Re: hood problems

did you buy the oem hood strut? Some of the aftermarket are too weak for some reason.

Re: hood problems

the strut is bad then if it doesn't hold the oem hood. The oem hood is aluminum and light for what it is.

Re: hood problems

a new oem strut doesn't hold it up? You sure its an oem aluminum hood? I used a aftermarket steel tiawan hood on my old 2006 for about 3 months and never had a problem. It weighed 4x what the oem weighed.

Re: hood problems

Like Scott said, that hood strut should hold that hood up no matter what. Did you try taking it back? Maybe it was faulty.... Not sure how much lighter the medic hood would be over aluminum.
