Wrong Part Recieved
I ordered the 4 shock set and one of the shocks that was shipped was not the correct shock. When I called and described the problem 1A Auto told me they were out of stock and to call back in a few weeks when they had they back in stock. I ended up going to get the 4th shock from my local auto parts store, as I wanted to get the job done that week.
