Received it in a timely fashion. Install was very straight forward and simple. Easy to install even with one person, although recommended two person install.

Seriously, these work fine and are well built. Easy to install. No need for carbon fiber stickers on the piston, I mean c'mon, these are as functional as it gets. The real reason to use these us to get rid of the hood prop on the front. Great job!

Fantastic improvement on whiteout. Easy to install. Cover the holes on the baseline where you install the locking spring. It slip my finger and went to the hole

I got the product pretty quickly, and it was really easy to install. I love it so far, always wanted to do it for my car since the. Hood OEM holder was a pain in the ass, always in the way this is way better clearance. Thank you 86speed.
Easy and good looking

This item was cheap yet very high quality made. The easiest mod installation ever for my BRZ. I strongly recommend everyone who has a BRZ/FRS/86 to grab one for themselves.
Needs to be OEM! Awesome product!

Bought these because I open up my engine bay more than I'd like. Just so handy, I couldn't see why these aren't oem. Perfect just to have as an option. Worth every penny, definitely worth the buy. Props hood up more than factory with the stick. Very very easy to install. Took about 5min or so.
Amazing Product, Should've Been OEM

Purchased these during the Black Friday sale and at first I was a bit skeptical compared to other brands but I couldn't be happier. As the description states, the 86 should've come with these stock. The sound of the closing and opening of the hood is beautiful. Only issue is the lack of instructions as the video is a bit outdated as there aren't any included washers. In addition, the pins weren't labeled too well but it only took a matter of 30 seconds to figure out how they worked. Overall, amazing product, definitely one of my favorite modifications.
Very well designed product

There are much cheaper shocks available through several sources online. But I don't regret paying full freight for these shocks. When I open the hood of my BRZ it moves swiftly but very smoothly with no rebound at the top. Closing it requires deliberate pressure and a flick of the wrist at the end. It will not fall down by any accident. The strength of these pistons is perfectly tuned for the weight of my hood. Couldn't be happier.

These hood shocks are a must for every 86 owner Have you ever had the wind catch your hood and blow back and almost break the windshield. Plus they are just super cool.
