Product Description

This is the Tension Spring located on your Mustang Lower Door Hinge that the Lower Door hinge Roller rides against to keep the door open. It fits both RH & LH sides & is sold individually. After so many years of use, it is not uncommon for this Tension Spring to break. Also, this spring is not included with new replacement hinges so you'll need this to go along with your hinge replacement. Don't forget to replace that worn Lower Door Hinge Roller while you're there!

Proudly Made in the USA from the Ford Original Tooling!

  A Nice Touch on Any Older Foxbody
By on 3/15/2014
The hinge tension spring on my driver door was broken when I bought the car despite it being very well cared for its entire life. I bought these to replace both the passenger side and driver side as I figured the passenger door couldn't be far away from snapping as well. The install went well, just remove the plastic fender well skirt and you can get right at it. The driver side door no longer swings free. My only complaint, and this is more just personal preference, is that these springs are definitely softer than factory as my passenger door no longer has quite as distinct a point where it will either spring closed or open. I liked it stiffer like the factory springs but these are still a great fix for broken door springs.

  Work Great!!!

These are not the easiest to remove but not too difficult the average wrench turner can't handle. Once the inner fender well is removed you have adequate access to grind off the pin, then pry off the old one. Installed they do the job and no more door swinging closed on you!!! Hard to beat this for the money and the aggravation factor every time you enter or exit your Mustang!!!

  Perfect Fit

I installed these when installing the hinge pin kit and the door stays open now. Nice fitment. The videos come in handy, however, don't expect things to always go as smoothly as they do in the video. I also recommend painting over the part that you grind down to remove the old spring in order to prevent rust.

  Solves that door closing on your leg problem.

These fit well and are fairly simple to install with basic hand tools. This is a lot easier than trying to find a good one at a wrecking yard. Now only if the other hinge parts were available.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I am glad this piece is still available
spring tension seems slightly weaker than the original
that makes it easy to install threw the fender liner access

Somehow the spring on the drivers side was broken so this will put things right. No more worrying about bashing someone's door in the parking lots!
