was not much of anything on the web for instructions. There are a few refinements that could be made, but it was right on. Made installation a lot easier with pictures. Only draw back is they are made in China :-(
