I installed the Redline bolt on hood strut kit today. Took all of 10 minutes. No removal of hood hings bolts and alignment issues. I was surprised at how much "power" these cylinders have. The hood actually raised itself once past the 1/4 mark. Instructions were really clear and in color too. Well worth the money.
I have a new 2013 Mustang 5.0, the first time that I raised my hood was after I had driven it a while, the hood rod was hot enough to burn. I ordered the Redline Elite hood kit, dropped one of the brackets into the never to be found area of my hood. I contacted Redline and they had me a replacement bracket in my mailbox within three days. It only takes a few minutes to install, especially after I decided to completely remove the goofy looking sound tube. They raise the hood perfectly, now no need to have a goofy looking rod sticking right up in the middle of the engine bay. Well worth the money and very little time.
Ordered my Redline Tuning Hood QuickLIFT System & couldn't be happier. These hood support kits are the best I have seen in a long time are very easy to install (took me less than 10 minutes). What I really like is that they don’t require you to unbolt the hood which can cause alignment problems like some other kits. They look and feel like an OEM part and have gotten many compliments at car shows. Say goodbye to bumping prop rod & have hood falling on you when working under it! These are a MUST if you plan on doing mods under the hood. Money very well spent! Thanks Redline Tuning for making an awesome product and thanks to CJ for getting them shipped out quickly!
