RK Sport Hood

Has anyone installed the RK Sport Hood and can you tell me if you can still use the hood struts? I am looking at buying it and this will decide!

I've seen the hood installed and, yes, the stock airsprings are retained.

I have had the RK Sports hood for over 10 months now.....use all of your stock hardware...I also put hood pins on to kill the "flex" at high speeds.....

Flex

Just got the hood this month (see my pics). Hit 145 on the freeway and saw a little bending in the front. Could have been the lights, since it was at night.

Love the hoodpins SGTGeek. Where did you get them? Where they a pain to install? DIY or professional?

Very happy with the RK Sport hood.
