    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 prop rod 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.

    Application. Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit with Ford Performance Logo fits 2015-2020 V6, GT and EcoBoost Mustangs.

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

        Do the Ford Performance Hood Struts open in a progressive manner like the Redline Tuning struts do? Thanks

        • The Ford Performance Hood Strut Kit will open in a linear manner.

        After the kit's installed, does the passenger-side gas strut have to be removed every time to remove the battery cover, or to access the battery?

        • You would need to remove the strut every time you need to get to the battery. However, you can also cut from the side of the cover to the strut hole to remove the battery cover without uninstalling the passenger side gas strut.

            Great Product for an OEM Look

            The kit comes with everything needed to replace the unfriendly prop rod. Fairly easy to install but it took me a few tries to get the washer to grab properly. The first time the bracket slid when I closed the hood. However, it was well worth it.

            Quite a change to access to engine bay

            The change from the stick in the middle to the hood strut kit is very noticeable. you have full access to the engine bay which is very nice and convenient. My ONLY comment is the general feel for when you open the hood - it is not "as" solid as I was hoping (like when you open the trunk). I understand the hood is WAY heavier, but I was hoping for a more solid feel. -- All in all I am VERY happy with this product

            Work As Advertised

            Easy to install, with simple drilling of plastic being the most challenging step. Look nice, work well. Don't expect them to lift the hood for you, but once they get going they do provide some assistance, and will hold the hood at any point during lift. Closes with just a gentle assist.

            Great solution for Hood

            I just finished installing these on my new Mustang Bullitt and found them to be very straight forward once you make all the mistakes figuring out what goes where. The written instructions were just OK and the pictures were undecipherable as delivered so after much fumbling about I went on line and AM had a video on line of the install which was much more usable to do what as it turns out to be , a very simple install. If there is something fidgety about it , it would be the driver side forward mounting as the littler rods kept coming out of the stamping when tightening down the nut. Other than that it was straight forward simple and what took well over an hour or so the first time , I could easily accomplish and a half hour . Demons in the details so as usual once you know how it is no problem. Did it all by myself and so I decided to keep the stick installed as a back up for when I need to remove the battery cover which requires un attaching the passenger side strut.

            Much better

            The hood struts work much better than the stock prop rod. Installation was quick and easy. The only difficulty was getting the cut right on the battery box cover. Using the provided template it still needed to be adjusted in order to get the lower mount to fit.

            Don't believe your lie-n eyes...

            Not sure if Ford has an embargo on everyone but don't drill a one inch hole It's no where near big enough. If I had to do it again I just start with a pilot hole and use a knife to cut to fit. The plastic cuts really easily with a sharp blade. Even the YouTubers that show their installs gloss over the fact that they had to make the hole much larger on the battery cover to get it to fit. I also had a hard time getting the passenger side fender bracket to stay straight. Once in - they work amazing! Love the prop rod delete.

            I'd give a solid 5 if the template was accurate. For those that go with this option make the cover hole about a 3/4" closer to the front and it will be perfect. Finish is great and I was surprised when they lifted my hood after the half way mark as reviews and the description indicated they dont on a stock hood. I'd recommend for sure.
