RedLine Tuning Mustang Hood QuickLIFT ELITE Hood Strut System 21-11016-03 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

Or

MMD Mustang Bolt On Hood Strut Kit w/ Mustang Lettering - Black 41447 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping


Which is the better set?

I have had a set of Shelby/Scott Drake ones on there but the struts keep going out on me . They keep replacing them for free but I'm tired of it and want a set that is going to last me a while.


Boss, get this set made by Ford Racing, now Ford Performance. 05-14 hood strut lift kit M-16826-M, it has 90 lbs of resistance. I had it for a while without any problems. I have a fiberglass hood.

He is talking about "Hood Struts" not suspension.
Im an idiot, reading is comprehensive lol
Haha....I've actually switched to Lakewood Drag 50/50 shocks and 90/10 struts. That's nice that Viking finally made a strut for our cars. I always liked their stuff and am currently looking at their dampeners for my coil over set up on the FireChicken.

Those look pretty nice. Your fiberglass hood, is it heavier than the stocker? I only put up those choices because I was going to place an order with AM and that was what they had available. I will see if JEGS has the same part, I have to pay sales tax with Summit Racing because they built a new warehouse in Sparks NV. Maybe I can get my harness from JEGS too.

I got mine here (New 05 14 Ford Racing Mustang Hood Lift Strut Damper Shock Set No Drill Kit | eBay My hood is a Trufiber fiberglass hood, have no idea how much it weights, but the struts have no problem holding or lifting it.
