Tips for Installing 3100 Advance Design Hood Strut

Hood Strut Installation Hood Strut Installation
  • ★ Firstly, The 5" hood bracket requires two 1/4" holes to be drilled in the hood edge for mounting. It is recommended that the first mounting hole to be 5.75" forward of the rear hood bumper rubber.
  • ★ Secondly, The second hole will be 5" on center from the first hole towards the front of the truck.
  • ★ The firewall bracket bolts directly to the factory spring bolt location on the firewall with supplied hardware.
  • ★ Lastly, Mount the ball stud on the outside of the firewall bracket so that the strut is mounted on the fender side of the bracket. Refer to product photos.

The Hood Strut Kits are designed for factory hoods and have not been tested with aftermarket or fiberglass hoods. Be aware that the strut strength may be too much or not enough if using a non stock hood. Adjustment of the hinges and latch may be required depending on your prior setup before installing the strut kit. In addition, if you did not have factory style spring previously on the hood, there is a good chance the hood will need to be adjusted and aligned after install. Also, please see install video below for assistance during your install.
