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.

Why doesn't the hood strut kit hood my hood up ? Does the weather have anything to do with it? Please let me know. I will have to put the prop back in.
Hey there! Sorry to hear that you are having a problem with your hood struts. To further assist you, please give us a call or email us! americanmuscle.com/contact.html
Will this set hold up the Cervini Type IV Ram Air Hood, MPN 1187
this hood strut kit will be able to support the weight of the 71 pound Cervini Ram Air Type IV hood.
Will this work with the black mamba II forced air induction hood?
As long as the Black Mamba2 hood uses the factory hood mounting points the struts can be used.
I have a 2007 GT500 and tried the Ford Performance struts and there was a slight bow by the strut. Will this cause any bow.
These MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit will fit an 2007 GT500 and will not bow as long as the panels are true.
will this strut kit work under the hood of a 2013 Shelby gt500 ?
Yes, these hood struts fit all 05-14 models.
The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Chrome (05-14 All) will be able to work on factory and aftermarket hoods. However, if your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, use caution when opening the hood due to the power of the strut.
I would personally recommend using the bottom bracket that comes with it as well as the top bracket that way the product works as designed. Not to mention you can get the whole kit for under a 100

MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Chrome (05-14 All)
These were very easy to install, I did it by myself in about 40 minutes. I would like them to be a little stronger though.

I purchased this kit to improve the aesthetics of the engine compartment. The factory option takes away from the view of the heart of the GT500. This is a much cleaner look and I highly recommend this easy mod

Struts didn't last
OK, so you can probably see that these are not really shiny chrome but I had higher hopes. Really they are more of a burnished aluminum look rather than chrome! Moreover, after approximately a year the hydraulic strut or struts got weak and barely hold the hood up! If the car is slightly down hill the hood falls. I wouldn't buy them again, and check the warranty if you do like some AM parts there isn't one for long.

Sharp looking but make sure you put it on right read the instructions.

Love these struts, the mechanical stuff works great. 6 months later though, and I'm getting rust spots on the tubes. I live in cali so it's not like it's even particularly moist around here... smh

Really makes underneath the head stand out it adds to all the Chrome I have underneath the hood now I give it a five-star

Hood Sttrut Upgrade
The MMD hood strut is a great upgrade to the common outdated hood stick that Ford uses on Mustangs. It is an easy installation takes about an hour to complete. The chrome strut really dresses up the first impression of the car as you look under the hood and engine compartment.

A Better Hoob
These was very easy to install and added safety to hood when checking the fluids under the hood. I reccomed this for every Pony that is still using the factory prop rod.

Product was easy to install. Quality is sub-par. Have a problem with one of the brackets staying in its place. Tends to slide away from side of car no matter how tight you make it. I had to put a lock washer between the body and the bracket to hold it in place.

I like them.
These are great, they function well and they look very nice. Having a 2007 the only tool I used was a 10 mil socket. Install was very quick. The reason there's not five stars is because the driver side strut seems to max out first and the passenger side strut makes a soft scraping noise (maybe a lubrication issue?). Neither of those things affect the functionality of the struts. Also, if you don't hold the hood while opening it, the struts want pop out so make sure not to let them take all the stress when y'all open your hood.

Relief at last
Easy install, good directions. No more prop rod in the way.

Bolt on Hood strut kit
Great product simple to install if you have any mods like stainless Steel fender caps they won't work unless they are removed so be wear of that. Otherwise great product!

Hood push ups
They work fine and are easy to put on, a helper is good to hold hood in place.

HOOD STRUT KIT
DID NOT HOLD UP THE HOOD,SO HOOD KEPT ON FALLING DOWN WHENEVER YOU TOUCHED IT.
June 14, 2018
Functional and Looks Good
Love the chrome accents these add under the hood of my black Mustang. They are also very functional and makes working under the hood a lot easier without the prop getting in the way.

The bottom mounts keep turning on the fender bolt... needs adjusting a lot.

Does not work
I purchased this kit to work with a Cervani Type 4 hood. It could not support the weight. I called AM and Frank was a major help with returning and getting replacement struts for my hood. Thank you Frank and AM for your excellent customer support. Truly appreciated.

Once installed, they look great. Even though there is only a few steps, a couple of the instructions was a little confusing/not clear.
