Anybody here seen this before? It is a very interesting product. You can replace the stock hood prop rod with gas-charged shocks. Very cool. Click the link below to see it on a '04 WRX STI.

Sure looks like a better deal than Prova's insanely overpriced setup... (grin)
Though I wonder how difficult this would be to do yourself? Since every autozone has a lot of different types of gas shocks for doing repairs on trunks....

IMO, you're a pansy if that aluminum hood is just too much for you to lift.

You can't use the service prop holes if you put those on, though. Normally you can use them to get the hood up vertically and make it a hell of a lot easier to work underhood.

Lol... I just liked the idea of having that prop out of the way when working under there... Seems way too easy to knock it out accidentally.

Are the service prop holes somewhere on the strut tower?

Yes there is a service prop hole on the left strut tower. The hood and prop are completely out of the way if you use that one.

wrxpkr's hood does this and it didn't cost him a penny. All you have to do is get hit by a saturn.

I think that "mod" is not an option for most of us.
