Features & Details

  • QuickLIFT PLUS Hood Struts
  • Deletes Stock Prop Rod
  • Progressive, Slow Release System

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.

It's better than stock.

It's definitely an upgrade from stock (prop up rod) but I can't help but feel like they could be better somehow. The feel really isn't that smooth from closed to fully extended almost like the pressure ...

Will this work on a 2017 GT350?

  • This RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System is designed to only be used with the 10-14 Mustangs equipped with the factory or optional aftermarket hood. You would want to specifically look for hood struts designed for the 15-17 Mustangs.

    It's definitely an upgrade from stock (prop up rod) but I can't help but feel like they could be better somehow. The feel really isn't that smooth from closed to fully extended almost like the pressure in the cylinders are slightly different than each other. But hey no one else notices stuff like that but me...because nobody loves my pony like me I guess.

    Performs great, one issue

    The struts have been on for about a month. I've opened the hood maybe 10 times and they've held up great. Longevity remains to be seen. My one complaint is of a bent part. Each strut has a ball-socket joint on the end which attahes to hardware adapters which attach to the car. Each socket has a metal tension clip that surrounds it to retain the ball within the joint. The metal clip has two lips which are inside the socket. One of them was bent and would not allow the ball to pop into the socket. I tried to fix it myself, bent it a bit more, so at that point I knew a return was impossible. The bent socket end is on, though not securely. I'll keep using it till it breaks, then go back to using the hood prop.

    Great product!

    I was working on my boss when I bumped the prop rod and the hood slammed me in the head. Once I regained consciousness and the bleeding stopped I immediately ran to the computer and got on American muscle. I ordered the redline quick lift . I just received them today and installed them in 15 min. What a great product they keep my hood up even if I bump into it. I would recommend all mustang owners to get a pair if you don't want a concussion. Thanks American muscle.

    Great product!

    This product is definitely worth the money. The install took about 10 minutes, would have taken 5 but my sound tube was I the way of one of the brackets. This kit uses all holes and bolts that already exist under the hood and everything lines up great! Get rid of that ugly hood prop and gain some extra working room under you hood. Awesome product!!

    Great product, should have been factory!

    These hood struts are one of the best functional mods I have done to my '07 V6 convertible's engine bay yet. They install cleanly utilizing a fender bolt and a hole already in the factory hood, which means you do not have to mess with the hood hinges like most other kits out there. I like the black finish and the Redline tuning logo on the struts. They came with clear, color-print instructions and installed in about 15 minutes. They fit my stock hood very well, and just one was enough to lift the hood so with the combined strength of both of them, the hood lifts up like a breeze. They also close well, and if you install them the way the instructions say, they will have no problem clearing the strut towers. I recommend these to any S197 owner look to ditch the ugly factory prop rod and install what I think should have been factory to begin with.

    The BEST Struts Available!

    Redline Struts offer an added bonus that other brands do not. The great thing about this brand is you do not have to remove the hood hinges or mess with the hinge bolts. Which means you don't mess with the hood alignment or have to hold the hood while messing with the hinges. These Struts bolt into existing holes while the original prop rod holds up the hood. Simple, effective and works great. Installation took bout 15 minutes and the end result was great. I'm very glad I bought these hood Struts and I highly recommend them! No modern V-8 muscle car should come with a sissy prop-rod hood support!

    So, beware of the 1/2" nut on the hood screws. I had to use a deep dish to get to these. Once I got that straight, spot on and awesome.

    Great fit and function!

    This kit fit with no issues. I chose this one because I didn't like the other kits with the huge brackets. This one looks oe and works great. I did notice the hood opens maybe half an inch less than when sitting on the hood prop.

    NO MORE PROP ROD

    Purchased these for my 2009 GT about two weeks ago and I couldn't be happier! They work extremely smooth and easy. Look and feel like they are original from the factory! Always hated that ugly prop rod!!! I bought these because I really didn't want to mess with the hood bolts and I never really liked the looks of the others. I waited to see if there would be something else to come along and glad I did!!! Install took about 15 minutes and very simple. Great product and an even greater look holding the hood up!!! Thanks American Muscle for the great products!!!

    Way better than the prop.

    These Redline Tuning Hood QuickLIFT are great. Its convenient to have room to work all around the engine without having to deal with a prop. They were very helpful when I went to put my CAI in the car. The install was pretty straight forward, I did have a problem keeping the back of the bolt vertical. Everytime I went to tighten it, it would move. I used a medium size flat head to keep it in place. Overall a great product and there was no drilling which was sweet.
