1979-1998 Ford Mustang & 1979-86 Mercury Capri Hood QuickLIFT, QuickLIFT PLUS & QuickLIFT ELITE

Replace your hood's prop rod today with our Redline Tuning Hood QuickLIFT system. There are always areas that every OEM doesn't address due to cost, and our high-quality hood QuickLIFT system is one of them...   Two gas-springs that lift and hold your hood without the need for a poorly placed prop-rod, simply start to lift your hood and let our QuickLIFT system take over. Your hood will lift and hold firmly at the raised position - no wind or bumping will knock it down on your head. 


  • No compromise system - We design our systems from start to finish - we mount the gas springs where they need to be for proper function... we utilize stock bolt locations when available, but we never compromise functionality of the system for the sake of it being 'bolt-in'.
  • Simple one-handed operation, simply start to lift the hood and it will raise to the stock height unassisted in a smooth and controlled motion.
  • Progressive gas springs. Our springs are not off the shelf parts, they are designed by us and manufactured to our specifications for each vehicle application. Our exclusive end-of-force dampening slows the rate of extension over the final inches of travel eliminating stress to the hood.
  • QuickLIFT systems work with any hood (steel, fiberglass, SMC, carbon fiber etc.) - we design our systems using the stock hood so the main market is covered, however, our systems are made to work with 99% of aftermarket hoods.  No extra parts are required.   Read our FAQ for more information...
  • Quick and simple installation - we design the systems and write all of our own documentation.  FULL COLOR manuals will arrive that will walk ANYONE through this simple installation - our customer comes first.  Every vehicle uses different hardware and mounting locations, all made easy.  You do NOT need to be a mechanic or car nut like us - we are so confident in our product that we post every installation manual on our website for you to review prior to ordering.

We love cars, we love to engineer and design new unique parts for cars our passion is obvious.  Each system is designed by us and we stand behind the thousands of systems we have sold. Our design is very easy to install and gets nothing but the highest marks from our customers and magazine reviews.

Designed for: All 1979-1998 Mustangs including: Mustang LX, GT & Cobra, plus 1979-86 Mercury Capri.  We include specialized hardware designed for stock and aftermarket hoods - nothing extra must be purchased to work on an aftermarket hood. Read our FAQ regarding aftermarket hoods and installation questions.

Customer Feedback:

I just finished installing the hood lift on my 94 Mustang GT Convertible. I can't stop opening and closing it!!

I received my Quicklift order for my 1990 Mustang recently in the mail and installed it myself on Saturday. What a great product! Awesome. Absolutely one of the best investments I've ever made on my car. Took me quite a bit longer to install than was indicated in your manual, but I got it done and done right. No more crappy prop rod. Still getting used to it not being in my way as when I was putting the hood-bra back on the car, I moved around the engine bay as if the rod was still there.

Thanks again and I'm looking forward to doing business with Redline Tuning in the future.

"I can't believe that I even thought twice about getting your Quick Lift for my Mustang! These hood struts rock! You are right, there won't be any more near misses with the prop rod - excellent product, highly recommended!"
- Bill Meyar (91 Mustang)

"Finally, someone creates a the ultimate mod! Nice job! I love these things - they make me smile each time I open up the hood!  Thanks again.
- John T. (93 Mustang)

"Incredible! Easy to install and something that should have come from Ford on my car! These things are highly recommended - instructions are the best I've seen in aftermarket products. Thanks guys!"

I just received and installed you hood lift kit for my 96 Ford mustang. I love it! What a great product and an outstanding instruction manual. All the parts came with the kit, and fit perfectly. Thank you for a great product and the great experience.
