    5 Stars   Works great!!
    By on 12/27/2014
    Image uploaded by David A. Great product at a great price. Installation literally took less than 15 minutes once I gathered all the tools. Hard to believe how much more open the engine compartment looks now without that prop rod in the way. The brackets are sturdy and the struts have just the right amount of push for my Cervini's hood. Be sure to read and follow the directions to the letter, especially if you have an aftermarket cowl hood, since putting the hood brackets at the locations for a stock hood will raise it too far and the cowl will hit the windshield wiper.

    By on 4/1/2014
    This kit is a great improvement over the stock hood prop. Makes my car feel like a newer model. Kit was great, complete with all instructions and measurements to make this install a piece of cake. Worked great on my Fiberglass hood as well.

    Image uploaded by Jorge H. These shocks are great for a clean underwood look without the pesky prop rod looming over the front of my car! I took my time and read the instructions carefully, measured twice, drilled once! Perfect fit. Thanks, Latemodel!

    5 Stars   Nice low cost hood stuts
    By on 7/20/2015
    Image uploaded by Kurt T. I just installed these on a Cervini heat extractor hood over the weekend.

    Pretty simple install once you get over drilling holes in your car and doing the measurements a couple times.

    No complaints. I installed the struts as for a stock hood and the small rise on my fiberglass hood clears the wipers and everything fits just fine.

    Also, big thanks to LMR for shipping me a second set of these hood struts since the first set ordered with the hood either didn't arrive or were nipped by one of the guys at the body shop were I got the hood painted and installed.

    Image uploaded by Otha S. Decided to install the Quicklift Hood Supports today. Install was as easy as following the color instructions supplied with the package. Measure twice, drill once. Less than an hour to install. Work great, look good under the hood of my '83 Ford Fairmont Futura Coupe.

    3 Stars   Heed caution with fitment notes
    By on 4/12/2017
    While I cannot judge the product because it did not work for me, I highly advise to heed the notes on hood fitment!

    I have a Boss Inc Y2K cobra R hood and these will in no way shape and form work with this hood due to a more rounded off frame.
    Some important info missing from the manufacturer notes are also that the brackets that go on the hood are @ 120* angle and not 90* as one may assume looking at pictures.
    As per LMR when I called for return they only "Support these" on Cervini's and Stock hoods. So if you have any other aftermarket hood, proceed with caution on fitment and compare your rails to stock before ordering.

    3 Stars   Will not fit Boss Inc hood with MM plates
    By on 5/11/2017
    After not getting answers from Todd at Boss Inc and Andrea at Redline tuning, I decided to gamble and get a set of these to try with my Y2K cobra R hood.
    The angle on the rails of the hood are about 150*, which the angle on the brackets are 120*. I bent the brackets to contour the hood more and the next issue was clearance of the tubes. There is no way shape or form these things clear the fender or the MM caster/camber plates.
    Also the support from Redline was poor at best. Their instructions are more based for a fox as well. I messed with them for hours before packing them up and selling them.

    There are so many different types out there and figured I liked this kit. Bought it and it was easy to install. Now when I work on my car I can lift the hood and not worry about the hood prop. Hood stays up great.

    Easy instruction and easy installation. Everyone should install this hood shock kit. Love watching the hood lift itself. So far one of the best mods I've done to my mustang. Bolted up to my 3 inch cowl hood.

    Install was easy, they fit good, and have worked flawlessly ever since. The car had sat all winter with the hood up, but when I won't to close the hood the struts still worked like butter.

    Followed instructions and lifters did the job. Got the hood up and actually further out of the way than the old prop rod.
