Tired of that ugly OEM hood prop blocking your view of that beautiful boxer engine? Always wanted to open your hood with just a couple fingers? Annoyed that the hood prop is always in your way while you’re working in your engine bay? GrimmSpeed to the rescue. With meticulous design and quality materials, this kit delivers in a big way. Designing this kit to be perfectly balanced was a requirement for GrimmSpeed. Lift the hood halfway and you'll find a generous neutral zone. Leave your hood here for a sleek look at that local car show. Alternatively, a flick of the wrist is all that's required to coax your hood into its fully opened position. To close, simply hold the hood below its neutral zone and let go. No need to risk scratches or deformation by pushing your hood closed.

 

Design
GrimmSpeed began by mapping the hood and engine bay for a number of test vehicles in 3D CAD. From there, a lifting linkage was designed, analyzed, prototyped and tested. Their in-house 3D printer facilitated a fast, efficient design cycle and they were able to move into production using some of the worlds most advanced CNC machining equipment. What that means for you is a system that will fit and operate correctly, every single time, for years to come. The fender ball studs were also designed specifically for the application to adapt their high-quality, American-Made struts to the metric threads found on your Subaru. What about those struts, you ask? They're beefy. Custom built to exacting specifications, these struts feature a large diameter body that provides excellent opening force without sacrificing smoothness and control.

 

Materials
With the use and exposure that a hood strut kit will see on a regular basis, material selection and finishing options are critically important. All brackets are machined from locally sourced 6061 aluminum. After an initial quality inspection, each part is anodized with a sleek, black finish. The threaded ball studs are machined from stainless steel to ensure that no potentially corrosive material is being introduced to your vehicles chassis. The next key component is the struts themselves. More specifically, these are referred to as gas springs. Manufactured in the USA, these are of the highest quality and are used by OEMs around the world. These custom valved units (to perfectly match the weight of the WRX and STi hoods) are paired with clear zinc hardware and a quick-release ball and socket. Last, but certainly not least, is the included hardware. All hardware is grade 8.8 or higher and black zinc coated for longevity.
