Part was just as the picture shown..Great quality..Must buy part with stock or aftermarket hood..Fiber glass hoods need lower pressure gas shocks..Call up before ordering and they will take care of it 1,2,3..Very beefy..Well worth every penny..My new vendor for my Cobra needs..Thanks

3 Stars   Good but not great.

I think this product is a good design and I especially like that it gets rid of the hood prop rod. At the same time, giving a modern look and getting function up to date w/ modern vehicles out there. HOWEVER, I am not happy w/ it's functionality. I have to assist the hood all the way up and when up, it tries to come back down once I release it. I hold it again and then it stays. It does not instill confidence that it will not fall on me or anyone else looking under the hood. I will probably look into getting stronger shocks. Once that's done I'm sure it will function correctly. Just disappointed it's not right the first time. Even still I like the set up and will keep it once I change the shocks to stronger ones.
From LatemodelRestoration.com®: We apologize that you are having problems with your hood supports. Please expect a cal from a customer service representative on the matter shortly.

1 Stars   Poor follow thru

Image uploaded by Chris  C. I think the idea is awesome but dang the fitment sucks. I ended up having my body guy try to make these work and they won't. The shocks keep pushing my good up and forward when it's closed. Cost me 3 hours of body shop time to end up with the prop rod still.

5 Stars   MRT Hood Struts
By on 7/30/2014
Image uploaded by Tracy S. One of the best and easiest upgrades for any car. If, like most of us, you're tired of working around the prop rod, this is $90 well spent.

The instructions are clear and concise. Remove four bolts, bolt in the mounts, re-tighten, and attach the struts. MRTs struts hold the hood slightly higher than with the rod and are not stiff. Plus, when raising the hood, they are designed to slow at the top end so as not to stress the mounting points for the struts.

Overall, a very excellent product from MRT. I like them so much, I'm buying another set for my other fox.

4 Stars   Work great, but need to adjust hood
By on 4/24/2014
Installed these on my 91 LX. Fit is great. Easy to install, but only issue is they push the hood off alignment. No problem. Loosen the bolts and adjust the hood so it is lined up correct, but once that was done one side of the hood is sitting slightly higher than the other side. I've played with it a few times trying to get it exact, but no luck so far. Looks great when the hood is up though and I would recommend. Just need to figure out the alignment.

4 Stars    Great Fit / Good Quality!

Very easy to install. This will get that annoying hood prop out of your way while working in the engine bay. The hood struts do their job as intended but I would feel more comfortable if the hood lifted up on its own, after the halfway point. This is compared to my other vehicles with factory hood struts. Installing stronger struts in the future would make me feel a bit more confident just in case one of the two struts failed in the future.

Image uploaded by David R. I bought these and unfortunately I got a defective set of shocks. I spoke with jay walling about my problem via prompt email. He and LMR remedied the issue by listening to me and sending me a new set. Now have no problems w/ the new set I was sent. I am now enjoying the look and function. Thanx LMR and Jay for keeping the customer happy.

5 Stars   Best Upgrade Yet for my 1984
By on 12/5/2014
The kit was complete instructions easy to understand. Complete installation took about 15 minutes and they work fantastic.

Working space under the hood is so much better without bumping into the hood rod.

Props to the MRT team!

I'm very happy with the product. Be aware that these struts were designed to work with the factory cc plates. I had to modify the brackets to clear my maximum motorsports cc plates on my 86 mustang. Not a big deal though.

Upgraded to a steel cowl hood. This hood strut kit from MRT when on in a snap and cleaned up the look under the hood by eliminating that ugly in the way pro rod. Makes it a lot easier to work under the hood.

It's a great way to eliminate the factory hod prop! Very easy to install with simple hand tools. Did require some re-adjustment of the hood.
