Hi. Is this product compatible with the active hood system installed on export vehicles?

  • But I did it. U need to cut around 0.5 cm of the longer mount and it works great! Is worth to do it not for easy openning but for stability in a high speed. 2015 mustang hood has a tendency to wobble on the speeds over 160 km or when driving in a strong wind. NOW IS ROCK SOLID, much better feel and much more confidence . This is most important factor to consider.

    Great Kit!!

    The only thing a bit unnerving is the hood seem to bounce a little bit when it fully opens I don't know if that's the best way to describe it it just isn't a completely fluid opening.

    Very good product

    I gave it four stars because getting the lower mounts to stay in place while tightening was a real pain. For the most expensive strut kit on the marrket, I expected better. I also noticed if you let the hood open itself without holding/guiding it with your hand the hood will bounce a little once it hits the top position. Very little things, but like I said, expected better for the price point. I bet the cheaper options out there function just as well.

    Great Purchase...Should have been Standard

    Purchasing my Mustang I knew I wanted to get rid of the old/dated look of the hood prop so I began searching around for hood struts. After seeing many reviews the Steeda Kit seemed the best fit. Installation wasn't terrible however I would say the directions given in the Box are not the best and left some vagueness when it came to certain steps. A negative note would be the fact that the struts didn't have the Steeda name on them but where there in sticker form which on my passenger side has some bubbling. Are the most expensive hood strut out in the market from what I could see. But as far as functionality its top notch and those small negatives shouldn't sway a potential customer from buying them.

    Wrong part.

    Although the passenger side strut installed and works well the driver side hood bracket that came with the kit has the ball joint on the opposite side and looking out instead of in. After looking at the Steeda installation video I realized I was sent the wrong driver side hood bracket. I installed it anyway and it works but does not look right when compared to the passenger side strut assembly.

    Steeda Hood Strut Kit

    The install was not difficult at all. The only thing that took time was to cut a hole in the battery cover for the hood strut on the passenger side. Took me about an hour or so for the installation. Someone with more experience tinkering on the mustang would probably be able to do it much faster.

    Great item

    This has been a nice little addition for the price. It's going to come in handy while working under the hood as well as for show. Seems to work fine, does get more speed towards the top and puts tension to stop. Little up down movement that could have been designed better.

    THE STEEDA HOOD STRUTS WORK GREAT. INSTALLTION WAS NO PROBLEM. THE ONLY THINK THAT TOOK ANY TIME WAS CUTTING A PLACE IN THE BATTERY COVER FOR THE STRUT BRACKET. IT SURE IS GREAT TO NOT HAVE TO USE THE PROP ROD.

    Best Investment. Ford should have done this at the Factory

    Great Product. Easy to install. Had to drill hole in plastic battery cover. I am actually going to slot the plastic cover so I will not need to remove the strut to remove the battery cover.

    Looks great! Works great! But was it new?

    When the package came I was happy as can be. When I opened the box to find what looked like used parts, it was a real bummer. Nothing in the package looked new. Every wrapper was cut open and the four mounts had black paint chipped off. Its like walking into a walmart and buying something new only to realize later that the item was previously used and re-stocked for re-sell. First time for everything, right?!.. ...But, after inspection, everything fits and works great. The struts took 30 minutes to install and 5 minutes to paint over the chipped paint. (paint or powder coat, Don't know, I hit it with Rustoleum black and it looks new again). Hopefully my following reviews on the rest of my AM purchases will be more uplifting.

    Should have been on the car from the factory

    Nice touch to the underside of the hood. No more prop rod to fuss with. Windshield washer line retainer clip does not fit tight enough in the hole provided on the passenger side bracket. Hole should be smaller so clip is tighter. Easier to show my students what they need to check under the hood of their cars. I'm a driving instructor.
