      5 Top Rated Questions

      Can the hood bracket be turned down away from the hood? My hood is a H.O. fibertrend hood. Per instructions the ball stud end will interfere with underside of hood. If ball stud leg faces down it will work. Can this be done with no opening problems?

      • The hood brackets are intended for installation in one way only, and that cannot be modified while also retaining proper function.

      I have a 1993 mustang fox body notchback, and was wondering if these would work and fit well. I cannot use a normal hood prop because of my aftermarket hood doesn't have holes or slots in it.

      • Yes, these will work well with the 93 Fox body.

          Bad seals

          These hood struts worked great for about 2 years but unfortunately the passenger side leaks now and it wont keep the hood propped for more than 10 seconds. Very sketchy when trying to work on the car and the hood comes down on your head!

          looks great

          These look great and are strong enough to hold up the stock metal hood. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is the fitment. I had to cut a hole in the hood structure to fit the bracket when the hood is closed.

          These are the best hood struts you can get for your fox body period! The quality is second to none, fitment is excellent and they look great with the red accents! Worth every penny and shipped fast! Thank u A.M!

          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!

          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.

          Redline Tuning Strut Kit

          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.

          Perfect fit

          Perfect fit even with a aftermarket hood.. I have a champion hood and they are not built very good they take a lot of work to make right and these hood struts fit perfect and love how easy they work and how smooth.. if you have a foxbody these are a must get rid of the dumb hood prob it's always in the way anyway....

          Redline Hood Strut conversion.

          I was able to use the struts on my 1983 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe. When adding an intercooler I was unable to mount the stock hood prop. It was a blessing in disguise as I found the 1979 to 1998 Mustang Redline Hood Struts at American Muscle. It was fairly simple to adapt them to the Thunderbird and they work great.
