Great item, and works really well. I didnt think this would work too well with a Fiberglass hood, but works perfectly! I recommend this to anyone!

  • The RedLine Tuning Quicklift Hood Struts will have no issues fitting to a Cervini's Cobra R Hood, and will have no clearance issues with any caster camber plates.

Whats the diffrence between these and the redline tuning quicklift elite hood struts?

StangManWes

  • Elite is Polished Stainless Steel for a chrome look with Redline Tuning painted on side of tube in red and black, hardware is black powder-coated QuickLift is Black with Redline Tuning painted on side of tube in red and white with Silver Zinc-plated hardware (Hardware Looks Like Stainless Steel) To be honest I liked the look of the black tube with red/white lettering better and is what I purchased (QuickLift) and the price is much more reasonable at $70 as opposed to $120 (Elite) My QuickLift is a quality product, looks great and works as advertised.

    Why didn't I do this years ago

    These hood struts are excellent. They are functional and have given our Mustang Cobra a better look. I like the wide-open engine access you get without the prop rod in your way.The zinc-plated steel brackets could have been pre-finished in black. Good clear and concise instructions. Good job Redline Tuning

    Nice n Easy

    It is a great up grade, getting rid of that ugly prop rod really cleans up the under hood of any mustang ride..Hood actually is open about 10 more than with the old clunky rod.

    fits great with Maximum Motorsport Caster / Camber Plates

    I purchased these after the MRT hood strut kit would not clear my Maximum Motorsport caster / camber plates. I was a little hesitant with this kit as you need to drill into your hood to secure it. I have a Cervini hood, and these hoods struts fit pretty good. The only issue you might have is when you close the hood, there is a slight clearance issue with a fender bolt on each side of the car. My drivers' side fit well, but I ended up removing the passenger side so that everything would close properly. I am going to get a carriage bolt with the rounded head to replace the fender bolt on each side of the car. Other than that the brackets mount very securely with the included rivets. Great product overall.

    Easy to install, work great

    I installed these on my fully restomodded '89 Fox coupe, they went in very easily and work great. Excellent instructions and pictures to follow along with. A big plus is they open the hood up much farther than the stock prop rod and are not in the way when trying to work on the car. Highly recommended!

    No more propping the hood...

    This is a great improvement on any Mustang. No more rods in the way. Opens and raises with one hand. Drops and latches perfectly. Installed in about 20 minutes. Only one recommendation. Space the fender mounts about an extra 1/8" of an inch from fender for easier installation. Highly recommended...and good price!

    The kit was easy to install with the correct drill bits. Make sure to use new or fairly new sharp bits. The provided installation instructions are well written and provide a lot of detail.
