MRT Hood Strut Group Purchase

Discussion in 'SN95 V6 Mustang Tech' started by 2000 4.6, Feb 10, 2006.

  1. **I have permission from Stangnet** :SNSign:

    I have spoken to Mustang Racing Technologies and they are willing to do a group purchase on their hood strut kits if anyone is interested. They have kits for the 2005+ and the 99-04's. If you are interested, please let me know. Obviously, the more people we get, the better the deal. Right now they are giving us 5% off plus a discount on shipping from their Michigan location.

    Here is the link to their kits... http://www.mrt-direct.com/2005/Pages/hoodprop.php. Their kits are a direct bolt on and require no drilling or riveting. They are estimated to take about 15-20 minutes to install.

    Email me at if you are interested in I will give you instructions on how to order.

  3. i was thinking about maybe getting the one from Redline Tuning
     
  4. What's teh difference?
     
  5. the ones from MRT have different brackets...look at the link above, and then look at my install here:

    with the redline, you have to rivet the bracket to your hood.....it sounds worse than it is..not hard at all to install!

  6. :shrug: whatever one is stronger i'll buy
     
  7. :( no 98's.....:(:suicide:
     
  8. You might want to call and ask them...the 99-04 kit might fit the pre 99's.
     
  9. Anyone else interested? The group purchase is still going on but will probably end in a week or so.
     
  10. Okay, I just spoke to MRT today and they are now offering 10% off. :nice:

    We need to get 15 confirmed orders though before we can get the discount. Email me if you are interested and I will give you the details.
     
  11. Don't think I'd be able to do it since my hood isn't exactly 100% aligned right. :(
     
  12. The Redline Hood struts are great, they will offer a GP as well for I did one a few back!

    They are great to work with as well!

    Easy paypal transaction, no hassle excellent product.
     
  13. I went with the MRT's myself because they mount farther back than the Redline's which I feel looks better. Plus since my hood is composite I didn't want to drill holes and pop rivet a bracket because it could lead to strees cracks. The MRT's are a true 15 minute bolt-on mod.

  14. What is the warranty on these? They're gas-charged and sealed, I assume, so I want to know what life I can expect.
     
  15. I think they come with a one year warranty. I think they estimate life expectancy on struts to be well over 5 years. I have a 2001 Toyota Sequoia that has the struts on the 100+lb tailgate and they are still going strong.

    You can always get replacements at an autoparts store (for cheap) or through MRT.
     
  16. Good news...we met our goal and the kits are being shipped out. Anyone else calling from here on out will automatically get the 10% discount on the hood struts through this gp. So if you are interested, email me at and I will give you the ordering details.

    I have attached a pic of my kit installed. The kit is very nice and very high quality.
