These are the GrimmSpeed High Lift Hood Struts. These hood struts have been designed to provide the hood of your vehicle support while eliminating the factory hood prop. This will provide a cleaner look for those of you who like to show off your engine bays at car meets or car shows while providing you with more room to move around the front of the car while performing maintenance as you won't have the prop in the way.

  • Will open the hood 35% higher and nearly 90 degrees than the OEM hood prop
  • Provides better access for maintenance
  • Provides the perfect hood balance
  • Eliminates the OEM hood prop

    Easily one of the best upgrades for a forester. Install took about 20 minutes and they fit flawlessly and look great. As expected quality is superior from grimmspeed.

    Hood "POPS" Now! 3 years ago

    Easy to understand installation, thus easily installed. Excellent execution of each piece/part of this kit. Laser-cut, black wrinkle-finish hood brackets are superb. Stainless steel bolts, nuts and related pieces/parts equally superb. Overall, much better than any similar OEM kit available. The final part, stick-on Grimm-Speed name plates, "make" this kit. Like another reviewer, would really like to have two lift points or height 'settings' for these struts: one, the "standard" prop- height opening; the final, the "full-height" opening. That would make these an unbeatable modification for the Forester.

    Awesome mod 5 years ago

    Gives me a lot more room and light in the engine bay to work. Wish they were adjustable so it could be closer to stock for regular stuff like checking fluids, but open up more when doing more involved jobs

    such a simple thing makes a big difference 5 years ago

    There is nothing worse than working on your car from the side and standing too quickly just to hit your head on the hood. With these installed your hood will go almost as far back as possible without having to use the em hood prop. After spending thousands on the car this has to be one of my favorite simple mods that really makes a big difference.

    This was one of the mods I was most excited for and followed Grimmspeed's updates through the design period as well. First impressions were great, quality hardware, great looking mounting brackets, clean struts. I was unable to find forester specific install instructions, and their mounting tabs were a bit different than the impreza models, so I had to do some digging for other installed pictures to see how they went. I also thought it was weird that the hardware threads were metric, but the heads appeared to be SAE sized. Wasn't a big deal, but I did have to dig around for my 13mm tools. The gold badge on the hood struts really looks great in person but is hard to capture in a photo. A very nice touch. The high lift took some getting used to. Yes, it does have definite pros, working on the car after these are installed is a breeze, nothing is in the way and it gives better natural lighting. A couple of the cons, it is much taller, and I kind of forgot about it when I had my car on jack stands and tried to open my garage door and it hit the hood. Totally my own fault, but just be aware that it does sit higher. Also, even though I'm 6'3 I have to stretch to reach the hood to close it, and I now prefer to walk around the side to avoid leaning on the front bumper and grill. Also, it really makes the dirty underside of the hood much more noticeable. Overall, still definitely a must have mod, great execution and the pros make it definitely worth it.
