LST’s Chevrolet SSR Hood Support Kit  
SSR Hood Support


From the factory Chevrolet did not equip the 2003 – 2004 SSR with hood struts.  Until now, 2003 -2004 owners were left to suffer opening their heavy hoods manually and then set the hood prop in place in order to keep the hood open.

There have been many occasions where the hood of the SSR has been inadvertently closed without removing the prop rod causing serious and costly damage to the hood liner and bending the prop rod rendering it useless.

Well say good bye to heavy lifting and your old fashioned prop rod ! LST has designed a complete hood strut kit for the 2003 & 2004 CHEVY SSR. This kit is almost an identical feature to the factory hood support system found on 2005 up SSR’s.

Experience the ease and convenience of simply lifting your hood up and it staying up. No hood prop required! Simply pop your hood with the release inside your vehicle and lift up on the hood. The included pneumatic gas struts will assist the hood in a smooth effortless opening. Once the hood is all the way open, the gas struts will keep the hood safely open.

Each component in the kit was designed with longevity and quality in mind. A combination of stainless steel and zinc plated hardware is used to avoid corrosion. Brackets are CNC formed using 304 Stainless steel. The custom designed brackets offer a sturdy connection for the gas strut. Our highest quality gas struts are a key components of this kit to creates a smooth operating system that will perform in all conditions.

The SSR hood strut kit is a complete kit with all components needed for installation. Basic hand tools are required and the installation which can be performed in approximately 30 minutes following our step by step instructions.
