    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 2015-2019 V6, GT and EcoBoost Mustangs.

    I mounted mine and it seems to have made the hood not line up like it used to without the struts. Is there a way that can be adjusted? If I had the dealer install it would they be able to make sure the hood is lined up?

      Hood strut review

      Can’t recommend these Ford performance hood struts even though they look good and hold the hood up. They don’t have enough power to lift the hood on there own you have to help them and then push the hood to the top position. Then they will hold there. I have had several cars with hood struts that worked much better than these. Buy the better ones that are more expensive.

      FP hood strut review

      Everything in instructions are good. The only thing I would change is use a 1 1\2 inch hole cutter instead of the recommend 1 inch it has a lot better fit.

      Hood strut kit

      This won’t fit uk spec 2018 ecoboost, my 2018 ecoboost got an extra layer of metal next to the stud on the hood where the barrack is installed. Maybe there’s another way to install it is to drill another hole on the barrack that goes on the hood but that’s too much work for me.

      One Year Review

      I thought this is the kind of product that should be on a car for a while before reviewing. I purchased/installed back in Dec 2017 on a brand new 2018 GT. The install was pretty simple. I did it around midnight in cold weather in about 30 minutes. The only installation issue was the hole they tell you to put in the battery cover is too small for it to sit flush. Opening it up to 1 1/2 inches made it perfect. Unfortunately, over time, I noticed 3 issues: 1. Windshield washer fluid hole was partially crushed (this was easily fixed with a heat gun to help put the hose back into shape and repositioning the hose a little to the right.) 2. The end connected to the frame is touching a spot on the bottom of the hood when closed. This caused some rubbing off of paint. I "fixed" this with some touch-up paint/clearcoat and by putting some all-weather permanent tape on that spot. 3. The struts just don't have the power to push the hood up. However, it holds it up just fine when you manually push it all the way, even in a stiff wind. Honestly, my plan was just to use these until there were more options for the 2018 and I've just purchased a different brand to replace these. There are just too many negatives to recommend them. To be fair, they actually do work as far as allowing you to toss the annoying prop rod and they certainly look nice under the hood.

      Works ok..

      The fit and finish are top notch but the shocks simply don't have enough pressure to push the hood up. I have to assist the lift. It will stay lifted once pushed to the fully open position.

      it only took me about 45 minutes to install, and they work great, like the ford performance printing on the struts, nice touch to the Stang when the hood is up.
