    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.
    By on 8/5/2014
    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 LMR.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.

    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.

    By on 8/28/2014
    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.

    By on 8/20/2014
    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.

    4 Stars   Great product, weak instructions
    By on 5/11/2015
    After reading some of the other reviews and Q&A on this site about the hood alignment problems I went ahead and ordered these anyway. I'm glad I did, the product itself is great, well made and fits like a glove. The instructions are almost non-existent and while it's not complicated to install, I would've liked to know that I was installing it right the first time. I actually referred to the customer photos posted on LRS for this product to make sure I had it right. From there, installation literally took less than 10 minutes. Getting the hood lined back up however, was another two hour affair of tweaking and adjusting. A note on hood alignment: If you measure your fender and door gaps with a feeler gauge, this may not be the product for you. The problem isn't the hood struts themselves, the problem is the flimsy sheet metal the hood hinges are mounted to. The firewall structure isn't meant to be placed under the kind of tension these struts create. Even when the hood is closed, the struts are pushing it up and forward. I have an H.O. Fibertrends hood that fit like OEM before, but now even after adjusting the hinges as far as they'll go, I still have about a 3/8" gap between the cowl and the rear edge of the hood. I can live with it however, the function of the struts vs. the prop rod is worth it in my opinion and this is a driver, not a show car. Buyer beware however: know exactly what you're getting before you spend the money.

    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.

    hood doesn't even come close to staying up, very disappointed, looked like a good product, had many good reviews , install went fine, torqued all my fender/hood bolts to specs, followed instruction,etc to give a profesional install, but i'm now with the other 2 poor complaints this product had. need to call latemodel resto to return in am, guess I'll go back to the old prop rod

    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.

    Easy install and a great no drill option for hood struts, I did have to make some slight adjustments for the hood to pop open as easy as it did before. These hood lifts make opening easy and safe from any prop fails!

    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.

    Unfortunately as Mrt themselves told me they have had encountered problems with fitment on vehicles that have aftermarket camber caster plates mine are maximum motorsports so the decision to return them was easy, performance over looks.
    Jay in customer service the supervisor made the return completely painless .Received refund and have already made a purchase through LMR .Thank you guys hope this review helps alleviate any miss purchases due to camber caster plates

    4 Stars    Great Fit / Good Quality!
    By on 2/23/2015
    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.

    By on 4/17/2016
    Bought these for a 91 mustang. Works great but would throw the alignment of the hood off and raise the black of the hood up after I adjusted the hood hinge down on the cowl panel, hood fits great and works great. If you have issues with the hood popping up in the back try moving the hinge down.
