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 
Direct Fit

Fits and functions correctly.  Competitors combine applications to reduce the amount of parts they carry, resulting in: incorrect vehicle height, poor response and an uncomfortable ride.

Rigorously Tested

Made from higher quality materials than the competition. Built to have a longer life in any environment or road conditions.


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!)

Strut kit and shocks install
The parts came in on the date as I was informed. The install was easy as it can be. Plus the video that was given on line was exactly what was shown to make the installation very easy. The price for both front and back suppension what the best price and trust me I have looked around. I have a ready order more parts from this site and recommend it to my friends and family.

Shocks and Strut Assembly
This purchase was a great investment and works great on my car. I sure enjoy riding now. I am glad that I have found 1A auto and will use them in the future.

I didnt know how bad it was until I installed the new ones!!
Great price. Delivered on-time. Installation was a bit more difficult than the accompanying video demonstrated, but I got them installed. Make sure you have the tools they recommend. Deep sockets are a must for this job. The brake line bracket wasnt perfect, but bending them a bit made them fit. The price is too good to complain about these very minor issues. Highly recommend.

I’d try another place! Maybe?
I wouldn’t recommend the front shock because they don’t fit and it raises the front struts raises the front of the car and wheel wells like a monster truck! The brake line housing is off by much to a point you cant connect it properly!l do it just loose ! I give it 2 stars because the back fit great with good ol elbow grease ! I will be taking the front struts off ASAP and put my old ones on! Great price but parts doesn’t fit! And I believe I was sent a strut that was sent back because it was scratched up like someone tried to put it on there car and it didn’t fit !

Great Product. Saved $$ by installing it myself
Product was delivered as described. Viewed the videos on how to install the struts and even though this was the first time I ever installed something like this, it was pretty easy. I do recommend that you purchase a torque wrench to complete the job correctly.
