    Deletes Factory Prop Rod. With all the cool technology the S197 Mustang features it is hard to believe that Ford still uses an old school prop rod to hold up the hood. But now you can ditch that prop rod and add a clean appearance and modern convenience to your 2005-2014 Pony by installing a RedLine Tuning QuickLIFT PLUS Hood System.

    Slow Release System. RedLine Tuning QuickLIFT PLUS Hood Struts use powerful custom-valved gas springs that feature a progressive release system. In the final few inches of operation the struts slow the rate of extension allowing for a smooth, fluid lifting process.

    Complete Kit. The QuickLIFT PLUS system includes two black e-coated progressive-rate gas springs that will lift and hold your Mustangs hood securely in place. The kit also includes black powder-coated brackets with ball-stud end fittings and the necessary mounting hardware required for installation.

    Factory or Aftermarket Hood. The QuickLIFT PLUS System is available for both factory or aftermarket hoods. Installation of the factory kit utilizes pre-existing holes on the underside of the stock hood, so no drilling is required. Where the aftermarket kit will require drilling into the underside of the hood and attaching the mounting brackets with the supplied pop-rivets.

    Application. This RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System is designed to fit all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Boss and Shelby GT500 models. Available for factory or aftermarket hoods - Please select from options above.

    Will these work with a Cervini Cobra R Hood (2014 Model)

    • Yes these will work with a Cervini Cobra R hood, you just want to be sure to select the option for an aftermarket hood.

    I’ve got a factory hood but it came with that heavier faux blower on it(California Special). It’s definitely a heavy hood, but came factory. So I’m a little unsure which model to get. Should I get the struts that hold the heavier weight... the non-factory “Redline” struts?

    • We would recommend ordering the stock hood option. The aftermarket kit would include rivets due to having different mounting locations than the stock hood but the struts would be the same for the lift system.

    will these work with a carbon fiber hood it is identical to the original hood just made out of carbon fiber. All holes are in the same place as original hood.

    • If the hood on your vehicle meets all the original specifications as the factory, then you will want the hood strut indicated for the "Factory Hood".

    If I planned on buying a new aftermarket hood in the near future, should I just buy the aftermarket kit now and install when I get the hood? Or do I need to buy 2 completely different systems?

    • If you were looking on grabbing an aftermarket hood in the near future I would suggest selecting item 390387-B as this is the option of struts which are designed specifically to support aftermarket hoods.

      Just what you need.

      I have to admit I tried a competitor's kit first. Wouldn't hold the hood up, totally useless. I ordered these and installed them in about 10 minutes. Not only does it hold the hood up, it actually lifts the hood by itself from halfway up. Just like the video. Sooo happy with this setup. Lose that stupid prop rod. Very impressed. I would highly recommend this kit for anyone with a Mustang. No more lifting that heavy hood and using that sorry prop rod.

      HOOD STRUT

      Had MDD bolt on hood strut kit which failed after "a little over a year" (hard on the head). Replace with RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System and am very happy with this system, (so far). "Lifts the hood" and holds it up just fine. Sonny Z. USAF Ret.

      Not bad

      The kit installs well with no issues, except for the fact that the lower strut c clamp bent in when trying to pop it on the bracket, so I had to pop the c clamp out and bend it back in place. Otherwise, it installed very smoothly

      Hood Struts Work Perfectly!

      On the 2014 Mustang GT I own, this kit worked superbly. I watched the install YouTube video and followed the instructions. It took me like 30 minutes to install these. They work superbly. I pop the hood go and release the manual lock and slightly lift, my hood goes up. Depending on the downward pressure the hood either shuts and locks as if factory smooth or it will latch and all I have to do is gently push and the hoods locked. Highly recommended. Great price, quality product. I will see how they hold up long term. I live in the Northwest where my car is constantly wet. If these struts survive here, they will last anywhere.

      Redline QuickLift Plus Hood Struts

      The Redline Tuning Hood Quicklift Plus System Hood struts work very well on a 2008 Mustang with Stock hood. The only issue following the enclosed installation instructions to install both the hood and the fender mounts before connecting the strut makes connecting the fender side of the strut very hard to connect. Because the clip in the fender side of the strut is very tight and hard to see. When mounting the strut after the mount is attached to the fender it is very easy to bend or break the needed clip. I found that attaching the fender mount to the strut can be done with a little wiggling the strut and mount without this being mounted to the fender. You may need to insert a screwdriver to pull the clip a little loose so the the strut will pop into the mount. Then you can connect the hood side of the strut to the already mounted hood mount ( This side pops into mount very easily and then move the strut and fender mount into position and mount this mount to the fender.

      Great addition to any Mustang. Would suggest to anyone. They were very easy to install and look so much better then the prop rod. Why Ford opted not to put them on the Mustang is beyond me.
