Default About Goodmark hood hinges

If someone bought a set from NPD and the hinges seem to do the job, but the springs are weak! My steel '67 Bird hood drops about a foot or so below fully open.

If you’re sure there are no mechanical/manufacturing issues with the hinges themselves, then either the springs don’t have the right spring rate or the wrong springs were installed.

My 69 & 74 parts catalog shows the 67 F-body used spring #3848272. Several sets of these NOS springs are listed on “the” auction site. Aftermarket springs are available but you might end up with the same thing you already have.
