Fantastic addition to my '07 GT/CS convertible. Now I don't have to deal with that awful prop rod anymore. Easy effort to open hood and it opens wider so mods and cleaning are a breeze. Although I bought mine used, I could easily justify this little bit of cash for the incredible convenience it brings. The Vista Blue factory color matches perfectly and looks like it belongs.
These Hood struts are nice, they were pre painted my Red Candy Apple Metallic and it matched perfectly. The issue i had with these were that they don't clearly tell you where to relocate the intake sound tube that comes on the 2010 and up mustangs, so i relocated them underneath the original place. Also the big issue was that it has an indented part and it doesn't match up at all, the bolts were perfect but that part was not on mark as they intended it to be. If that indentation was correct then 5 stars no doubt. I also drilled two holes to relocate the windshield wiper hose to run along the new install piece. Looks better than just zip tying it or even letting it hang because it might sag as well. Those who buy this as product, I didn't mark mine, i just unbolted the bottom screw and put the new piece on the hood and replaced the bolt so that it would stay in place so it saved me some time as well.
Ordered my CPC NXT GENERATION HOOD LIFT SUPPORT KIT in performance white & couldn't be happier. Very easy to install, paint matched perfect. Do recommend an extra set of hands but can be done by yourself. Say goodbye to bumping prop rod & have hood falling on you when working under it! Money well spent!
fit was perfect. install was easy. great product and shipped quick. Great dealing with cj pony parts.
Purchased the bare aluminum struts for my Ingot Silver GTCS. Not a perfect match, but still look almost like an OEM part. Struts like these are a MUST if you plan on doing mods under the hood. Gets that prop rod out of the way and lifts the hood higher. Installation was easy. I did just one hinge bolt at a time (as Luke from FL did) and hood/hinge alignment stayed true. For the washer line, I zip-tied it to the the barrel of the strut after the install. As for the IST tube, after unbolting it, I put the bolt back in the fender and just lined up the IST mounting hole on the underside. It's not bolted in, but the tube is stiff enough that it won't go anywhere, and by not shaving off any of the factory plastic to get it bolted in, it can be put back to stock. That's what I think are great about the CPC struts, no drilling holes or other permanent mods so you can always put it back to stock! Highly recommended.
