Put these on the Galant and Eclipse today. I think they're my favorite mods after boost. Lifts the Galant hood an extra 4-5 inches. I'm hoping this will prevent me slamming my head on the corner of the hood...which I did again just the other day. I'm going back out in a few minutes and see what I can now reach from that corner...hot pipe to the IC, alternator and p/s pump adjustment, etc. No additional hood lift on the Eclipse though. It sits exactly the same as with the rod. Thanks for the quick shipping too Bob!
Best mod I ever did to the car. It felt great to throw the old hood prop in the corner of the garage.
I've had em installed for about 6 months now, but have always wondered how strong they were...Figuring that the struts were barely enough to handle the weight of the hood. I was most definitely wrong. I had a few inches of snow on the hood last week (I figure the snow doubled or tripled the weight of the hood) and the hood struts held the hood open without issue.
