Installation Time: 1 Hour
Prop hood open and remove the 8mm fender bolt as shown in photo (Do not remove the rear-most bolt for the hood hinge itself). Place the lower mounting bracket as shown and re-install the fender nut.
Use a 10mm socket to remove the forward most hood hinge nut. Loosen the rear hood hinge nut about 1/4” (enough to slide in the upper strut mounting bracket).
Slide the upper bracket between the rear-most nut and hood hinge and place it over the exposed front stud as shown. Once in place, tighten rear nut and re-install front nut.
Install the gas strut by simply popping the ends over the ball mounts on the brackets.
Repeat Steps 1-4 for opposite side strut assembly. You may remove the factory prop rod at this point. Be sure to close hood carefully after installation to ensure proper alignment of hood. If any adjustment is needed, the mounting holes in the strut brackets are slotted for easy alignment.
I'm pretty certain this is the best shopping experience I've ever had. I found what I wanted on AmericanMuscle.com, then did some price shopping and ended up coming back and order from them because they had the lowest price AND free shipping too. I honestly look forward to spending more money with American Muscle. They have customer submitted photos in addition to their great product photography as well as installation guides from users and manufacturers. Their videos are honest and incredibly useful. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see from them.
