    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.

    4 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.

    Does the price reflect as a set meaning both sides or is it per side.

    • This hood strut kit would include both sides.

      Love them.

      Really nice and simple way to clean up under the hood. Looks like they at supposed to be there. Installation was a breeze. 30 45 min tops. Make sure you have a sharp blade to trim some of the plastic.

      Dosn't fit proper

      The kit has a lower height than the prop rod and when trying to close the hood all the way down it takes alot of effort. Not because of the struts but the hood is not aligned proper and i need to shove the sides down after i finally get it closed

      Does the trick

      If you hate that prop rod for holding your hood up, then you need a pair of these hood struts.

      Not a good option

      Tried these out just to find out that they lifted the hood when closed leaving a large gap. Poor design. Returning them.

      Excellent product

      I purchased these as a replacement for my existing struts, which were failing after only a few years. I was immediately impressed with the quality of these struts. They seem to have better holding capability than my previous set. I highly recommend them.

      Look Great!

      After trimming and arranging the fit they look nice. I would say though the engineering was not done very well. The fit could be better. Also, in order to have the Ford Performance Logo showing I had to purchase a nylon washer to spin the piston to face out yet be snug.

      So Nice to not have to use the prop rod!

      Using these during Car Shows is so nice not having to worry about someone hitting the hood support and bending the hood. Well worth the cost for the quality of item received.

      works well but poor fitment

      the bottom brackets need to be forcefully wedged between the frame and the plastic trim which makes the installation process somewhat tedious. seems like a huge oversight for something designed by ford.

      Love these struts. Fit well with a bit of trimming here and there. If you want a clean oem look these are the struts to get.
