Part Details

  • Front / Rear Location: Front

This part replaces:

  • HOLLANDER 527-59623

  • New

Designed for easier installation.

This is a new replacement strut and spring assembly. We recommend replacing struts in pairs and performing an alignment after replacement.

  • Fits either LH (Driver Side) or RH (Passenger Side) FRONT
  • Includes:
    Replacement upper mount
    Upper and lower spring isolators
    Upper spring seat
    Coil spring
    Boot kit
  • Preassembled for easier replacement

In the past, replacing struts required specialized tools to compress, remove and transfer the spring. Our new strut and spring assemblies make this job much simpler for the do it yourself mechanic. This part comes pre-assembled. Jack up and support the vehicle with jack stands. Remove the wheel. Unbolt the top mounts and the bottom from the suspension and replace the whole unit. The large bottom bolts usually require an impact wrench and socket for removal. When reassembling, be sure to torque all nuts and bolts to their proper specifications. Do not use impact tools when reassembling.
