Yeah whenever AM shows something out of stock I always call because it take their system time to catch up.

It was super hot outside and I got in a hurry and installed them on the wrong fender bolt first, then changed it to the right one and closed the hood on my oakleys but now my hood seems slightly higher on one side, I don't know of its just me. Either way they are on there and functional so yeah.

Re: MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

At first i used the wrong fender bolt to. But it was a easy fix. Thats what happens when you rush. Things get put together wrong and then Oakleys get crushed, lol.

You know i did. I was like, wtf. I felt like i was bending the hood. I took a second look, and check the instructions again and determined it had to be the farthest back fender bolt.

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS
The instructions were read, it was the picture that threw me off. Did anyone notice a slight raise in the hood after installing this product?

Re: MMD Bolt On Hood Strut Kit

Not on the MRTs...best check the work again. There's no way this should have raised the hood as hood vertical alignment, controlled at the inside hinge bolts, isn't touched.

The instructions are the same since 2005, except for the mod to the sound tube bracket for the 11 + on the MRTs.

Check and make sure you're not pinching the squirter line under the hood bracket or something.

Hmmm, I guess I got some more work to do, because I don't think I'm completely satisfied with the way it turned out

It's been awhile since anyone posted to this thread. In the intervening months, has anyone had any more experience, good or bad, with the struts discussed in this thread? I am thinking of getting the Redline Quicklifts for a 2012 GT500. Thanks for any advice you can give.

MRTs rock solid after a year, even in the frigid temps we've experienced last winter and this one. Really happy.

I've heard good things about redline struts. That's what I'll be buying.

I'm very happy with my Redlines. The new design does not require any drilling & is very easy to install.

I installed a color-matched MRT hood strut kit on my 13' GT and I couldn't be happier with it. Works great and looks awesome!
