    The new springs will do it. They are the little guys that pop the hood up a couple of inches so you can get your fingers under there and lift it.

    replacing the hood pin springs is a possible solution?

    It's more than possible; it is a probable.

    Thanks for your feedback, Ted. I've ordered a set of new springs from Corvette Central.

    Just received the replacement hood springs, but not sure how to go about replacing the original springs. Do I need to remove the complete assembly on each side of the hood? i.e. The triangular plate attached to the hood, or remove just the pin and spring? If just the pin and spring, how is the pin fastened to the triangular plate? I've searched numerous resources including the service manual and have yet to find information on how the pin and spring are fastened to the plate. Thanks for your help!
