Good quality, but…
Good quality material, installation is more than easy but in my scenario I had to drill out the hood bracket holes for it to fit. A bit annoying but not terrible. Also chose to zip-tie the wire harness / washer fluid line instead of cutting cowl.

Hood Struts
The fit was a direct fit and installation was a snap. Looks and works amazing. I'm going to order the stabilizer bar for the struts now. Do yourself a favor and do both at the same time. Steeda, the only way to go!!!!!

Fusion Hood Struts
Put these on my 2017 Fusion today. Took a little while to do them. I wanted to do everything right. You just have to move a wire harness and the windshield wiper washer hose. Don't know why I waited 3 years to do this.

Fusion Hood Struts
Super easy install, especially if you follow the instructions given by Steeda. Had mine on in the blistering cold in about 15 minutes! Simple and much more practical than the stock hood prop

Perfect for the 2017 Fusion Sport
Shipped quickly. Install on my Fusion Sport was easy. Advise having an extra set of hands tohelp with the hood. Also, test fit the bolts with the brackets that fit to the hood. The holes on one of mine, were too small for the bolts and had to drill them out. Very happy with install.

Must Have Item
The hood strut kit from Steeda was a very satisfying purchase. All the parts in the kit are high quality and it all works seamlessly together. This was a very simple install too. If you are a driving enthusiast who enjoys turning a wrench on your vehicle, this kit is a must have.

Installation went easier that I thought. Very glad I don't need the hood prop anymore.

OEM Quality
Not real sure why something similar didn't come standard on Fusions! Great quality and a quick 15 minute installation.

Who wants a hood with s silly metal bar to hold it open? This strut kit is perfect. I'd say it is not as easy as some say to install. Realigning the hood, for example, takes care and a couple attempts to get just right. Re-routing a wire bundle and washer line took care, and studying. I wanted a perfect job and got it. The parts are well made and it works great!

Not even sure why these don't come factory!
This was such an easy install, and it makes all the difference. No more annoying hood prop! I'm not even sure why Ford doesn't install these factory. A recommendation is to trim the cowl to allow the strut cylinders to sit without flexing the cowl when the hood is closed. I feel like all that plastic flexing will be bad news over time.

I love it
Super easy installation. It always bothered me that the Fusion came with a hood prop. This product has made me so happy. It installs perfectly with the Steeda tower brace!

Hood strut kit
LOVE this upgrade! Quality stuff as are all the products from Steeda. NO more silly bar.. Factory should of done this, BUT then we would not have a great group like Steeda.

Easy installation.
The pictures in the installation instructions are too dark to be useful but you don't need them. The installation is not difficult. One suggestion, and this is what I did, is after installing the first hood bracket align it to where you think it should be and snug it down. Then close the hood slowly to the first stop and check the body to hood gap. If you need to close the hood all the way to check the gap do it. If it needs to be adjusted to it now before going to the other bracket and tighten it down before loosening the other side. Repeat the process for the other side.

Steeda hands down
The main reason I wanted to post about my experience between the two hood strut brands was how different they are! Steeda hands down for a few reasons, first I can close my hood again without slamming it and still having the drivers side requiring a forceful palm pushing down on it t close completely. Also the Red Line struts were still in the way a little cause of how they mount, Steeda's angle backwards and out of the way completely.

Very easy to install
Very easy to install, the directions aren't the greatest but you can figure it out. It looks beautiful and classy!

The struts and brackets are quality items and easy to install by anyone with at least some mechanical skills. The Instructions need to say a 10mm socket is required to undo the bolts on the shock tower. (not 13mm) the 13mm socket is needed for the hood hinge nuts.
