    Review & Install Video

    The Ford Performance hood strut kit with the logo is available for any '05 to '14 Mustang owner who might be looking to get rid of the ugly and in the way factory hood prop, and replace it with something more modern, convenient, and out of the way. This one shows some Ford Performance pride with their logo engraved in silver over a black strut, and the price is generously placed at about $100 per set, which you see here with me. The installation is a direct bolt-on. So expect one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, which I'll walk you through later on in the video. If you're the type of Mustang owner taking your pony to a lot of car shows, and you're trying to show off some underhood dress-up pieces in your engine bay, then the factory hood prop can be an ugly way to display them. These are a great alternative, because they stay out of the way in the bottom corners of the hood, and they even blend in with the black powder coating. They reliably keep the hood open, and they lock into place so you don't have to worry about the weight of the hood bringing them down. Aside from the looks, these are just all-around more convenient. Leaning over the front end to do even just routine maintenance can be tough with the hood prop in the way. These make it easier to do the work without having to lean over the fenders awkwardly when the front is where you want to be. This set has two powerful gas struts, which are made from a lightweight steel and aluminum with a black powder-coated finish all around, and the Ford oval logo and the Ford Performance logo laser-engraved on top in silver. The black not only gives it a sleek look to blend in, but it also adds a layer of corrosion and rust resistance, which is always a bonus. For just about $100, you can pick this up for yourself, which again is the most affordable option in my opinion. It makes things a lot easier. There are other options varying with price tags, depending on finish, such as modern billets, chrome, carbon fiber, and one with Mustang lettering. But they also have the same function and it all is a matter of preference. The installation only takes about 30 minutes to an hour with simple hand tools, like a flathead screwdriver, a ratchet, 10-millimeter and 13-millimeter sockets, and some extensions.I'd absolutely give this one, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, since it doesn't require any drilling or permanent modifications. The first thing you want to do is install one of the lower brackets using the factory fender bolt. With the hood supported by the factory prop, remove the top bolt on the hood hinge and loosen the rear one just enough to slide the larger bracket labeled "P" between the hood hinge and the bolt. Then, tighten these bolts back up to secure the bracket. Remove the small retaining clips from the strut balls, and then pop the strut balls over the strut mounts in the brackets. Replace the retaining clips to keep the balls locked into place. Then, once you repeat this for the opposite side with the bracket labeled "D" for "Driver," then you're good to go. So if you're the owner of an '05 to '09 Mustang, you might want to check out the Ford Performance hood strut kit with the Ford Performance logo, which is available right here, of course, at americanmuscle.com.

    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.

    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.

      What Ford should have done

      These are good quality parts with a remarkably quick install. They are also, as stated above, what Ford should have done in the first place. For me and a friend casually working, it took us about 45 minutes to put these on, and they are just one of those little touches that makes more sense on a new car. I would highly recommend them.

      Don't even bother to remove hood bracket bolts unless you have a second set of hands to hold onto the hood. Certainly not a one man job !!!

      Best hood struts

      Bought the Ford Performance hood struts after the MMD ones I had failed after 3 years. These are of much better quality, Easy to install. Look good. They also come with a warranty which the other brand didn't.

      Bad product

      awful fitment, tried to install several different times and fix the fitment issue by modifying things and still had hood unaligned with body of car. Will not buy again, go look at redline hood struts, great products.

      Hood struts

      Just installed the hood struts, it took about thirty minutes, but heard bad stories about how long they will last, some say a year and other reviews claim two years, now I can find out myself.

      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
