Quick question... if your hood is like mine, and it uses the stock brackets, look at where the pistons mount. Mine are a full bracket that the hood bolts to, and the piston is attached to the bracket NOT the hood. This issue has arisen on the fords and chevys that the piston attaches directly to the hood and when it's down, the stock piston was pushing the hood back up as it was too strong. This isn't normally an issue on the dodges for the reason I listed above. My fiberglass hood has been on for two full years with NO cracks or issues running stock lift pistons.
