    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?

      Looks Good! Careful with washer hose!

      Installing these were a breeze. Like others have said, the instructions aren’t so great. Mine like others with 2018’s crushed my windshield washer hose! Can anybody recommend how to repair it? Other than that, they look great!

      Should have been included from the factory..

      This was an easy install, and it gets rid of the stupid hood prop. Well worth the money. Ford should have included this off the line.

      Prop rods

      I had a set for some of my previous cars. This is the first one I've had to cut things in my engine to install. I'm not cutting anything to install. This type of modification should be a quick 10-minute install with no cutting. I'd like to send them back since they are just sitting in my garage. I wouldn't recommend this item, just use the stock prop rod..

      Fits good, easy to install, a much needed improvement over the stock pole they put in from factory on a nearly 50k car, Ford ain't right

      Hood struts

      They seem to be of good quality but they are not as strong As stated by review of the seller.But I think they are worth the price paid for the struts.

      Hassle free hood open and close

      Very easy and quick install. Very good quaility and now opening and closing the hoods hassle free.They also look great. Photo quality of instructions was very poor but hands down simple to install. Price was great for the function and quality of the product.

      ford perf struts

      everything fits and looks great. I put the cyclinder end down rather than up as in the instructions and put a washer as a spacer under the socket to ball connector so that the ford perf logo would show from the side of the car.

      Some modification of the battery cover required.

      Not to mention, make sure that once installed that the strut above the battery does not crush the windshield wiper fluid line. I think the struts work fine and look good.

      Not exactly happy

      After receiving this strut kit and reading the instructions, i decided not to try and install it myself. Instead I took my mustang along with the strut kit to my local Ford dealer, where I was told that from the instructions and template provided that liability policies prevented them from even attempting to do an installation. So, I was stuck with having to do the installation myself. Trying to use the template was futile, totally inaccurate, so I ended up drilling and cutting and mutilating a portion of my battery cover. The left side installed okay, but when I got to the driver’s side installation, the hardware, specifically the lower mount could not be properly secured and ended up slipping. I have had to use it this way, despite the inability to properly secure the lower mount. I’m not sure how long this will last! The strut functions okay, but I am very disappointed in the quality of hardware provided, and the useless template!

      Great simple upgrade

      Easy install, especially if you watch installation videos online. This does come with printed instructions that include black and white photos. I'm so glad I got these before doing any other mods. They make things so much easier. Ford should have put these on every Mustang from the factory, but thankfully American Muscle has the best price and shipping on this brand of hood struts!
