Necessary Upgrade. Most Ford Mustang models still include a factory manual hood prop, which can be an eyesore when you want to show off your Mustang’s powerhouse. However, you can upgrade the look of your Mustang by installing a Ford Performance Strut Kit with the Ford Performance logo. This hood strut kit uses two gas struts to perfectly lift and hold your hood open while eliminating the use of your factory prop-rod.

Robust, But Lightweight. Construction of the Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit utilizes lightweight steel and aluminum to guarantee durability and functionality. These robust materials ensure that your hood strut kit serves you for many years.

Durable Powder Coat Finish. This Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is coated with a durable black powder coat finish that's long lasting and will withstand off-road driving hazards. The powder coat finish is also lustrous to boost the aesthetic value of your Mustang vehicle.

Simple Installation. The Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is easy to install. The mounting process does not require any drilling or cutting because the steel brackets fit directly into the OEM mounting holes of your hood.

Specifications. This Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit features dimensions of 6.5" x 4.5" x 14.5". Also, the kit weighs 2.6 lbs and has a 90 lbs rating to hold your hood securely and firmly.

Application. This Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is an ideal fit for all Ford Mustang models made between 2005-2014.

      5 Top Rated Questions

      In the past, some hood strut kits seemed to pull the driver's side lower bracket away from the fender at the front edge of the bracket. Do these Ford struts not cause that? Do they pivot more freely than other brand struts? Do they all pivot on the same size ball? Are they all pretty much the same length? Is it possible that the Ford struts might cure a problem with a Brand X kit? Thanks. Alan P

      • When installing the Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit, you may need to realign the hood to ensure there is a proper fit. In order to install, the bolts need to be taken off the hinges, which can cause the hood to move away from the fender. Make sure you check clearance before completely closing the hood. This is common for most aftermarket hood struts because they install with the hinges. Depending on where they mount, the Ford Performance Hood Struts will be the same size and function the same way other aftermarket hood struts do.

      Will this work with a cervini fiberglass hood? Much lighter than a factory hood.

      • This kit will have a 90lb weight rating and will work with any hoods that are under or equivalent to this weight.

      Will this be strong enough to hold up an aftermarket hood? I Have a Cervinis stalker II hood which is heavier than the stock hood by quite a bit.

      • It is not typically recommended to run the Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit with aftermarket hoods. This kit will have a 90lb weight rating, so can work with any hoods that are under this, however the increased weight will reduce longevity.

      Helpful (1)

      The details say " The gas struts have the ability to hold up to ninety pounds and therefore, Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is strong enough to support both aftermarket hoods and stock hoods. " But someone answered it isn't typically recomended for aftermarket hoods. Will there be an issue using the SpeedForm Split Inlet Ram Air Hood with these struts?

      • So long as this was within 90 lbs these should be sufficient to hold this hood.

      This makes the back of my hood sit high is there any way to fix this?

          Easy Use Engine Compartment

          I like this because it keeps the hood 1 easier to use, but I can definitely see how this would be superior at a car show. I don't go to car shows though(yet?), so it just helps me while working in the engine compartment. The install is easy enough although it seems to squish the windshield washer fluid tube and some plastic parts of the car are in the way, so you need to move/cut those. One thing I noticed is that the hood opens slightly less than without the struts.

          Hood Struts

          Was curious about this item because there were no reviews on this product for 11-14 Mustang GT. Only S550 ones. But install was easy, and fitment was great. I have an aftermarket cervini MACH 1 hood and there were no issues on it holding it up at all because I tested the hood struts by leaving my hood propped open for a week straight in my garage. Nice item and has warranty as well.

          Function as it should looks good but it is not a perfect fit. You will have modify a small part and the hood does not close uniformly but if you are OCD you will notice

          Does what it’s supposed to, easy install

          Install is idiot proof, even though the instructions from ford have terrible pictures. Be advised, this kit will slightly raise the rear of the hood because the new brackets go behind the old hinges. Also it is a good idea to go ahead and get rid of the sound tube so you don’t have to relocate it.

          Make American muscle great again!

          Before I even start this review I want to say this. Can we please get semi decent photos for our instructions? We pay premium for most of the stuff you sell on this site and our instructions look like they were printed back from the 80’s...what’s worse is those same pictures are online. Originally I was going to give this three stars but as I was going to write this review I noticed the pictures on this site and my brackets. My brackets came labeled wrong, the passenger is labeled “D” and driver side has a “P” on it. That may or may not be the solution to my other problem. The hood doesn’t sit flush with these installed. The hood will sit about 1/4 to 1/2 inch above the fender towards the hinges. I also broke a bolt head in the process torquing it down to their specs but that’s not really the products fault. Overall they seem to be made with quality material but the guy (or probably a machine) labeling these is something else and they seem more complicated then the product needs to be. Just be aware it could be a simple install or it could be a pain...also look at your labels because apparently they’re switching them up.
