      Review & Installation Video

      Hey guys, Adam here with Today we're taking a quick look at and installing the Redline Tuning QuickLift PLUS Hood Strut System available for the '05 to '14 Mustang. Now once you have your hood latch lifted, its really easy to use, they're really stylish, and they're a great option for the guys out there owning an S197, looking to replace that in the way and kind of ugly factory hood prop here. Now you can leave it down here and just tuck it underneath but now with these new hood struts, there's absolutely no reason to pull that out of place. As you just saw, I used two fingers to pop this up and it's got a slow progressive release system. That means it's coming up very gently and when it reaches the top it slows down even more until it's fully in its upright position. Putting it back down again, just as simple. It's got a slowly gonna go right back down into the latch. For the pair you can get them for just under 100 bucks, they come with a gloss black finish and the Redline Tuning logo, vinyled right on the side. They're extremely easy to remove if you ever want to go back to that factory hood prop but honestly, in my opinion, there will be no need to do that. These are super easy to use, they're very stylish, and they're a great and convenient option to replace that factory hood problem. Now as far as the installation is concerned one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, it'll take you about 30 to 45 minutes at the most. Simple hand tools required like a ratchet and a 10-millimeter deep socket. And I'm gonna show you guys how it gets done, so let's get to it. To get started with the install, you'll wanna make sure that you're leaving on your factory hood prop because you have to hold the hood up some way while you're installing your hood struts and then we can come back to that later on. Now to kick off installing the actual hood struts themselves, we're gonna start off with our ball stud retainer and our conical washer. That's gonna go into the pre-drilled hole on the edge of our hood frame on the inside. And that hole has been pre-drilled so that you'll slide in that conical washer and twist this on, tightening it down on both sides. I'm gonna start on the passenger side but I do wanna point out, if you wanna untwist this and unthread it about halfway on that stud, leaving some room so that this doesn't fall into the hood but also giving you enough room to slide it into the hole. So let me show you what I'm talking about. All right, starting here on the edge of the hood, you wanna work your way up from that hood bracket, to the first hole on the edge of the inside of that hood. With this halfway threaded backwards making sure that this is not going to fall off, you wanna insert the edging into that pre-drilled hole and latch it on the inside. Now you'll see you have a lot of play with this since we're on the passenger side, we're gonna put this as close to the outside of the passenger side as possible. On the driver's side, we'll do the opposite. So since we're on this side, we're gonna go ahead and twist this in to tighten it down, making sure it's on as far to the left as possible toward the passenger side. Since it's tightened down by hand, we're gonna repeat this for the opposite side then come back down and tighten them down with our ratchet. All right, same process here for the driver's side, I've got it threaded halfway off making sure it won't fall out into the hood. Blast that in, pull it all the way to the driver's side. And we're gonna twist this down. Now when you're twisting it to tighten it you might have to pull against it to put enough pressure to get it to stop spinning and actually tighten on the threading. And now that we have it inside, I'm gonna go ahead and tighten this down with our hand. Grab our 15-millimeter deep socket and tighten this down. Now we're gonna grab our 0.5-inch deep socket and tighten these down. All right, right underneath of the stud we just installed, we're gonna put in one of our fender brackets. Now we have to remove the fender bolt sitting next to that oval-shaped opening here. You're gonna use your 10-millimeter socket to get that off, the bracket is gonna sit right over that hole and you're going to tighten down that factory bolt. That'll sit right over the top of that threaded hole and you're gonna put that bolt right back into place. All right, repeat that same thing for the other side. All right, we got our 10-millimeter socket, we're gonna remove the bolt on our driver side fender, put in our new bracket, and tighten the bolt right back down to its factory location. All right, now we can move on to the next step. The last steps here now that we have our fender brackets in place, is to set our hood struts into place so we can get this foot prop out of the way. So what we're gonna do is put our extended end on the bottom here on our fender. We've got to snap it into place firmly. Now there's metal retaining clips in that stud there that you'll have to snap through. And if you ever wanted to remove them, you just use a flat-head screwdriver to pry up on that metal clip. So we're gonna firmly press them into place, it might take a little elbow grease. Then we're gonna lift up on our hood to line up our top end to snap it into the ball stud up here, so let's get to it. All right, now we can do the same thing for the other side. That's gonna wrap up my review and install of the Redline Tuning QuickLift PLUS Hood Strut System, available for the '05 to '14 Mustang. And you can get yours right here at

      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.

        Great struts and easy to install.

        The install was almost straight forward. Just had to relocate the cabin tube bracket to below the ledge. All said very easy.

        These are great and worth the money.

        I got these about two weeks ago and install them. Now I don’t have to use that ugly pop rod that gets in my way. The install is easy and they are stable to the point where I never have to think that they will fail my hood. Worth every penny!

        Literally one of the most useful, and easiest install projects you can do for your mustang. Very quick and easy to install, and the struts work great. Clean, simple, and easy kit. Nicely priced. You won't regret it.

      Will I have to remove or relocate the sound tube to install the drivers-side Redline Hood strut?

      • The RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System will be able to be installed without having to remove or relocate your sound tube.

      What is the pound rating on the aftermarket and the factory? I have the " 98610 - SpeedForm Venom Hood - Unpainted (10-12 GT, V6)" that AM used to sell in 2017. I have the "41283 - MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit - Chrome (05-14 All) Item #: 41283" that I bought from AM. They don't hold the hood if the temp is onder 50 degree inside or out!

      It looks like part of the sound tube assembly is in the way on the drivers side on my 2011 GT. Do you need to do a sound tube delete before installing these?

      • No, these require no modification for install, save drilling holes and such if you have an aftermarket hood.

      Hello, Could you post more information for the RedLine tuning hood QuickLIFT plus system for after market hoods? I did not realize that with my after market hood I would have to drill holes into my hood and use rivets to hold the top bracket for the struts, maybe even have a second video. Thanks Cos

      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? 1 answer
