    Features & Details

    • Clean Styling
    • Deletes Stock Prop Rod
    • Gas Powered Struts
    • No Drilling Required
    • Black Powder Coat Finish
    • Fits All 2005-2009 Mustangs
    Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style factory prop rod that Ford installed in your S197 Mustang? Well then join the new millennium with a set of Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts from AmericanMuscle for clean modern looks and convenience.

    Style And Strength. Designed to get rid of that old ugly prop rod, this set of two powerful yet sleek MMD gas struts not only makes opening your Pony's hood much easier, but also holds it securely in place. Made from lightweight steel and aluminum, they have a black powercoated finish to give your engine bay a much cleaner appearance.

    No Drilling Required. The stamped steel brackets included in this MMD kit are designed to bolt into the existing mounting holes in the hood so there is no drilling required for installation. Struts can be installed on factory hoods as well as aftermarket hoods that use the factory bolt location. If your aftermarket hood is lighter than the factory hood, use caution when opening the hood due to the power of the strut.

    Installation. Taking approximately one hour to install, this kit includes two black gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

    Application. This Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is specifically designed for use on the 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models.

    Mounting require hood removal? With bolt on install, can you leave hood in place with prop rod & install one side at a time or is this a 2 man job with hood removal? Thanx

    • You can do it by yourself, I did, however it would be easier if you had another set of hands. just follow the instructions and do not fully remove the bolts holding the hood, remove the front bolt and then loosen the back bolt. You will have to push the hood away from the factory bracket to get the hood strut bracket sandwiched in between, then tighten the bolt and then then reinstall the front bolt. The one thing that happened on both sides is the bolts on the fender appeared to strip as they could not be tightened fully but they do hold and I have not had a problem with them. Good luck and one of the better mods I made as no prop rod to get in the way.

    Are there replacement struts? After just a couple of years they struts that came with this kit will no longer hold up my hood. Are the struts Vehicle specific?

    • Unfortunately there is no warranty on these hood struts so the only way to get a replacement would be to buy another pair, although it never hurts to call in and speak with a customer service representative to see if there is anything they can do. And yes, these struts are specifically designed for 05-14 Mustangs.

    Strength? Are these strong enough to hold up a fiberglass hood? My hood is heavy and the Drake struts are not able to hold..

    • I have a Tru-Fiber hood on my '11 and these struts work wonderful. I don't think you will have any problems.

      Review from MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Black (10-14 All)

      MMD Hood Struts

      A fantastic product that should honestly be on all modern cars from the factory. This product really cleans up the engine bay, just by the lack of the lame hood brace being in the front. In addition to this, the hood is elevated higher allowing you to reach areas close to the firewall easier. To make installation easier the braces have a pin in them that can be removed and reinserted to allow the ball joint to fit.

      Works for 2 years then fails

      Install is easier with an extra pair of hands. Loved them 4 2 years then they lost the power to keep the hood up - found that out the hard way when the hood smacked me in the head. No warranty or desire to replace.

      2nd set of struts

      This is my 2nd set of struts in 3 years; they work well but their life is limited. And when they fail, they fail completely, so best to not remove your 'original equipment' hood-support prop rod and keep it in place and available while using the hood struts so you're prepared when they fail; it's a good back-up that you don't appreciate until you need it. They're are other brands of struts that are more expensive, and I don't know if that translates to longer life, but I'm happy enough with these if I get 2-3 years out of them at this price.

      Works excellent...for a while.

      This is one of the first modifications I made to my Mustang when I first bought it. Worked great with the original hood and with the aftermarket fiberglass Hood I bought from American Muscle. They finally gave out after about four years.

      Don’t work well

      The install for the hood struts was very easy but the struts do not hold up my aftermarket hood all the time. Occasionally it will slowly drop the hood after less than 5 minutes of being open

      Tough to connect struts

      Every thing went on fairly easy till I got to the struts. For the life of me I could not get the struts to go over the little ball. The are still not connected. I expected this to be a great mod fot working on my car. Instead it has me questioning weather I should ever buy another product from MMD.

      cant get the struts on

      I worked and worked and just scratched the heck out of the struts to get to snap on the ball. No luck even using channel locks. I could not get them on. Thinking of sending them back. They are totally useless. I am still working on it as I write this review. I am so disheartening with a simple mod for my 2008 Mustang. I am not even sure I want to try and install the other MMD products I bought.

      Strouts too long

      I spent an hour in a windy 26 degree weather trying to install these just to find out they don’t fit. I twisted them took them off tried changing everything around to see if I did something wrong but no they just didn’t fit, they were about 1”-1.5” too long, really disappointed on your product.

      Loose the prop rod!

      Not having to use the prop rod to hold the hood up is a real blessing. These gas charged struts went on quickly and worked as expected. Pretty cool to pop the hood and have it just glide open. Closing the hood is just as easy.

      Failed after 1 year

      Like the rest of the reviews, I had the same problem where the struts failed after 1 year and wouldn't hold the hood up. But I have found a replacement. Do a search for Boxi 4512. These fit as good as the originals. Only time will tell if they last.
