    Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the Redline Tuning Hood Quicklift Plus System for 2015 and up GT, Ecoboost, and V6 Mustangs. The Redline Tuning Hood Quicklift Plus System's gonna be a good option for anyone looking to delete the factory prop rod and clean up the engine bay. These have black, e-coated finishes, so they'll look nice on any car, and they're a simple product that makes a big difference under the hood. These are gonna create a cleaner appearance overall and they have much nicer look than the factory prop rod does. These are gonna be a good mod for those of you that show your car and that need that clean look but they're also a good mod for those of you out there that work under the hood a lot. I have a set of hood struts in my fox body and it's much easier to work under the hood when there isn't a hood prop in the way. So not only do these look good, they also have some good use as well. Redline offers two sets of Quicklift systems and they do have different prices. The difference is gonna be in the finish. So these ones are e-coated black and the other ones, the Elite System, have a stainless steel finish. They have the same features, just a little bit of a different look. So speaking of features, the hood struts are valved gas springs that have a progressive release system, so your hood isn't gonna just fly up or down. They have a controlled lift and the struts do slow as they get to the top of the lift to make things more progressive. And the mounting brackets are stainless steel. As far as price, you can expect to spend about $100 for this kit, and if you'd like to spring for the Elite kit, that's about $30 more. This is a complete kit, so you get the two struts, the fender brackets with the red inserts, the hood brackets, a plastic drill guide, and the drill bit as well to make things easier for you. So I mentioned drilling. Yes, you will need a drill for the install, but it's still a straight-forward install. These install using pre-existing holes in the top of the fenders and on the underside of the stock hood, so you don't have to drill into metal. You will need to drill a small hole in the plastic battery cover, but you do get a template and the drill bit, so it's not too bad. You can expect to spend an hour on the install and I'm going to call this a solid one on the difficulty meter. You do have to drill, but it's nothing big, and you are drilling into plastic, so really anyone can handle it. You need a 13 millimeter deep socket, an electric drill, and a center punch for the install and that's about it. You start by removing the top hinge bolt on the passenger side of the car so you can pull the bracket over the upper hinge bolt and then move to the left side of the car. The bracket installs the same way on this side. Next you'll need to position the plastic guide to mark the center of the hole for the battery cover with the punch that you have or you could just use the template to drill. If you follow the book, once the hole is marked, you're ready for drilling. It would be safest to take the battery cover off to drill, but we left it on and completed the install just fine. After that, you can install the fender brackets and then the hood struts. They just snap into place with the hood spring housing side facing the hood and the extension side on the fender. Wrapping things up here, the Redline Tuning Hood Quicklift Plus System offers two gas hood struts to replace the factory hood prop. The kit comes complete with everything that you'll need for the install, which is very easy and simple with no modifications required except for a small hole in the battery cover. You can check this kit out more online right here, at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Deletes Factory Prop Rod. It is hard to believe that Ford still uses an old style prop rod to hold up the hood of their all new S550 Mustang. But now you can ditch that prop rod and add a clean appearance and modern convenience to your 2015-2017 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.

    Straight Forward Installation. The QuickLIFT PLUS System installs utilizing pre-existing holes in the top of the fenders and on the underside of the stock hood, so no drilling into metal is required. However you will need to drill a hole into the plastic battery cover to access one of the holes on the fender. A template and a stepped drill bit is included for your convenience.

    Application. This RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System is designed to fit all 2015 to 2017 Mustangs, including the V6, EcoBoost and GT models. Does not fit Shelby GT350's.

    Please Note. These Hood Struts are not compatible on Non-US Spec Hoods.

    Does anyone know if these cause any bulge in the hood causing the hood to be higher in that area and not line up with the fender?

    • As long as the RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System is installed correctly this will not cause a bulge in the hood.

    will this part fit 2018 gt

    • Unfortunately the RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System has not been test fitted with the 2018 model yet. So fitment cannot be guaranteed at this time.

    Did they fix the issue with the passenger side bracket holes not lining up? Some of the reviews state that this bracket needs to be modified in order for the window washer fluid line hole to line up with bracket.

    • We have not heard of any issues with the washer line needing the bracket to be lined up with the latest latest batches of the RedLine Tuning Hood QuickLIFT PLUS System.

      Much Needed Mod

      Mustangs should have these from the factory. This is one of the best mods I have purchased, and I'm eagerly recommending others purchase these. I'm no longer embarrassed to open my hood and show off my engine bay! Make these hood struts a top priority on your mod list.

      Awesome Addition

      The only thing negative about Hood struts for the 2016 GT is that you got to cut or drill threw the battery cover on the passenger side. Just looks a little awkward, but better than that factory prop rod.

      Works good

      Item works much better than the 5 cent prop rod Ford gave me. Should come from the factory this way. It's also a good idea to cut a slit from the edge of the battery cover to the hole you drill with a Tin Snips, then you can remove your cover easier. Only complaint was the snap fittings on the one strut were badly formed, I had to replace them with ones from a strut I replaced on my SUV. If I hadn't had to do that it would have been 5 stars.

      Install couldn't have been any simpler. Instructions were easy to follow. Everything lined up on my 17 GT perfectly. My only regret is not installing these before the Corsa CAI. This is a MUST HAVE for any and all S550 owners. Thank you American Muscle!!

      Best hood struts for S550 Mustang

      I originally tried MMD hood struts, but that required both nuts to be removed from the hood mounting bracket, causing my hood to be misaligned. Returned the MMD’s and bought these Redline Tuning struts, what a difference! Easier install only one nut per side needs to be removed and quality products, drilling the battery cover is done in seconds with the included step drill bit. I love these hood struts one of my favorite easy mods, these black ones look a lot better too than the chrome elite series. Thank you American Muscle and Redline Tuning!

      Great fit.

      Figment was great I didn’t have issues with one end of the piston. The clamping clip folded in on itself while installing it. I got a screw driver and got it slightly pulled out. I would say the metal was easy to bend and could have been a defective or weak point. Otherwise it was a great product.
