Review & Install Video

Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your S197 Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of officially licensed "Mustang" Hood Struts from Modern Muscle Design for modern convenience and impressive under hood styling.

Officially Licensed by Ford. This set of two Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts are officially licensed by Ford and feature the modern "MUSTANG" text in block lettering laser cut out of each mounting bracket, these are not cheap decals that will peel off in a matter of months.

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 officially licensed Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is designed for use on the 2005 to 2014 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models. The Kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

'13 & '14 additional requirements I asked a shop to install these, but after the technician ruined my hood installing the CDC Shaker, no one would install them because the instructions say to cut an inch out of some plastic piece and basically move the piece under the plane of the hood. For those of you that installed this on your '13s, did you omit this step?

BlackSunshine73

  • I did not skip the step I just cut less than 1 inch and check the location then cut the rest. It will be two part once you make the cut. The only difficult portion was putting the screw back on.. I did use the medal insert to install part back to frame. I have a 2013

will hood struts work on a Cervini's hood will these hood struts work on a Cervini's hood? if not, which ones will?

HarleyFitz

  • The hood struts fit the standard hood bolt holes. Beyond that it might be good to check out if the Cervini structure is flexible so that the struts push it up when the hood is closed.

I have a 2016 Mustang GT and seen this hood strut kit in the 15-16 mustang catalog and this hood strut kit says it will fit but on the website it says it only fits 05-014 mustangs. I was wondering if it will work on my 16 Mustang.

btburrell12

  • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit w/ Mustang Lettering - Black (05-14 All) will not work with the 15-16 mustangs. We do have hood struts for the 15-16 mustangs however it will not have the mustang lettering. http://www.americanmuscle.com/mmd-black-hoodstrut-2015.html

Question Resolved

Purchased the struts about a 18 months ago. Easy to out on, lots of compliments at car shows and meets. Give it a 5 in all categories. The struts seem to have lost their hydraulic lift. The strut no longer holds the hood. Does AM offer replacement struts without having to purchase the whole set?

  • Unfortunately, Modern Muscle Design does not offer a warranty this far from the date which the kit was acquired.

    Poor Design. Impossible to install

    The hood shocks do not just POP on.. They say you have to remove the pins then install the shocks on the mounts.. then install the pins.... this is contrary to the instructions that came with mine. I have spent $4,000 here and they would not even send me a replacement here until I sent the poorly designed struts back. These are 40 bucks wholesale parts and I have bought 4k in parts retail. Go with the Rousch struts.. the work better, the struts pop on and are actually cheaper......

    Bolt on hood struts

    Easy to install until you get to installing the shocks on the brackets. It's a real pain in the backside! After I finally got them on I had to repaint the end of the shocks because I had worn the paint off trying to get them on. Should be easier than that.

    MMD "Mustang" Strut

    Perfect fitment. Added Instruction for 2010 is very helpful. Put on with hood open and prop rod in place. Once you have everything bolted down, and hydraulic rams on the bottom mount slowly lift hood with your shoulder and pop on rams to upper mount. Perfect product

    Kit installs easily - instructions are not complete for 2013 model

    I just installed the hood lift kit and it looks great (really like the MUSTANG letters cut into the brackets!). The kit does exactly what I wanted it to do.....the hood opens a little wider than with the prop rod and is solidly supported when open. The instructions were decent, but there are a couple of things I would add to them: 1. Have someone available to hold the hood open when connecting the struts. The struts are too long when the hood is supported on the prop rod so it helps to have a second person to hold the hood open for you. The struts are very difficult to compress so it worked best to open the hood wide enough that they just clipped in place. 2. On my 2013 model, the upper bracket interferes with a line running from the fender to the hood. There are 2 attachment points on the hood for this line and one of them is directly under the bracket. I had to remove the line and re-route it, but this was not addressed in the instructions. I ended up re-using the upper attachment point and for the lower one, I pushed the clip into one of the letters cut into the bracket. Not sure if this is recommended, but if I didn't attach the lower clip, it looked like this line might get pinched when closing the hood. Overall a great product!

    This product works really good and looks great.

    I only had one problem with these. The bottom brackets would kick out when I closed the hood and wouldn't set flush with the inside fender no matter how much I tighten the bolt. Quick fix was to switch the bottom brackets (right to left ,left to right side) now the brackets stay nice and flush and don't kick out. The hood seems to open and close better too. I haven't had a problem since. Looks great and NO gap between the fender and brackets.

    It took me less then an hour to place the struts on my vehicle. The struts are sturdy and give a little extra to my car when someone is looking at it. I do recommend this product.

    Product is great. Instructions are terrible. Part numbers on parts do not match instructions. Key steps left out. Overall pretty simple but you have to figure it out on your own.

    Perfect Addition To My Mustang

    These Mustang struts are the perfect addition to my Mustang. I agree, Ford should have installed these right from the factory, instead of the prop pole. The installation for us took a little longer than stated, simply because a few things that were not clear in the instructions. 1. location on the fender is not accurate (maybe just my 2007) 2. No indication in the instructions to remove the pin before installing the strut ball joint 3. I had to use a socket wrench instead of a flat head screw driver to remove the bolts Over all, I am very satisfied with the Hood Struts. They appear to be very good quality and they definitely prop the hood open.

    MMD Bolt on Hood Struts

    Not as easy as you would think to install, but I have them attached to a Cervini Hood. They look killer, but I only question with the bigger hood if a strong wind will collapse the hood on my head. The clearance you get in the hood is great and the mustang logo was a nice touch. I recommend this product,

    great product just one little glitch

    The installation was a breeze and the end product looks great. the only glitch is the windshield washer line on my 2014 Mustang convertible runs right where the passenger side bracket is installed. I moved the line a bit so the bracket could be bolted down but have concerns about that line possibly being pinched. Just got off the phone with your customer service rep who said it shouldn't be a problem and to try using the washer with the hood closed. Will do that as soon as I can. If not for this little problem the above rating would be all 5 stars.

    Great look struts!! Change install instructions

    I am very satisfied with the look and feel of this product!! The only thing I would like to point out is that the install procedures have you take off the wrong bolt from the fenders to have everything line up and the good close. I had to call a technician and he said that they get that call all the time and that the instructions are incorrect!! Please change the instruction so no one else has the same issue!!!!!! Other than that I have no complaints! Great product! I even just got two of my friends to but them because of how they looked on my car!

    A very needed addition. The only reason I couldn't give five stars across the board is that I received instructions for installing rear louvers instead of hood struts. But it was easy enough without instructions.

    Nice replacement for hood strut

    These were a fairly simple install. Make sure you have someone there to help you just to make things go easier. Its a nice change to replace the prop rod. Makes working in the engine bay quite a bit easier as you dont have to maneuver around the prop rod. Plus they look pretty good!

    Hood Strut Kit.

    To whom it may concern, I had my friend Steve help me with installing this kit. A few suggestions on installing the kit. 1. review the instructions and place all the parts on the correct side for installing. 2. mark the inside of the hood above and below the bracket on the inside of the hood. Reason, if the hood shifts during the install, there are reference points to realign the hood. I and my friend Steve had to slightly realign the hood on the passenger side. 3. only unbolt one side only. 4. after the brackets are installed correctly, the brackets on the fenders will turn out slightly.
