Part Details

  • Quantity:   4 Piece Set

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

Loaded strut & spring assemblies allow for a quicker, safer install than bare struts.  No spring compressor required! 

Trouble-Free Install

Includes the matched parts needed. New components over reused parts provide a better ride and save you from having to repair again.

Matched Parts

Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same.  Mixing and matching can result in ride quality issues and decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

Over buying the parts individually, or having to search different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Easy changeover, great fit.
I purchased this strut and spring assembly for my 2003 Chevy Cavalier. I watched the YouTube demo from this company before purchasing. It was very helpful and made the changeover from old to new very simple.

Struts front and rear
After 137,000 Mi the rough ride on my vehicle was getting ridiculous. Purchased new struts front and rear. Followed all the instructions to a T. Unfortunately Im very disappointed in the ride quality. Didnt seem to change anything at all. Took the vehicle to Les Schwab to get a front-end alignment. Couple of technicians informed me that these drop-in struts are not worth the time and money. I ended up having two different shops/businesses check my car out top to bottom. Unfortunately it seems to be the struts that are lacking in performance.

Perfect!!!
With the help of their how to videos, my installation on my 03 cavalier went smooth!! Took me less the and 1.5 hrs to complete. As far as the product goes.... EXCELLENT!!! My car has a very comfortable ride to it, i love it. I also purchased shocks for my 04 Durango and the same results. AMAZING!!!! 1AAUTO keep doing what your doing. Prices are incredibly fair. Especially when bundled. Thanks Guys!!!!
