Application: All 1979-1993 Mustang OE Factory Hood
Doesn't Fit:
  • 1979-1993 Aftermarket hoods - contact the sales team for proper gas strut sizing (Hood weight needed)
  • Some aftermarket Caster Camber Plates may interfere with the MRT hood strut kit
** Sometimes these old Ponies have been driven hard and things don't fit like they use to. Check out the "Tricks for Proper Fox Body Hood Fit" video where MRT shows you a few simple moves to get things working as they should. Also, MRT will use factory paint code and formula to paint custom brackets. There is no guarantee of exact match due to vehicle age, sun exposure, etc. **

5 of 5 hood struts April 27, 2022
Reviewed by: Lonnie from WA  
Just installed a set of hood struts on my 89 mustang gt. It looks so much better and to not have to work around the hood rod. I have a Servini fiberglass hood and with the lighter struts it works perfect.

I can’t tell you how happy I am with these. Just remember to order the correct strut if you have a fiberglass hood. Took me 10-15 minutes to install and a slight hood adjustment.

Cannot brag enough about this product. I went with the recommended 56lb struts from MRT for my 18lb fiberglass hood and this is the perfect accent to my engine bay. Cannot ask for a better product
