1 Stars   A great way to waste your money
By on 3/19/2017
Just installed these as the cold weather finally broke allowing me to get my car out of storage. Installation is a breeze which is irrelevant as they do not work. My car is bone stock factory and the hood will not stay up. It stays up for 10-15 secs at best and then whacks you in the head. Pistons are obviously garbage and can not hold up a stock steel hood. Buying these is the same as throwing your money out the window. I have bought plenty of items from LMR and everything has always been the highest of quality. That's why I did not hesitate when I saw these. All I can do now is warn my Fox brothers so they do get burned like I did!!!!!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

2 Stars   Doesn't work with Camber Plates
By on 10/13/2016
Would have been nice to know that these don't work with aftermarket camber plates. Waist of an hour and money. If you don't have factory camber then they should work that's why I rated them 3 star...

2 Stars   Not a bolt on part
By on 1/22/2017
First let me say that LMR was very helpful in trying to make this product work for my car. Be aware that these struts will change the geometry of the hood. The struts pushed the hood forward when closed about 1/8 inch and pushed the back of the hood up about the same distance. After adjusting the hood hinges for a while i was unable to get the hood to sit correctly and had to remove the struts. This was on a 1989 LX 5.0.

5 Stars   SVE Hood Strut Kit LMR.com Expert Review!
By on 10/17/2016
I recently installed a new SVE Hood Strut Kit on my 1989 Mustang GT. I am very satisfied with the product quality and ease of installation. There were no holes to drill and the mounting looks factory. There may be some hood height adjustment required after installation. The look is clean and it's nice not having the prop-rod in your way.

These are really easy to install and much better than the prop rods. They worked with my steel hood just fine and look really good. You need to get them!

3 Stars   nice product
By on 1/8/2017
Would love to give this product 5 stars but just like a couple of others have mentioned after installing the rear of the hood sits higher now against the cowl, I've emailed and waiting on a response to see if there is a fix for this, the struts seem to be a little weak, will see what happens in warmer weather, other than that the installation is a breeze and really looks clean

4 Stars   Very Easy Install
By on 12/12/2016
Bought this kit because it was an easy bolt on. Took 15 minutes tops. They work well. The only issue I have is the rear of the hood is now raised up just a whisker when the hood is closed.
It is no longer flush.So far I haven't figured out how to adjust it to make it flush. It is just a little off. Other then that I am happy with the struts.

2 Stars   Great fit ! Shocks no good !
By on 1/14/2017
The kit fit great ! It was a snap to install .
The shocks will not hold my factory hood up and had to leave the rod in. I mean they just don't work !! I guess these kits are a flip of YOUR coin if they work as I see other the same complaints .

Just received 3 days ago, installed 2nd day, went out to my heated building where it,s stored this evening. Opened hood & wouldn,t stay raised. Lift cylinders defective ??? Couldn,t have been from sitting on shelf as this was on BO, apparently due to shipment on boat from CHINA, as it just came in. On recommendation I don,t know as installation & item were excellent if CYLINDERS worked

5 Stars   Awsome Kit and Quick Install...
By on 3/12/2017
Image uploaded by JUAN G. I was tired of woring around the prop rod all the time. When this kit went on sale I jumped on it and lets say its one of the best decisions I made. Super quick install in under 20mins and looks and works grat. Hood does stil just a tad bit higher but no biggie for me since I need the most clearance I can get.

Put them on my 90 LX notch. Took about 5 minutes to install. First set of struts wouldn't hold up the hood. Called customer service and Josh sent a new set out the next day. New ones work great. Thanks LMR
