Spiker hood struts

I found it to be an easy installation. There are many videos on YouTube and the spiker web site to help you install these awesome "made in America" hood struts. Just help them a bit and your hood goes right up no more fighting with that darn hood rod !! Great product easy install.

Great Buy but please also package screws with the rivets

It was super easy to install on my 2015 Tacoma; It took about 10-15 minutes to install. One thing I was they did would be if they also included screws as well of the rivets because if you mess up the install with the rivets your done for. Id personally use screws to install it incase you ever need to either repair it or replace it. Please also give better instructions on where to properly install them because its clear where to install it on the bottom but the top is a bit confusing.

Need better installation instructions

I do like the product, but FYI you need better instructions. Read through manual which has no measurements . Manual state to look up a website which does not work nor comes up on line. Reviewed 3 other installs of Hood struts being installed on a Tacoma which all 3 give the same measurements. They are the same for these struts sold here on line Had to end up drilling more holes to make it work measurements are approx 1.5”in. Off what is stated on line of other product Tacoma strut installations You should put what is needed correctly in the instructions Work on it for others please! Craig
