    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.

      Hood Struts

      Very easy install. Works better than MMD strut kit. I had an issue with the hood slamming shut during a car show (hence my replacement). The Redline are much stronger. And when opening, just before fully opening, it dampens.

      Easy to install, looks great.

      Delivery was quick and the product was very easy to install. The hood lifts and closes with ease and does not interfere with parts in the engine compartment. Overall seems like an excellent product. Only time will tell on its reliability. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

      Exactly as described

      Easy product to install. Only install issue comes on moving the factory resonator tube on ‘11-‘14 Mustangs. Lifting the hood is quick and the gas cylinders kick in and you get a slow final extension at the top. Overall the struts open higher than the OEM prop rod. Closing the hood requires just a little more effort than OEM but nothing to crazy. Overall would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get rid of the factory prop rod.

      Works great

      I put these on my 14 Mustang GT, i can't believe Ford kept the prop stick in use all these years.. Installation took me about 30 mins, i spent the first 20 trying to just pop the rods onto the ball.. After skinning my knuckles 457 times i decided to just remove the metal retainer and reinstall it after i got the strut on. I suggest this method.. 3 day shipping took 7 resulting from a "Sorting error".. Not AM's fault, but grr.

      These hood struts are awesome, HUGE improvement over the ugly stock hood prop! Install was an absolute breeze as well, just two drop in brackets and it pops right in. Money well spent!

      Duel prop rod sticks

      These hood struts work better than your prop rod, they are self deploying prop rods. For an honest review, I would recommend these to anyone who plans on getting hood struts. I would not recommend mmd hood struts as they failed and would not hold the hood up and they have a bad design. However, these redline struts hold the hood up and after you pull the hood up a little bit, they push the hood up themselves. The installation is super easy and this is one of the first mods you should get.

      Awesome struts!

      Got these and took about 15 mins to install. Went on super easy and included directions were thorough and easy to follow. I love not having the hood rod in the way anymore and the look overall is a great improvement for such a small change. Well worth it.

      Redline tuning hood struts

      Item came as described, nice quality parts, easy to follow directions. Most importantly they work just how i would expect them to work and look good! Searched around trying to find a set that say in the description that they will work with gt500 hoods. These kept coming up so gave them a shot, glad i did couldn't be happier.

      RedLine Hood Quick Lift Plus, Get them!

      These hood struts from RedLine are awesome! They look great and the hardware is heavy duty. The main reason I chose these over the other brands is the mounting points. You don't have to remove the hood from the hinges and risk throwing it out of alignment and you don't need any help with the install. They also have a slow down feature in the lift which I really like. Bottom line, buy these, you wont be disappointed!

      This was about a 10 minute install. Went on easy and works great. After opening the hood and lifting it about 10-12" it opens the rest of the way by itself.

      Excellent product

      15 minute installation on my stock 2007 Mustang GT. They work great (plenty of tension). No need for any modifications to the hood. Really good aftermarket product that should have been standard equipment from the factory. Good packaging from American Muscle. They shipped in a rigid cardboard tube and arrived undamaged.

      Good if they go on easy.

      We got the left side on but when it came to the right side we had to use some force and it bent the C-clip which makes the right side unusable. So from what we could tell from the left side they seem to work nice when they go on easy without breaking.
