    Make sure the hinge bolts are tight? Make sure the seal at the top edge of the grille assembly is in good condition? I've seen the hood flex with air pressure, but it shouldn't shift.

    You could always slow down. Just kidding, when I had the Redline struts on the hood I had a ton of hood wobble.

    i had the same issue at all speeds over about 25. i found a bolt loose on the latch. it gave the latch a fair amount of play. tightening it seemed to fix it

    Make sure you have the two hood cushion bumpers under your hood and check if your hood lock assembly is the correct height.

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Maybe you guys didn't notice he is from the Autobahn. It is okay to drive that fast.

    I better go and look and make sure.

    it might be "Ok", but its a truck, and not really designed for higher speeds. Hood flexing at those speeds is normal. Best way to help control it is to reinforce the crossmembers under the hood. The mounting points arent going to play much o a rol in controling flex.

    I would move to the Autobahn if it was a country. Maybe even settle in a town called Nurburgring. :)

    I was also rubbing one out and driving with my knee if it makes you feel any better, and the speedo is off it was more like 120.

    Also nuerburg is a real town, with a nice track around it.
