    Review & Installation Video

    Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and are you giving your engine the props it deserves, not that kind of props, I mean are you still using that dated hood prop to show off the engine bay in your ride? If so you will definitely want to check out this MMD bolt on hood strut kit fitting all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. MMD has quickly become the industry leader in unique aftermarket parts that help make your Mustang look a lot cooler, this kit is one of those items. This 100% bolt on kit requires no drilling or modification like some other kits and is available in your choice of either show stopping chrome finish or a factory black finish. Now besides dramatically cleaning up your engine bay, it also makes raising the hood a lot easier as well. The kit includes 2 gas powered struts, both upper and lower mounting brackets, and all the required hardware. Getting the kit installed should only take you about an hour thanks to the fact that both brackets utilize your factory bolt locations. It is worth mentioning that this kit will also work with aftermarket fiberglass cal induction hoods or even carbon fiber hoods as long as both of those options utilize the factory bolt locations. Chances are when you pop the hood of your ride it’s either to show off what you’ve done or to turn a wrench or two, you don’t want that hood prop in the way when you’re working on your motor and you don’t want some ugly piece of metal front and center when you are showing off that new blower. Do yourself and your engine bay a favor and check out this bolt on hood strut kit by MMD.

    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 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 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 Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is specifically 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.

        Mounting require hood removal? With bolt on install, can you leave hood in place with prop rod & install one side at a time or is this a 2 man job with hood removal? Thanx

        • You can do it by yourself, I did, however it would be easier if you had another set of hands. just follow the instructions and do not fully remove the bolts holding the hood, remove the front bolt and then loosen the back bolt. You will have to push the hood away from the factory bracket to get the hood strut bracket sandwiched in between, then tighten the bolt and then then reinstall the front bolt. The one thing that happened on both sides is the bolts on the fender appeared to strip as they could not be tightened fully but they do hold and I have not had a problem with them. Good luck and one of the better mods I made as no prop rod to get in the way.

        Are there replacement struts? After just a couple of years they struts that came with this kit will no longer hold up my hood. Are the struts Vehicle specific?

        • Unfortunately there is no warranty on these hood struts so the only way to get a replacement would be to buy another pair, although it never hurts to call in and speak with a customer service representative to see if there is anything they can do. And yes, these struts are specifically designed for 05-14 Mustangs.

        Strength? Are these strong enough to hold up a fiberglass hood? My hood is heavy and the Drake struts are not able to hold..

        • I have a Tru-Fiber hood on my '11 and these struts work wonderful. I don't think you will have any problems.

            Potential to be Nice, but will not last

            I bought this about three years ago, and now I was browsing again, to see if the product options improved or a new shock is available. Mine didn't last a year, and now they are just installed there for nothing. I wonder if any of the 5 star reviews were made after the product was really tested

            Didn't last very long

            After a year of having them the struts gave out. They no longer held the hood up. I would have thought they'd last a lot longer.

            Defective, then replacement did not fit

            I keep getting emails about wanting me to review. I have ignored 3 emails, but finally said, you want it, you got it. Unfortunately, the first kit was defective. AM was very responsive and had the new kit to me 2 days later. Sadly, this one did not fit at all. First there were a couple aspects of the instructions missing, such as removing the pins in the socket to allow the ball to insert. However, the angle of the entry point was not flexible enough to get the ball and socket to mate. I wasted 4-5 hours trying to make the 2 different kits to work. Nothing against support, they were responsive and even offered a 3rd try. Nahh, I know when to cut bait and run. I switch to a Redline set which installed in under 10 minutes for both struts! Big difference in design.

            No más Prop Rod!

            This should have been the first mod to my stang. It opens up the area under the hood so much. I do recommend that you have a helper hold the hood while installing the brackets and lift supports. The hood will move whether you want it to or not. Also make sure not to drop any of the hood bolts into any open holes in the body of the car. Install was overall pretty easy aside from my luck.

            Not real happy

            I was happy to install these and have the hood standing on its own. They worked great for about 6 months and then would no longer hold the hood. They have been removed and thrown away

            I installed the "Bolt On Hood Strut Kit" in approximately one hour with no problem what so ever. It was easy and trouble free with no drilling and only a couple of tools. It works great and I'm glad I don't have to use that antiquated hood rod. Thank you MMD. William A.

            Fits Great But The Struts Don't Last!

            The cars driven 3000 miles a year on average and we just don't need to open the hood more than ten times a year at the most. The struts lasted just over three years before failing to hold the hood up. Pros: fit well, look factory and do a nice job when new. Cons: struts just don't last.

            hood strut kit

            This is the poorest design I have ever dealt with. Had no problem installing on our 11 GT but the struts for our 07 Shelby GT500 sucked!! Did not fit, could not get the socket on the ball of each strut. Had to turn bracket to make it work, now a 1/2 gap on lower fender bracket. Noisy when we open or close. Would not recommend this product for older vehicle at all!

            Terrible Product

            I spent several hours over the weekend trying to get these to work on my 13' gt. First off, the balls are nearly impossible to get into the socket. Secondly, once I resolved problem one and mounted to my hood, they would not clear the fenders. They are too large/wide to allow me to close my hood. Terrible design. 1 star all around, definitely not happy with this product.
