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!

Redline Tuning Hood Strut Kit QuickLIFT PLUS Bolt-In 2005-2014 is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Great Glad ford didn't install these from the factory. Cause there are some many to choose from. I chose the Red Lines specifically for how they mount to the car. The mounts don't take up a lot of room and you don't have to loosen the hood to install them. The look so much better than the prop rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I recently purchased and installed the item HDGL2005-14 REDLINE QUICKLIFT PLUS HOOD STRUT KIT - BOLT-IN and it is an item that is wonderful. Getting rid of the ugly prop rod is a bonus. This is is an item that is super easy to install, took me about 10 minutes and should be included from the factory. I'm sure the cost per vehicle is relatively close to the cost if the prop rid if coming from the factory. Surely the the cost would not be that much of an adder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Replacement Part Bought to replace the archaic hood prop in my 2014 convertible. Haven't installed them yet but they arrived complete and there are good installation videos online. Shipping was timely, given it had to clear through Customs into Canada. Was able to track the progress through the USPS all the way to delivery. Only downside is the currency exchange rate and duties. It would be nice if CJ had a warehouse in Canada to ship from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Install as advertised I saw this product at Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach. The guy was installing these hood struts in the parking lot on the cars in the show. You first purchased them from their show booth area. It literally took him minutes, looked and worked great. It also took me just minutes, looks and works great! Nice clean appearance, no bulky frame brackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have!! Ford should have installed these at the factory! They have an ultra clean oem appearance and eliminate that unsightly prop rod. If you plan on going to any car shows and raising your hood, you have to have these. I installed them this spring before the show season and they are the single best visual investment for the money that you can make!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast shipping. Good quality. I just got the parts. haven't install them yet. Again, I have to wait until spring in Canada. My car is in storage for winter. Shipping was fast, as usual from CJ. The struts look strong and well constructed. Instructions are easy to read and pictures are in full color.

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.
