I just finished a FULL build- built motor, brand new bolt ons, I'll spare you from the parts list. To my dismay, this is the part that gets the most attention lol. It really changes the experience of popping the hood. It springs up to meet the release lever, makes the satisfying "whoosh" noise you're familiar with, and gives you peace of mind while wrenching. Buy it now.
These are great I love having the extra room.
Install was a breeze. Makes it so much easier to work on things with the hood nearly vertical. The struts only stick up slightly above the fenders with the hood open. My only gripe is that the fit between the ball and sockets is slightly loose so it's a bit clunky. Some grease or a bit of felt might solve that though.
Just put these on my daughter's 02 WRX. Install was straight forward and easy. Took maybe half an hour. Quality seems top notch as is always with Grimmspeed products and I was surprised at how far it allows the hood to be opened compared to the Tein hood struts I have on my 04 STi. Definitely recommended!
