Shipping is TERRIBLE. Worst i have ever seen.
May 2, 2019
There was absolutely no packing inside this box, it was literally just the steering components inside a big box that was zip tied around the top and around the bottom. I dont know if you have a 3 year old packaging your stuff but jesus christ have some pride in your work. The parts are most likely damaged.

Installed the kit and is working very well
June 28, 2019
Recommend this! Was relatively easy to put on, just follow the way your front end looks on your truck. Hardest part was ball joints of course. But now the truck rides perfect!

Everything fit like factory
Worked well
December 26, 2020
Everything fit perfectly, no hassles. Not the company's fault at all, but be sure to check all pieces made it through shipping before starting install. Because of the very heavy weight and awkward shape, the packages take a beating in the mail.
Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Will this product fit with a 5 inch full suspension lift?
April 13, 2019
This kit will not work with a lift kit. The parts are for vehicles with the stock ride height.
April 14, 2019
Does these parts have grease fittings?
May 5, 2020
Thank you for your inquiry! Our steering and suspension components come pre-greased, sealed for long life, and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greasable versions. They will not have grease fittings as they are not needed. Please let us know if you have any further questions, thank you.
