  1. Super fast install

    Posted by Alex on 22nd Dec 2017

    Watch the install video; these are super simple. It's nearly 0 degrees where I live (Fahrenheit) and these spring to life still! So nice to work without fear of bumping the stupid hood prop

  2. Love these!

    Posted by Jason H on 13th Dec 2017

    This is a great way to noticeably upgrade your interior! Install is very easy, and pieces are quality....not plastic. The only reason not 5 stars is because (1) don’t come in red anymore but I bought silver and painted them, and the result is actually very good, and (2) 3m adhesive on one of the pointer covers proved to be not that strong, and pointer cover fell off and was rolling around inside the gauge cluster, Not a HUGE problem, but had to remove the gauge cluster and blur a small dab of Elmer’s in the inside of the cover.

  3. Great product

    These are wonderful! Do exactly what they are designed to do. Have really great lift. The hood almost goes vertical.
    4 stars for not coming with any instructions in the box. They have a nice install video on the website, but it would have been nice to have something in the box, or at least label which one is left and which is right.

  4. Works as advertised

    Installation was really easy. Once it is installed, it blends in just like it is factory, It works as intended!

  5. Great Deal

    Posted by Marsh on 7th Dec 2017

    These are solid hood struts for <$50. Install takes 10min, can't go wrong! Just be sure to go slow with the clips, if you drop one in your engine bay it's gone forever.

  6. Perfect fit

    Posted by John Hill on 6th Dec 2017

    Fast and easy install. Works and looks great. Goodbye hood prop bar..

  7. Looks great and works well

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Dec 2017

    Overall product works great is more than substantial enough to support the hood.
    I do wish the brackets had additional mounting hardware as the single mounting point provides some play in the bracket. The locking pins are fairly difficult to remove and then reinstall, and can easily be lost if you are not careful.

  8. Works awesome

    Posted by Brennan on 2nd Dec 2017

    The hood struts only took a few minutes to install and make opening the hood so much more simple. My only issue is that the 86speed decals on them fell off after only one week of being on the car.

  9. Best quality on the market.

    get rid of that gross hood prop.and pick up these high quality hood shocks.

  10. Quick install looks factory

    Posted by Mark Garcia on 26th Aug 2017
