    Polished and Modern Appearance. Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is designed to give your Mustang that much-desired smooth, polished, and modern appearance. This is accentuated by the Ford Performance logo which is laser etched on the kit’s dual gas struts.

    Unbeatable Performance. The presence of the two gas struts makes it easy for you to lift your ride’s hood without worrying about it being brought down by wind. 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.

    Lightweight Yet Durable Construction. Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is manufactured from lightweight but strong steel and aluminum. This guarantees durability and functionality. In addition, it features an industrial grade black powder coat finish to prevent rust and corrosion. Its brackets are also manufactured from high quality steel to offer reliable support.

    Easy Installation. Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is installed via a straightforward bolt-on process that doesn’t require any drilling or modifications. Its strong steel brackets are designed to bolt directly to your Mustang’s OEM hood mounts. Basic tools are needed while the entire process lasts approximately thirty minutes.

    Warranty. The product is backed by a one-year warranty against mechanical and structural defects.

    Application. Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit with Ford Performance Logo fits all 2010 to 2014 V6, GT, GT500 and BOSS 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.

      They look and function perfectly, but they raise your hood above your front fender so it makes it look awkward. Not sure how I feel About this yet...

      Bent my hood

      I don’t know what the issue was but I put these on per the instructions and the one side was so hard to close that it tweaked my hood. I checked and double checked everything and everything was installed correctly but it does not work correctly. Going back

      Glad you made s design change in the kit

      Thank you for making a design change in the hood strut mtg part. I’ve had two orders from American Muscle for which the chrome failed in the first year 2nd order the black pistons failed in 1 1/2 years finally there has been s design change and Insttuctions are being sent. So we will see how they function and reliability is on a 2012 mustang with 30,000 Miles. Wish me luck! Fast shipping I appreciate that

      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 !!!
