UPDATE: Installation was pretty easy. Only got snagged up on a couple of things.
1) The metal clip inside one of the ball joints was out of place. nothing a screw driver couldnt fix.
2) putting back the safety pin back in was a lil pain in the ass but not terribly difficult.
Overall, i am very pleased with the product. I really like that its not permanent. i had purchased a Redline hood damper set and i didnt like that i had to rivet them in the fender. There is more room to work on the engine and the hood goes higher then the stock hood prop.
(i figured out how to take out the hood prop.)
