    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?

    MarcusW

    • 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!

    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

    • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit should not cause these issues. Please contact our Customer Service department so we may assist you in correcting this.

    Do these clear up some working room when working in the rear of the engine? The factory setup makes working back there tight without removing the hood, do these help clear space?

    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.

    I installed these struts on my 03 GT a few years ago and since then the back end of the hood doesn't sit flush with the top of the fender. It's not that big of deal but any idea how to make it sit flush again?

    rivas8409

    • You can try taking the brackets for the hood struts off and re-installing them. They may have gotten loose over time and shifted.

      Super easy install

      Definitely recommend this kit, much better than the factory hood prop. Allows for one handed opening and closing of the hood, and the prop is no longer in the way when working in the engine bay.

      Works Great!

      I needed to replace the worn out set of struts on my '03 Mach and these fit the bill nicely. As I was replacing a set, installation was even easier. And now I don't need to keep a small Vice grip handy to clamp on a strut to hold the hood open!

      Why did I wait so long ?

      After an easy install (watched the Vid on YouTube !) I really had to ask myself why I waited so long to get some of these. No more goofy prop rod always in the way ,the hood opens as high as stock, no more worrying about the wind lifting the hood up at Shows and the hood slamming down after the prop rods falls over as a result ,I attend Shows right on the beach here in Fla., and believe me this does happen with the wind coming in off the water. Wish I had gotten these ages ago, now i know and won't own a car they are available for that hasn't got them added.

      Hood Strut Kit

      Got this for Christmas (wish list), and installed it when the weather allowed. Does a great job of lifting/holding the hood up, but I still add the rod if the wind is blowing really hard (Oklahoma). The only down side, and it's minor, is that gone are the days when you could just turn loose of your hood and it would close; you actually have to encourage it to latch. There's a trick; most will figure out.

      looks good, functions even better

      When I took the nut off the driver side, it sheared off flush with the hood, so I had to tap a new stud. That did not affect the performance of this item though!

      Easy to install, they did not require any modifications as stated. It's great to get rid of the flimsy hood support rod. I would recommend the hood strut kit to everyone interested in safer method of supporting their hood.
