Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m here with a very popular product here on the site, and a must have for any SN95. I’m talking about MMD’s bolt on hood strut kit, for all 94-98 Mustangs, available in your choice of either blue, black, or chrome. MMD is an industry leading appearance brand, that has caught the attention of many Mustang owners out there, thanks to their cool and innovative parts for Mustangs of all ages. So what do they do? Well for one thing they completely eliminate the ugly factory prop rod, by using these two gas powered struts to hold the hood open, In addition they also make raising the hood a lot easier as well, which isn’t the biggest deal in the world, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. As I mentioned earlier the kit is available in a black powder coated finish which we have installed on our 98 GT behind me, or a bright chrome finish, like I have here. Included in the package you’ll find both gas powered struts, along with the 4 necessary mounting brackets. This 100% bolt on kit installs easily in about an hour’s time and requires no drilling whatsoever. In fact, both the upper and lower mounting brackets install using the existing factory bolt locations. When you’ve finished up the installation, don’t forget to remove that factory prop rod, since you won’t be needing it anymore. Chances are when you pop the hood 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 doing some work, and you don’t want some ugly piece of metal to be front and center when you’re showing off some new cold air intake. Do yourself and your engine bay a favor, and check out one of these MMD bolt on hood strut kits right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your SN95 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 chrome and nickel plated 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 1994 to 1998 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, and SVT Cobra models. The Kit includes two chrome gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

      Will these work for trunk struts on my '96 Mustang ? The existing struts are worn out. David

      • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit is designed for the length and weight of the hood, and would not be a direct fit for the trunk.

          96 Cobra hood struts

          They work good look great but did have to do a little bit of grinding on the top hood strut bracket to make them fit flush for better support on the hood

          Really helpful and cool

          This product was shiny out of the box and has a great purpose. It took maybe 15 minutes to install and now I don't need to use the prop rod anymore! It's such a nice feeling to have the hood open on its own! I would say to be careful when you pull it down at first. I did have to adjust mine slightly the first time I closed it so it would be nice and flush. Directions mention this so read them and you'll be fine. Recommend to anyone who opens their hood! Lol

          Works, but have rust on it within a week

          Install was easy with the aftermarket hood, but the pins that hold in the shocks to the unit started to rust within a couple of days.

          Great product, easy installation. Added two washers at the stepped portion of the fender for level fit. No biggie. I was concerned about hood miss-alignment when loosening the hood bolts. No movement, no problem. Everything worked out great.

          It was a very simple install and a great look for your Mustang. Just be aware that the fender bolts will most likely come loose and you will need replacement clips installed so have some ready.

          Hood up with ease!

          For my '98 stock GT this was a much welcome item. It just made sense and I don't know why Ford didn't install hood gas struts. Mine is a project car but the factory hood prop just said "import" plus the darn thing got in the way when maneuvering around the engine bay. Worth every dollar and am recommending this system to my Mustang buddies.
