This Redline Tuning Bolt-In QuickLIFT PLUS Hood Strut Kit is manufactured to different specifications for each individual vehicle application. Exclusive end-of-force dampening slows the rate of extension over the final few inches of operation which creates a fluid, smooth lifting and closing process and also eliminates any stress that might have otherwise been imparted on the hood. These hood struts will lift and firmly hold the hood in its raised position.

After the installation of these Redline Tuning hood struts, you will never have to worry about the wind, or a limb of your own, bumping the prop rod and getting your fingers crushed and caught under the collapsing hood. This kit keeps the prop rod from obstructing the view of your clean engine bay as well as ensures it stays open until you want it closed. The two black, e-coated gas springs that lift and hold your hood without the need for the poorly placed prop rod are a welcome addition under the hood of anyone’s 2005-2014 Mustang.

*For use on stock hoods ONLY!

Works as advertised
The struts and brackets were easy to put on. Looks great
James September 19, 2014
Great Product
This is the simplest addition I have ever done to my Mustang. It took about ten minutes to install this lift kit. As a previous rater noted, I wonder why Ford didn't simply add this convenience to its new cars, as they did with the trunk struts.
The struts appear to be very well build and sturdy, and the hood lifts with the least exertion.

Great service and delivery times by CJ Pony Parts. It was shipped in a protective hard cardboard tube inside a substantial cardboard box. Their shipping method made it unlikely that this unit could be damaged in shipment.

Thanks for the good buying experience.

Great product
I received the hood struts in two days asI only live an hour away. The installation instructions were very good and the actual time it took to install them was less than 30 minutes. That does not include the time I invested in painting the lower black bracket to nearly match my ruby red car color.

The struts work and I am happy with them.
Major Dennis September 11, 2014
What a great add-on to my 2010 Convertible. This was the easiest update I ever made on my cars. At first I thought the struts were not working properly as I tried to compress the rods by hand, pressing as hard as I could against them. But, I now understand that the weight of my hood would be sufficient to make them work.

The install took about ten minutes with the socket/wrenches that are suggested. They work like a charm. As others have noted, I wonder why this couldn't be standard equipment installed by Ford, as are the trunk struts, but I guess Ford's cost consciousness came into play.

I was very happy with CJ Pony Parts and their order and shipping excellence. They came in protective tube inside a very substantially heavy box. There was no possibility they would be damaged.

Hoodstruts are GREAT
Installed these struts in about 20 minutes. These replaced another manufacturers strut kit that was creating a bulge in the hood right above the front strut mount bracket. I tried everything to repair this and the thing that finally did the job was the Redline Hood Strut kit. The bulge is gone and the hood works great. Very easy installation. I am very satisfied.

great product
Nice product. Very easy to install. As mentioned in another review the relocation of the sound tube to the underside of the
fender looks crappy. But then again it is only the sound tube. Very satisfied with product and delivery.

Looks great
Struts were a snap to install!
Only problem that came up was the relocation of
Sound tube. They want to to locate it under from where is was mounted
Ok that works, but looks like crap.
If you file or grind top the top of the mounting area, then mount it underneath with the cushion in between the bracket and the metal and it looks a lot better. It's a bit tricky but it can be done.

By Bill Tumas: With all the advancements made under the hood of the newest Mustang, for some reason Ford still chooses to hold that up with an old-school prop rod. Thankfully, it's an easy problem to fix. Today we're going to show you how to install this Redline tuning no- drill hood strut kit on our 2013 Gotta Have It Race car. The kit comes with two strut assemblies as well as the four mounting brackets. What makes this unique is it uses all factory mounting holes as well as mounting hardware requiring no drilling, and no removal of your hood hinge bolts. For this installation you'll need a 3/8 ratchet, a 10 mm socket, and a 1/2-inch socket. We've got to use this one last time.

The lower bracket's going to mount to this fender bolt right here. The uppers go in this existing hole in your hood. This is the upper mount. Basically, you're going to want to loosen it up to the point that this washer is still hanging on, but has enough space so we can slide it through the hole. We want to put it through on an angle, and then pull against the hood while you tighten it up. We're going to get it just hand-tight for now, and what you'll want to do before you actually tighten it up with your wrench, you'll want to slide it toward the outside of the hood as far as possible, and then tighten it down. This will keep the strut from interfering with your shock tower when your hood is closed.

Now we're going to remove our fender bolt, install our bracket. The brackets are not side specific. If your car still has the factory air tube that goes from the cold air kit to the firewall, there's going to be a bracket that's going to mount right here. You'll have to take the bracket off the top studs and move it to the bottom to clear that stud.

Our last step is to install the strut itself. We're going to place the end of the strut over the ball on the end of the bracket. We're going to make sure the body of the strut is facing upward keeping any condensation out. Just place it over and press it into place, and then you'll want to repeat the process on the other side. Now for our last step, we're going to remove our factory prop rod, and our installation's complete.

We're going to try out our new hood struts, pull it up about halfway and then just let it go. It will slow down at the top. That's what Ford should have done when they built these cars. Installation is pretty straight forward, should take you no more than about 20 minutes. You'll be back on the road in no time.
