Specifications:

  • Brand New Steering & Suspension Kit
  • Comes as a 10 Piece Kit
    • Fits RH (Passenger Side) & LH (Driver Side)
  • Direct replacement
  • Built to strict quality control standards

Our steering and suspension components come pre-greased, sealed for long life, and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greasable versions.

Please Note: Whenever replacing steering components, it is highly recommended to have a professional alignment performed on the vehicle afterwards.  Failure to do so may result in issues with steering and premature tire wear.

Direct Fit

All parts are direct fit, application-specific parts with no modifications required

Rigorously Tested

Rigorously tested and made from higher quality materials than the competition. Our parts are built to have a longer life in any environment or road conditions.

State of the Art Manufacturing

Our parts are manufactured by some of the same factories that the OEMs use.

Prepackaged for Your Convenience

Our kits have been carefully put together to include all of the parts you need to get the job done, saving you both time and money. These kits also help take the guesswork out of finding the correct part for your vehicle’s steering or suspension system, allowing you to get started on your repair project faster.

I have not installed th parts yet but have inspected them. Everything is in the box and undamaged. One reason for buying from 1a auto is watching the installation videos they are some of the best online videos.I feel sure everything will be fine when installed.

Steering and suspension kit.
Can’t say I dislike anything about this product. Everything was included just like the order started. The installation videos were very helpful. The ball jonts are self packed so adding grease is not necessary. Came in one day of ordering and would recommend this product to others. Five Stars
