      Video Review & Installation

      Hey, guys. Adam here with Today we're taking a quick look at and installing the MMD Hood Struts in black available for the 2015 and newer Mustang. You should be checking this out for your new S550 if you're looking to delete that ugly in the way factory hood prop to get a more modern under hood styling that actually gives you a lot easier time working on your engine bay and showing up at car shows. Now, any time we're working on the engine bay and we're having to lean over the front such as working on a cold air intake, the hood prop is right there in your face making you move around it, work over the fenders, it can be a bit awkward. So, having an opportunity to delete that ugly hood prop is always something to take advantage of, at least in my opinion. These, in particular, are also gonna make it a lot easier to show up at car shows. So, opening your hood, this is gonna be a lot easier, it's gonna smooth transition, it's also just gonna make it look a lot more attractive.Now, this one, in particular, is black like I said before so there's no logos, there's no branding on it which I personally do like about this kit. Some of the hood struts in the category give you some bright lettering, it stands out like a sore thumb, and that's not gonna be the case here. It really blends in nicely and it's super subtle. Now, those are black anodized finish so it's not gonna rust or corrode, it's protecting the hood struts, the gas pressurized design so you don't have to worry about them getting weathered over time. One thing I will say that's different about these from other ones in the kit that actually makes it a little bit more affordable is they're not tuned progressive struts. What that basically means is some of the more expensive options in the category have all the bells and whistles like when it opens toward the top it starts to slow down so it doesn't jerk. That's not gonna be the case here, when it does hit the top, it does have a little bit of a hit but it's not gonna damage anything, it's not a negative in any way, it's just one of those bells and whistles that you get by spending a little bit more money on a premium option whereas this is more of an entry level.Now, coming in around 60 bucks, it is super affordable which is definitely a bonus. I'd say you should pick these up if you're looking to save some money from your wallet and also trying to get one that is completely black and is really, really subtle that blends in. The install for this I'll say gets one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. One of the big bonuses here is also going to be they do not require drilling. Some of the ones in the category do require drilling, some of them required cutting into your factoring battery cover which isn't the end of the world, but some guys might wanna leave all that stuff OEM, and unmodified. So, this is also gonna be the way to go. Now, the install is gonna take about 45 minutes to an hour from start to finish. It can be a little bit of a tight fit in which case you might wanna remove some of those retaining pins to snap them in and then replace the pins. I'll get toward that a little bit later on. Now, I'm gonna take you through every step of the way. The only tool you're going to need is a ratchet and a 10-millimeter socket. So, what do you say we get to it?Tools used in this install include a quarter-inch ratchet and a 10-millimeter deep socket.To kick off the uninstall, there really isn't a ton you have to do but you wanna take a 10-millimeter socket and a quarter-inch ratchet. We're gonna go to our passenger side hood hinge on the underside of our hood. You're gonna remove the top 10-millimeter nut and just loosen the bottom one. All right. You wanna set this aside to be reinstalled and then just loosen that bottom one. Take that same socket and you're gonna remove your 10-millimeter fender bolt. All right. Now, you're gonna take the passenger side hood bracket included in your kit. It's labeled PU on the underside here which is gonna be for your passenger side upper bracket. What you're gonna do is slide this over the bottom stud that we loosened up and put the top stud, we remove the nut through that hole and replace the nut. Now, what you do wanna do is since we're on our passenger side and has our washer lines, you're basically gonna take this top washer line right here and just unclip it. From here you can slide this on. All right. Replace those 10-millimeter nuts. Next up for our lower bracket which is labeled PL, passenger lower, we're gonna start by installing this over our fender. Now, you wanna make sure the knob here where your strut is gonna go is on the right side. So, this lip here is gonna be facing downward. You're gonna set this in place just like that, line it up to that fender hole and replace your 10-millimeter bolt. You wanna make sure this is nice and straight and tighten it back down with your socket. Repeat this for the other side. Now, guys, installing your hoods struts, you wanna install this section down and if it's too tight to snap over the little knob on your bottom bracket, what you can do is use your fingers or a small flathead screwdriver, push the retaining pin off of that collar but not fully remove it. You're just gonna pop this off so that it rotates like that but still is inserted into the hole and we can install that over our bracket. All right. Once you have that snapped in place, you can push the retainer pin back in place. Perfect. Now, you can repeat this for the other side.That's gonna wrap up my review and install for the MMD Hood Struts in black available for the '18 and newer GT or EcoBoost Mustang. If you wanna pick these up for yourself, you can do so right here at

      A Prop Rod, Really? It is really hard to believe that Ford is still equipping their S550 Mustangs with an old style prop rod. But, now you can add the clean good looks and modern convenience of hood struts to your late model Pony with a set of Modern Muscle Design Hood Struts.

      Style And Strength. Designed to get rid of that ugly prop rod, this set of two sleek yet powerful MMD gas struts not only makes opening your Pony's hood much easier, but they also hold it securely in place. Made from lightweight steel and aluminum, they feature a durable black powder coated 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.

      Application. This Modern Muscle Design Hood Strut Kit is specifically designed for use on the 2015-2023 GT, EcoBoost and V6 Ford Mustang models.

      Technical Note. This MMD Bolt on Hood Strut Kit does not fit European Spec Mustangs.
