    Features & Details

    • Race Inspired Styling
    • Deletes Stock Prop Rod
    • Gas Powered Struts
    • No Drilling Required
    • Carbon Fiber Appearance
    • Fits All 2005-2014 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 feature a carbon fiber appearance to give your engine bay race inspired styling.

    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 Modern Muscle Design Carbon Fiber Hood Strut Kit is specifically designed for use on the 2005 to 2014 Ford Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, BOSS and Shelby GT500 models. The Kit includes two gas powered struts, mounting brackets, and all the required mounting hardware.

    Fitment: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Details

    Hood struts for Shelby ? Hi - I have a '08 Shelby Super Snake with the fiberglass hood provided at Shelby. Will these struts work flawlessly with this hood also and require no drilling ? They will go great with my carbon fiber trim parts from Shelby if so ! thanks - Cam

    • The MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Carbon Fiber is designed to fit all 05-14 Mustangs with the stock hood. As long as you still have the factory hood on the car, you should not have any issues with these Hood Struts. The installation of these Struts do not require any drilling. It is a fairly easy install. If you follow the link below, it will take you to a detailed installation guide. http://1.cdn.lib.americanmuscle.com/files/2015-install-guide-images/41282-100336-manu/P3002.pdf

      2013 gt500 bolt on hood strut

      works well, looks good, 10x better than a prop rod. Just one problem it was hard to fit the knuckle in the hole. other than that it does the job nice.

      This is a must have for anyone that shows their car. Takes care of that disgusting prop rod. I wish there was more carbon fiber for the price.

      Very Short life span

      What everyone seems to not mention is that these have a very short life span. I got these around 4 years ago and they already went out. The fine print means that these are not genuine carbon fiber. Just a fake carbon fiber sleeve that goes around them. Definitely not worth the price

      STRUT KIT

      install was simple and straightforward even for me and I was quite impressed with product. At first I thought it would not hold hood up but once installed product was quite sturdy. Very nice addition.

      Installation

      First the product works. I just did not like the design of the bracket to fender, the post for struts is in front of only bolt. This causes a twisting action. Works but not a clean smooth look

      MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

      Once installed hood struts work great, couldn't be happier. However, had to grind down the heads of the stock hood bolts reused by the kit for the upper strut bracket install. Before grinding, the bolt heads were contacting the bottom strut bracket preventing the hood from closing properly. Wasn't a direct bolt on. If not for that I would have given a 5 star rating.

      Tomz dream

      This is for me one of those must have mods! I have a bad left shoulder and the stick that Ford gives you to prop the hood open just didn't work for me. So now, I can open the hood with ease and style. I paid a little more and got the carbon hinges and believe me people do notice the carbon. This mod was priceless for me but also looks sharp. The hood opens with no effort. Thanks again Am.

      Great Product, looks good and fuctions well; Instruction left out.

      You will like the Product, once installed and I hope to save you a headache or two in the installation process. The bolt-on hardware goes in place nicely following the installation flier. When you attempt to, just pop on the struts, they don't (at least on my product). You can use lubricant, use a rubber mallet and still they just won't "pop" on. Here is what MMD left out and the manufacturer recommends. Each strut has two retaining springs, one each end. Take them out by using you fingernail to ply them open and then slide out all these retainers (They are small, don't lose them). Now the struts will just pop into place easily. Once installed, replace the retainer clips by sliding them into their original holes and rotating back over the shaft. They are small and it's tricky to handle with struts in place, but it works. Viola! You're done. Now, how to avoid stupid . . . take it from an expert. Before removing the fender and hood bolts in the first steps, cover the recesses of your engine compartment with a cloth leaving no place for a dropped bolt to fall. I did not, dropped a hood bold and it went between the fender and the battery and came to rest below the battery box. Yep, I had to remove the battery and the battery box to get it adding about an hour and a half of unnecessary work. Now that was stupid, indeed and the air was blue for awhile! Don't repeat my error.

      Quick mod that makes all the difference.

      These worked just as advertised, bolt right on the the car and they lift the hood without question. No need to try and realign the hood just follow the instructions and it should shut perfectly.
