Product Description

Lower Tension Spring
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!

    5 Stars   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!!!

    4 Stars   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.

    5 Stars   Perfect part for a annoying problem!
    By on 2/2/2015
    First off super easy install if you can get the pin out easily. Mine drove out easily on a vice with a punch and a good hammer. Only had to pull out the wheel well and managed to work the old one out and new one in easily. Perfect fit and now I don't have to hold my door so it doesn't close all the time or open wide open.

    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.

    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.

    It works fine when the car is level, but it does not work very well on a slope. The original 24 year old passenger side spring works better than this replacement.

    My door no longer attacks me when I am trying to get out of the car! Yay! The installation was a bit of a pain, but that is what you get when you are working inside of a fender. As reported in here in another review, the spring does not seem to have as much tension as the factory spring it replaces, but it does get the job done. There is an instructional video that shows you how to install the spring. Watch it! The only special tool you will need is a Dremel or similar device for grinding down the rivet in order to removed the old spring parts.
