Wanted a high quality solution to get rid of the prop rod. Other bolt on models either didn't fit the GT500 or received bad reviews so I was about to order the Shelby kit and drill holes. This kit fits well, is clearly marked without overbearing advertising (after I peeled the stickers from the shock tubes), and was an easy 15 minute installation. It works / looks great on the car and being painted factory color looks OEM.
These are great, and easy to install, although you really need 2 people to get them installed. They work perfectly and give a much cleaner look under the hood.
I got the struts in Racer Red and they matched my 2012 GT500 perfectly. I was impressed by the ease of installation. Believe me, I am no mechanic! Also, I really liked the fact that the struts require no drilling, everything bolts on and looks like factory-installed hardware. The entire install took me less than 20 minutes.

Money is no object for my GT500. I searched abroad and found that this strut kit was the best looking, best for the money kit available in the market. I was impressed with the quality and ease of installation. It looks frigging awesome and it works like a dream!!! Good job CPC!!!
For my 2011 Mustang GT. Quality is excellent. Pre-painted Race Red is near-perfect. Install is very simple, and no drilling. Works well, but I thought they would have a bit more power on lifting. Never-the-less, I'm very happy with the product, the price, and the final install. Huge improvement over the factory prop-rod.
This was probably one of the simplest mods I've done to the GT500. I was also glad that this kit didn't require drilling any holes into the hood or body of the car. This hood lift looks like it belongs on the car, and thank goodness the prop rod is gone!
Bought these for my 2012 Boss. The color is slightly off, Race Red, but not noticeable unless you are staring hard. Fit was near excellent. Great product.
I bought these painted to match my 2011 Shelby GT500. Driver's side fit with no problems. Passenger side did not. The L shaped bottom bracket was either too fat or the hole was not drilled in the correct location on the botttom supporting bracket. After removing the fender bolt, it would not lay in position - the hole was way off. I had to do some serious grinding on the bottom of the bracket to remove the pain as well as about 20% of the metal to get it to fit properly (like the driver's side did). The final result looks good, but I should not have needed to grind like that
In shopping around I found that this kit was the best option and, best for the money kit I could find. I was impressed with the quality and ease of installation. I was not disappointed and they were right it looks great, no drilling and it works perfect, great upgrade for the money! I now see it is on sale so that is even a better bargain. Good job CPC!!!
Glad to see that hood prop go! Too bad Ford couldn't think of it. The colored strut kit makes it blend right in, for a clean look, and it will be alot safer working under the hood. Thanks CJ Pony!
A++ Very easy install. Instrutions plan and simple. installed in less than 30 min.
easy to install, and good quality!
I wanted to get rid of the cheap factory prop rod but I didn't want to drill into my hood. These are the perfect alternative. Easy to install and work great. OEM color is a plus.
