    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.

    Ask a Question

    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.

      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

      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.

      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.

      Hood Strut Kit.

      Looks Great and easy to install in no time. Prefer these over the prop rod. Only reason for the 4 star on fit is the bracket on the hood rubs slightly on the inner fender when closed. I would recommend these. My MCA edition is white and black so the black struts with the white Ford logo match well.
