Just got an email from redline tuning about their holiday sale, They have a really good price on the hood struts. I've heard some good things about them in the past, but does any one have any direct experence with them?

They were perhaps the first mod I ever installed in 2005. Posted about it on the OS. Recommended without reservations. Totally improves your under-the-hood experience permanently! Just be careful on the install with the drill AND the pop-rivets touching the underneath part of the hood and causing a visible pimple. I don't care, but YMMV.

I dont have them but I helped put a few sets on at Carlisle this year. Just follow the step by step and double check your measurements before drilling and your good to go.

Thats the regular price. The sale price is 55.95 for the standard, 67.95 for the plus, and 95.95 for the elite. It seems the sale price is only valid for previous customers, using the special link in the email

My 2003 TB was the guinea pig for the Redline Tuning Hood Struts. I also have them on my 2007 TB. The install instructions are excellent. There is also a video that shows how they work.

I am planing on going with the plus my self. I dont have to deal with rust issues down here, and I assume that was the biggest issue with them

after 1 chicago winter no rust, no problems
couldn't be happier.
as roadie stated, be careful when drilling.

sorry it took so long to get back to you on this.
had to make a delivery to valpo this morn.
if i had a few extra hours, would have run down to show you,
after some research,(could not find my receipt) i have the 69.95 ones
zinc plated brackets.
part # on both struts RT-QL-200-7A (that may be the same for the mid $ range struts, i think the only diff is the powder coated brackets)
been happy as hell w/ them.

Thanks. I will likely Pop on a set. I hate working around the factory prop.

Do you use any touch-up paint or anything to seal the metal edge around the rivets where you drilled? I'd hate to see water get in there and then rust the hood or fender around where those struts mount. That would suck.

I used touch up paint on mine when I installed mine. So far no rust. I installed mine in the fall of 07.
