Is it possible to replace the stock hood prop with hydraulic hood lifts? If so what is required and how should I go about installing.

We should get a group purchase on those...thats such a nice easy setup anyone can do and it beats having a prop rod.

Thanks for your interest in our QuickLIFT products. We support web forums and conduct group buys directly from us, the manufacturer the manner in which we conduct our group buys is simple, along with the pricing.

After the number of valid buyers has been determined, we will enable a custom URL for your group that will be posted for a short period of time (generally 2 weeks). This link will allow purchases to take place at the determined discount rate. Each U.S. customer will receive their
FedEx tracking number in an email soon after payment is received. After the predetermined purchase quantity has been reached, we will ship out all packages and the tracking numbers will become valid. The initial number of valid buyers is critical, we will not further discount
the group buy pricing if the number of customers exceeds what was initially agreed upon (i.e. pricing is fixed once group buy begins). We also support international group buys with the option to ship to one location at a discounted rate (all products shipped together). We will need to know the exact quantity before giving a shipping price, however, this unit price will be considerably less than individual purchase rate.

Our pricing is as follows:
QTY 1-9 Redline Tuning QuickLIFT - $69.95 (no discount)
QTY 10-29 Redline Tuning QuickLIFT - $59.95 ($10 discount) + shipping
QTY 30+ Redline Tuning QuickLIFT - $56.95 ($13 discount) + shipping
QTY 40+ Redline Tuning QuickLIFT - $55.95 ($14 discount) + shipping

Pricing for single gas spring systems follow the same volume discounts listed above, starting at base prices of $69.95 for QuickLIFT PLUS (single gas springs
systems only).


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thanks,
Redline Tuning

I would be in for two sets. Would it be strictly a J group purchase or would they be available for other makes at the new price?
