With the use and exposure that a hood strut kit will see on a regular basis, material selection and finishing options are critically important. All brackets are machined from locally sourced 6061 Aluminum. After an initial quality inspection, each part is anodized with a sleek, black finish. The threaded ball studs are machined from Stainless Steel to ensure that no potentially corrosive material is being introduced to your vehicles chassis. The next key component is the struts themselves. More specifically, these are referred to as gas springs. Manufactured in the USA, these are of the highest quality and are used by OEMs around the world. These custom valved units (to perfectly match the weight of the WRX and STI hoods) are paired with clear zinc hardware and a quick-release ball and socket. Last, but certainly not least, is the included hardware. All hardware is grade 8.8 or higher and black zinc coated for longevity.
