  • This is the second set of MMD hood struts I've installed. The last was on my '11 GT, and although that was a very easy install, it did require a bit of work around the sound induction tube. This set went on my '98 Cobra and I can't believe how easy it was. Literally 5 minutes, perfect install. And they work great! Highly recommend if you spend any time at all under your hood.

    With the use and exposure that a hood strut kit will see on a regular basis, material selection and finishing options are critically important. All brackets are produced from a mild steel alloy that maintains its integrity after laser cutting and bending. After thorough cleaning, the parts are all powdercoated a durable DuPont texture black. The next key component is the struts themselves. More specifically, these are referred to as gas springs. Manufactured in the USA, these are of the highest quality and are used by OEMs around the world. These custom valved units (to perfectly match the weight of the BRZ/FR-S hood) are paired with clear zinc hardware and a quick-release ball and socket. Last, but certainly not least, is the included hardware. All hardware is grade 8.8 or higher and black zinc coated for longevity.

These have by far been the best Hood Struts I've ever owned for a car.. I get major wow factor when I have to open my hood for anyone from people at car meets to the friendly mechanics at my local Subaru Dealership. They open the hood far beyond any normal strut I've owned, making maintenance extremely easy on my '07 STi. Instillation took maybe at most 10 minuets for both sides and 10 more minuets of sheer amazingness checking out how beautifully they look and preform. If your looking for the best all around hood struts for your factory hood then look no further than these.. you'll be as amazed as I was from the first time opening the hood to the first wrenching session and every time you have to open it from there..
Great job with design from the folks at Grimmspeed..
