1996 Ford Explorer Hood StrutReview Fitment Notes to Ensure Proper Fit
Strong Arm Hood Strut
Part Number: 5258-05711338
Notes: Hood Lift Support
Worked fine on my 1996 Explorer. Hood works like new now.
Did the job. I had to reverse the orientation from the original installation to get the new units to slip on to the ball piviots. The upper and lower were different size but that shoul have no effect on operation.
I order this struts and had them the very next day now I can work under the hood with out worry about knocking the dowel out place
Works great! Instructions said to install the way they came off. Had to flip them around because sockets were on opposite ends.
lst time I have tried Parts Geek
Easy ordering and good fast service
I will try them again
I needed two of these to get the hood to stay up (common failure on this model of vehicle) and they were easily replaced and do the job they are intended to do. I will need two more soon for another vehicle, so I will order this part again. Reasonable value compared to OEM parts.
