    Hey everyone it’s Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and are you giving your engine way the props it deserves? Not that kind of props, I mean are you still using that dated hood prop to show off what’s under the hood of your ride? If so get with the times and check out this bolt on hood strut kit for your 99-04 V6 and GT Mustang. This 100% bolt on kit requires no modification or drilling unlike other kits, and is available in chrome or factory finish black. In addition to cleaning up your bay it also makes opening the hood a lot easier which is always nice. The kit includes 2 gas powered struts, and also the upper and lower mounting brackets. Install is very easy, both mounting brackets utilize the factory bolt locations, the best part is you don’t even have to take your hood off to install this kit. Install should take you about an hour. It is worth mentioning that this kit might work with aftermarket fiberglass cowl induction hoods or even carbon fiber hoods, as long as both of those options use factory bolt locations. Now if you decide to use one of the lighter options be careful when opening the hood, as these powerful struts are designed to open the heavy factory hood. Chances are when you pop the hood of your Mustang it’s either to show off what you’ve done, or to turn a wrench or two. You don’t want the hood prop in the way when you’re going to work on your motor, and you don’t want some ugly piece of metal front and center when you go to talk about that new blower. Do yourself a favor, kill two birds with one stone, and check out this hood prop kit.

    Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your New Edge Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of Modern Muscle Design Mustang 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 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 1999 to 2004 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models. The Kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

        Will these work with aftermarket hoods? I have a 2001 V6, and i purchased a hood from your website. Will this work on my hood?

        • Absolutely, as long as it uses the factory bolt locations. The hoods we carry utilize the OEM latch and hinges and you shouldn't have any issues installing them on your aftermarket hood. Just keep in mind that if your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, be careful when opening it due to the power of these struts!

        What about replacement gas shocks? When one goes bad, how hard is it going to be to find a new one. I can't seem to get any specs on the cylinder itself. I would like an answer to this question as well please.

        My hood seems hard to shut completely and there is a bow in it right about where the shocks are, it seems they dont have enough room between the hood and inner fender when closed, and I have made sure the bolts are completely tight. any suggestions? is it possibly a defect? both sides are like this 1 answer

            Awesome Product!

            Awesome product!! Fits great, easy install. Much better than flimsy prop rod and makes it much easier to work under the hood.

            No more ugly prop rod!

            Easy install. Just take your time and following the markings for each side. Also you can screw the ends off of the rods to help get things lined up. The lifts have plenty of power to lift the hood and hold it steady once it's up.

            instructions are flawed

            Do not remove the front 10 mm hinge nut before loosening the back nut. If you do, the weight of the hood rests on the back nut, and you're never going to get that 1/4" gap. Instead, loosen the back nut enough to slide the slot in the upper bracket in between the hinge and the nut. Re-tighten just enough to hold the upper bracket in place. Then remove the front nut and slide the bracket over the bolt. Also, you don't just "pop the ends of the strut over the ball mounts." You must remove the retaining clips first. Once installed, works great.

            Great Add!

            Item was easy to install once I realized I had to remove the pins on the top of the struts to fit over the ball. Very strong struts, supports the hood well.

            The install went fairly well, only about 20 mins. The instructions looked like they were a photo copy of the original and they were poor quality . The photos were so dark you could not see what was going on. All said and done they look great an works great.

            looks great, lifts hood with ease. instruction paper pictures could be a little clearer, and don't forget to oil bolts on hood before loosening nuts.

            MMD bolt on hood strut kit.

            I found it easier to install if you unscrew the one end piece of the strut and attach it to the ball which was installed on the side of the fender. Then screw the strut back onto the end piece attached to the inside of the fender. Then attach the top piece of the strut onto the ball which was attached to the hood. Made installation so much easier. Total time to attach both struts about 20 minutes. Struts perform as intended and looks good as well.

            REally poor directions

            Product looks OK so far but directions SUCK and are so dark that u can’t see th picture. Shame on AM for shipping this with poor instructions. Ball socket can not be placed on ball unless u first remove a very tiny lock spring(easy to loose) Not what the instructions say. Should ship a spare spring as u are very likely to loose one.
