If you have ever been looking at the engine bay of your vehicle and had the hood fall on your head, then you already know the value of hood dampers. These nifty little devices will keep your hood suspended open when you need to get some engine work done, and when it is time to close up for the day they let you simply push the hood closed with no cumbersome hood props or latches to maneuver around. Here at Andy's Auto Sport we have a great selection of hood dampers for you to choose from. No matter what your application you are sure to find the perfect hood dampers to get the job done in our extensive collection.
Hood dampers use the same technology as many shock absorbers. These gas filled struts can hold open a substantial load, and then telescope closed when needed. While many new cars come with hood dampers, they tend to wear out over time requiring replacement. Older vehicles on the other hand can be updated with hood dampers to make engine work a breeze. In addition to OEM style dampers, there are also several companies who produce custom hood dampers so that you can add a little flash to your engine bay and retain great function. This is the perfect modification for the budget minded enthusiasts who wants to improve functionality.
Q: What are hood dampers? Why buy them?
A: Hood dampers are miniature gas pressurized shocks that are used to support your hood when it is open, and to prevent it from slamming down when you go to close it. These supports are simple in design but perform an important task. Overtime lift supports can lose their charge so that they can no longer fully support the weight of your hood. You might first find this out the hard way by getting hit in the head as the hood tries to close on top of you. Once your hood starts to creep down there is not turning back, your dampers are shot. If you have worn out hood dampers it is time to get a brand new replacement pair. Your frustration will vanish and you will have flawless hood operation for many years to come
