Sleek, Clean Look. Show off the engine of your Ford Mustang in style with the Ford Performance Strut Kit with Ford Performance logo. The logo is laser etched on the two gas struts. Ford designed this hood strut kit to have a sleek, clean look. You can lift your hood with ease as the two gas struts take over. You no longer need to worry about injuring yourself when the hood of your car is open.

Lightweight, Yet Strong. The components in this kit are made with lightweight steel and aluminum to ensure functionality and durability. They are coated with a heavy-duty black powder finish. The brackets are made from strong steel.

Specifications. The dimensions of this kit are 6.5" x 4.5" x 14.5" and it weighs 2.6 lbs. It has a rating of 90 lbs.

Basic Installation. You will love how easy it is to install this strut kit. The direct bolt-on installation does not require any drilling. You won't have to drill since the steel brackets have been engineered to bolt directly into the existing OEM hood mount holes.

Application. The Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit with Ford Performance Logo fits all 2005-2014 Ford Mustang models.

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.

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

    Not bad

    It is a little hard to center the hood back again, and they Are way too strong, so the hood bounces when opens. Like because gives me more space and i dont have to worry about securing with the prop

    Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit

    Install is pretty straight forward. Don't loosen both bolts on the hood hinge as much as in the instructions. Do the rear one first, keeping the front bolt fairly tight. slide the strut under the rear bolt, tighten it fairly tight, but not so much the strut can't move. Then remove the front hinge bolt. Rotate the strut over the front bolt hole, replace the bolt, and tighten both front and rear bolts to specs. KEEP THE FRONT OF THE HOOD SUPPORTED AT ALL TIMES, EVEN WITH SOMEONE HELPING. Only complaint is that the hood doesn't open as far as with the prop rod, which is inconvenient if you work under there very often.

    easy upgrade

    This is a must have if u like to shoe off your engine bay or even work under the hood alot. Now you can do whatever engine maintenance you need to without the prop getting in the way. This is a very easy install took me about ten minutes to do both sides with a rachet and 10mm deep and shallow socket. I did have to adjuat the the hood bump stops and some trimming to my brake master covers. I still have my hood prop installed and may keep on this I have the chrome hood prop so it looks good there for now. I might remove before the 2017 AM show this year

    Hood lift

    After struggling to install due to housing that needed forcing out of lower brackets of the way disappointed in the way the hood is able to rock on the upper brackets since it cant be flush mounted.

    My hood does not close properly

    I have followed the instructions and even watched video's from other manufacturers for proper instructions. When I close my hood there is a slight bulge where the strut kit is on both sides of the hood. I plan to take them off and hopefully I can still return them.

    Something to know

    With the addition of the struts mounts. It raised the back of the hood up so now the hood is not flush. Also closing the hood requires a little more of a push to get it to close. Product works nice but wanted to share so you will know what to expect.

    hood strut ease

    Easy to install this product, on my 06 the time consumer for me was trimming the plastic around the fender mount. I think a rotary tool perhaps would be the best tool for the trimming.

    Looks function

    I am giving these struts 4 stars for value simply because you can buy basically the same struts for roughly $10.00 less if you buy the plain black ones. In the end the Ford Performance logo was worth the extra $10.00 to me for the nicer appearance. Four stars for fit because while they fit on the car just fine they don't raise the hood quite as far as the prop rod does. It would also be helpful if the instructions made it clear that the attachment point [ cup ] on the body of the rod can be turned, not just the rod end. The cup on the body of the strut is screwed on pretty tight from the factory and you have to use a fair amount of force to break it loose the first time. Once you figure this out installation is quick and easy. The rod end turns easily. Five stars for appearance. The struts themselves are sharp looking and the black power coating looks sharp on my Ingot Silver car. The factory prop rod is certainly functional enough, but it looks pretty cheap and detracts from the otherwise stylish looks of the car. The struts look like they should have been there from the start.
