I just ordered a seibon OEM carbon fiber hood, and noticed it says not to use the stock "shocks" or whatever they are. (i forgot) anyways it says it could warp the hood. I cant seem to find anything anywhere to put compatible ones on that will work with the hood.. any suggestions from anyone else who has put a carbon fiber hood on?
All i seem to be able to find are "Hood damper kits". And also see a lot of people saying don't use those kits on carbon fiber.. so im pretty confused lol
Hatch or hood? If hood you dont even use shocks to hold up the hood. If its a hatch then yes DONT use the stock shocks remove them and find some that are for those. Only place i know sells them is fastscions.com i think

As far as I know those wont warp your hood. They have some an option for lightweight(carbon fiber) hoods on that page also. Im sure you can find them else where for cheaper but that was just the first place I thought of.
forget the dampers forget the shocks, just use the OEM hood prop that came with your car. it wont warp your hood...its not like youre putting your hood up 24/7 anyways. save yourself the money all you need is to sand out the hole where the hood prop goes to enlarge it and youre done.
