Whether you want to spend weekends working on your fifth-gen Ford Mustang engine or showcasing it at shows and meets, our Mustang SN95 hood struts let you do so with style. MRT Hood Struts for 1994-2004 Mustangs eliminate the need for the factory hood prop rod and give a clean, functional "performance look" to your underhood appearance. Our Original No-Drill Hood Struts give show car Mustangs an impressive look that sets them apart from the crowd, helping the Mustang Get Noticed!

These hood struts are designed to work with the factory OE hood and to reuse existing factory hood attachment points - no drilling is required! You get easy access to the engine bay for maintenance and repairs without any worry of the hood crashing down. And if you ever need to convert the vehicle back to factory stock, it's easy to do so. The heavy-duty rugged design is manufactured with craftsmanship and quality in mind, giving you years of fashionable performance.

Custom Hood Struts with DIY Installation

MRT hood strut brackets are made of high-quality steel for the utmost durability. They come standard with a scuff- and chemical-resistant black powder coat finish. Custom bracket colors are available for an additional fee and come in two options. You can get a Black Carbon Fiber Effect look or a vehicle-matching factory color. Common bracket color codes are listed. If you don't see your vehicle code, select "Factory Paint Code" and add the paint code you want in the order notes. Please allow one to two weeks of lead time for custom-painted hood strut brackets.

It takes 30 minutes or less to install a set of 1994-04 Ford Mustang hood struts using the included hardware and a few common tools. This kit fits all Fox 4 Mustang factory hoods - including the GT, Cobra, Bullitt and Mach 1 - regardless of the engine underneath them. If you have installed an aftermarket hood, call us at 734-455-5807 with the hood's weight so we can calibrate the right cylinders. We still do all development and manufacturing right here in the U.S.!

Application: All 1994-2004 Mustang OE factory hoods (includes 2001 Mustang Bullitt Edition and 2003-2004 Mach 1)

Doesn't Fit:

  • 1994-2004 Aftermarket Hoods - Contact the sales team to determine proper gas strut sizing (provide the hood's weight)
  • Aftermarket caster camber plates may interfere with the MRT hood strut kit geometry

***NOTE: MRT will use the factory paint code and formula to paint custom brackets. However, there is no guarantee of an exact match due to vehicle age, sun exposure, etc.***
