1995-05 Strut & Spring Assembly Rear Pair - 1ASFK00033

In the past, replacing struts required specialized tools to compress, remove and transfer the old spring and mount.  Pre-assembled with all new parts, our complete strut and spring assemblies make this job much quicker and easier for the do-it-yourself mechanic.

Each complete strut & spring assembly contains:

  • Upper Strut Mount
  • Strut Bearing
  • Coil Spring
  • Boot & Bumper Kit
  • Gas-charged Strut 
Pre-Assembled

Pre-assembled, loaded strut & spring assemblies allow for a quicker, safer install than replacing with just bare struts. 

Trouble-Free Install

Trouble-free install includes the matched parts needed to get the job done. New mounts, bearings, springs and hardware will provide a better ride for your vehicle and save you time from not having to do the job again because a used part failed afterwards.

Matched Parts

When you buy the kit pre-built by us, you can be sure that the parts are matched for optimum performance.  Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same, so mixing and matching can result in fit issues and potentially decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

When you buy one of our kits, you not only save money over buying the parts individually, but you also save time having to search for all of the different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Lifetime Warranty

This item is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. In the event this item should fail due to manufacturing defects during intended use, we will exchange the part free of charge (excludes shipping charges) for the original purchaser. Please keep your invoice for proof of this warranty.

good struts
Just got these in today, easy to install and for that bottom bolt that you curse just heat it with a torch for about 30 seconds and it will spin right off with your air impact tool. Much smoother ride.

quick ship.

Good struts
I put these struts in for my 1997 sunfire. Pretty easy to install with handtools. Prepare to curse at the bottom bolt though. Overall, it rides smoother and is alot better on bumps.

how do I know that the strut is bad when it has a spring as well as a shock? I hear clunking but nothing else in the vicinity seems to be worn or damaged.

BEST ANSWER: The price from 1A Auto for the strut and spring assembly is so affordable, that it doesn't make much sense to go crazy trying to figure out, whether it is the spring or the strut that is bad . I replaced mine about four months ago and I have 0 complaints. It is also a much easier job to replace the whole spring and strut assembly, rather than having to decompress the spring to separate them.
