Mustang Fitment: 2015 (15), 2016 (16), works with your stock, or Cervini hoods.
Once installed, the struts look factory, since they ate just solid black with no stickers. The negative and reason for a 3 is because the brackets that mount to the fender bolts do not fit. As you can see in the attached photo, I had to modify and remove a notch on each. The spot where the bracket mounts has a grove on the fenderwell where it should fit, only the bracket does not line up. It is a half inch back from the spot, which is where there is a small flare that stops the bracket from fitting. The photo is one modified next to the other as it came. I would appreciate LMR/SVE looking into this and updating the design and sending a new set of brackets. Secondly, unlike the previous hood struts, thsee only mount to one hood bolt versus 2 which allows the hood to wobble about a quarter of an inch. I will have to add a small bumper in between the hood and the bracket to eliminate this. All things considered, it looks nice, just disappointed in the fitment.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Does its job
Eustacio S. on
Does exactly what its suppose to do elminate hood prop. Only problem didnt come with instructions. Not a very difficulty thing to put together but still. Had to make a few adjustments to make sure plates dont hit anything when closing the hood. For the price its good but if you want show quality than spend alittle more for the other products that require drilling. Like I said it does its purpose
