    Prop Rod? Are you still using that old style prop rod that Ford installed on your 2005-2009 Mustang? Join the new millennium with a set of officially licensed Bolt-On Hood Struts with Mustang Lettering from MMD for modern convenience and impressive under hood styling.

    Officially Licensed by Ford. This set of two Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts is Officially Licensed by Ford and feature the modern "MUSTANG" text in block lettering. The Mustang logos are not just cheap decals that will peel off in a matter of months, they are laser cut out of each mounting bracket.

    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 make opening your Pony's hood much easier, they also hold 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. The kit includes two gas powered struts, mounting brackets and all the required mounting hardware.

    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.

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

      Mustang Hood Strut

      It works and it looks nice when the hood is up. I would have giving it 5 stars but the instructions are nearly useless and the shocks are too strong for lifting the hood so keep your hand on the hood when it goes up so it doesn’t bounce at the top.

      Hood Strut Kit

      Doesn't really take long at all. To make things a little easier I recommend it being a two man job just to help speed things up it also makes it safer. Finish product looks great, and they hold up strong.

      Great look!

      I would recommend 2 people just for a smoother install. But you can still definitely do it yourself.

      Looks good, easy enough to install. 1 year later, hood wont stay up. If you buy these, dont throw out your oe hood prop, you'll need it again soon enough.

      Hood Strut

      Serves it's function but mustang lettering not very visible. Could be a bit more sturdy and locking in strut is pretty hard it does not lock in very easy... I also had to relocate a air valve that was in the way of the left hood strut.

    Purchased the struts about a 18 months ago. Easy to out on, lots of compliments at car shows and meets. Give it a 5 in all categories. The struts seem to have lost their hydraulic lift. The strut no longer holds the hood. Does AM offer replacement struts without having to purchase the whole set?

    • Unfortunately, Modern Muscle Design does not offer a warranty this far from the date which the kit was acquired.

    I purchased these struts in 09/14. Everyone that sees them, love them. However, the struts have since failed. How do I go about just replacing them? I don't need the entire kit, just the struts.

    • For the MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit you can just replace the struts if you would like, (Part#41276)

    will hood struts work on a Cervini's hood will these hood struts work on a Cervini's hood? if not, which ones will?

    • The hood struts fit the standard hood bolt holes. Beyond that it might be good to check out if the Cervini structure is flexible so that the struts push it up when the hood is closed.

    '13 & '14 additional requirements I asked a shop to install these, but after the technician ruined my hood installing the CDC Shaker, no one would install them because the instructions say to cut an inch out of some plastic piece and basically move the piece under the plane of the hood.
