Customer Reviews

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!

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.
