Rated 4 out of 5 by from Redline tuning elite hood struts These hood struts are a nice addition to my '15 GT (should have been factory as it's in the manual). Having a slight issue with the drivers side fender bracket shifting position. Passenger side is solid. I modified the battery cover by cutting a slot from the bracket to fender side rail to ease removal of the cover. Design could be improved by creating an indexing point on the ball bracket. Therefore only 4 stars. Otherwise I dig the part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It comes with an attitude! In Taiwan, Saab drivers like to open the hood when arrive destination to help dissipate heat and show the modifications of engine. It has become a tradition (especially in car gathering). The original prop-rod seems like lack of the momentum. After installed the QuickLIFT hood strut, it surely comes with an attitude! One thing it should be mentioned that I made a mistake buying this one(Only compatible with US spec. Mustang), Therefore, I had to buy another one for Euro spec( For the non-domestic Mustang)..The upper-end bracket is different. Make sure you are placing the right one. And like they say, the installation was very easy. Can be done by yourself with right tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redline Hood Struts Being from Ireland and driving a RHD mustang I took a small chance ordering these struts as my battery is on the opposite side of the car to USA models, anyway I shouldn't have been concerned as it fitted perfectly, 12 minutes in total to install, even the little white drill template works here, just flipped over of course.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would love these if the brackets were right Brackets won't line up on my 2017 GT Mustang. As you can see in the pictures the washer fluid line will not go into the hole pre-drilled in the bracket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and beautiful! For some weird reason, Ford likes to install ugly cumbersome prop rods under the hoods of the new Mustangs instead of pressurized struts which are simply better. Well, the answer for me is the Redline Tuning Hood Strut Kit that answers all the above problems. These struts conveniently lift the hood once the secondary latch is released and you raise the hood approximately three inches. The strut's pneumatic pressure then lifts the hood themselves well clear of the top of the engine bay giving you more room than the old junky prop rod did to work on your engine. I got the stainless steel versions that are simply gorgeous to look at. They really enhance the look under the hood and adds to the show car quality should you decide to make your Pony into a show car. The struts were very easy to install. Took me about 45-minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The way it should have came from the factory Like I said above, this is the way it should have came from the factory. A $40k+ car shouldnt have a prop rod...lol Anyway, I didnt give it five stars because I did have to do a tad bit of drilling and it wasnt direct bolt on as I expected. The problem was on the passenger side hood bracket. No matter how much prying I did I could not get it to line up with the hole for the washer push pin. Easy enough to fix, just ran a small bit through it and moved on. I would still recommend the kit since it looks good and gets the rod out of my way when I am under the hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect The stainless hood struts really stand out and works great. I've always used the prop rod on the mustans or owned and after installing these redline elite hood struts I'll never go back.

After installation, my hood alignment is just a little off. Is there any way to adjust the alignment?

Asked by: philrob51
There isn't much of an adjustment on those year mustangs. You could try to loosen the hood hinge nuts and try to align it.

How does this compare to the Ford Performance hood strut kit? I see the Ford gas struts are rated at 90lbs (I assume total and not per strut), is there a spec to be found for this kit? Any info on stiffness or comparative reliability? Thank you!

Asked by: Kengb
You could not go wrong with either kit.

Hi, will these hood struts can be installed on a Canadian Ecoboost 2016 Mustang. I do not know if the car has the hood safety feature.

Asked by: Fizou
As far as we know the canada model has the same hood. These should work without issues.
