    Features & Details

    • Laser-Engraved Ford Performance Logo
    • Durable Black Finish
    • Works with Stock and Aftermarket Hoods
    • Lightweight Steel and Aluminum
    • Two Gas Struts Rated at 90 Pounds
    • Easy Bolt-On Installation
    • Fits 2015-2018 GT, EcoBoost and V6 Mustangs
    Keep Your Hood Open Wide. Keep your S550 Mustang’s hood open wide to show your engine bay at car shows with this Hood Strut Kit featuring the Ford Performance logo. The manual hood strut that came from the factory won’t make the grade when you need to lift your hood to do some work on the engine. Replace that old prop with two gas struts that lift your hood and let you see what you are doing.

    Work Safely. There’s no need to worry about the hood crashing down because you bumped a manual prop. These lightweight steel and aluminum struts use leverage to open and close hoods up to 90 pounds with the touch of a finger.

    Easy Installation. Installing the Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit is simple with the included installation hardware. Installation should take about 30 minutes and involves a simple bolt-on process.

    Caution: If you replace your OEM hood with a lighter aftermarket hood, be watchful. These powerful struts may open your hood faster than you expect.

    Application. Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit with Ford Performance Logo fits 2015-2018 V6, GT and EcoBoost Mustangs.

      Big improvement over kickstand

      Always my first addition, can't stand the "kickstand" rod in the front.

      Good quality

      Easy install, holds the hood open... Looks good... One thing though, on the instructions that I had it said to use a 13mm socket for the hood nuts... Mine were 10mm...

      BUY THESE AND FORGET THE REST

      I originally bought the cheapest option, the MMD hood struts for my car which turned out to be a mistake. Spend the little extra and you won't regret it. These look and function amazingly!

      Ford Percormance hood struts are the ticket.

      Can’t believe that my 50k dollar Mustang Premium GT came with a hood prop!! Now thanks to this kit the hood prop is now a trot-line sinker. This kit ultra easy install, even I did it with no real help

      Looks great but fitting issue with hose

      The product itself is great. It fits very well on mustang gt 18 However the windshield water hose is on the way and gets compress by the strut base.

      Honestly not sure why Ford doesn't included these in all there new Mustang builds. They are a quick and easy mod to do with minimal effort. Look great!

      Unhappy with Ford Performance Hood Struts

      I've always used RedLine Tuning struts on my mustangs but decided to try the Ford Performance struts. They look nice but after installing I noticed the bottom bracket passenger side turning slightly. I never had this issue with the RedLines. About 3rd lift of the hood and the bottom of the strut popped off the bracket. I reattached it but the drivers bracket side started. I called AM purchased the RedLine Tuning set and they sent me a return label for the Ford Performance set. Great customer service experience with AM I will use them for my purchases when ever possible.

      Ford Performance Hood Struts 3/4 There

      I put this kit on last week. The installation took 25 minutes, but only after reading and examining the lousy pictures for 15 minutes. My biggest problem with this kit, other than the lousy pictures and horrible template (I don't know maybe it's me), is having to drill a hole through the battery cover for the passenger side hood strut bracket. Now, do I recommend this product? Sure, just know you will have to drill a hole through the battery cover.

      Best upgrade you can do to your mustang. This should have come from the factor already done.

      Works and fits gret

      Easy to install and works great. However, the instructions are the weak link. The pictures and explanation of steps could be improved to show and describe the install better. Also, I had to reroute the windshield washer hose because when I closed the hood it is mashed it completely flat and would not let any fluid through. A little note about that possibility would have saved a lot time and aggravation later.
