Part Details

  • Set Quantity:   4 Piece

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 

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!)

The strut assembly comes as advertised. This is my 2nd second assembly that I have ordered. This strut assembly has worked on my 2005 and 2006 outback and installation takes less than 1 hour if you’re doing it by yourself. Very nice.
March 13, 2018
Good quality for price, easy bolt in replacements.

Shock and strut combo
April 4, 2019
These guys were great. I am always leary about blind purchases for auto parts on line. Taking a leap of faith purchased struts and shocks combo from these guys and am very impressed. 2008 outback originals finally went out and replaced with there item. Coil overs were heavier than OEM and the ride is steady. Very prompt, dead on fit and will be working with these guys again. Stay straight and honest, thanks.

The parts came well packaged and marked. Super easy install and the car rides like new. I had my son do the replacement since it was his car. He was quoted $2k for same job. He was stoked that he saved $1800 and proud of himself. The video was excellent and the main reason I used A1.
Excellent: quality and delivery

These shocks/struts worked perfectly on my 2009 Subaru Outback. Delivered on exact date as advertised
August 8, 2019
Mechanic quickly installed and they have rid my outback of the noisy suspension along with the bouncing. Appear to be good quality.
Great product

Great fit and quality

I recently installed these springs on my 2008 Subaru Outback. Completely cured the rattle that most Outbacks develop over time due to the top part of the rear spring becoming worn and loose. Overall a good purchase. Just have to see if they last.
So far so good

I replaced front and rear struts using 1a auto Quick struts. The choice was primarily due to price. The struts made the old Suby ride like new. The car has 170K and this is the first replacement so the old struts were pretty shot. I dont know how long these will last. I doubt they will last as long as OEM or higher end struts. We only want to get another 80K miles so hopefully they will go that long. The struts raised the car a good three inches, maybe four. I think it may be a bit too high. Hopefully the car will drop a bit over time. My wife has not seen the car since I did the job and I am wondering if she will notice the extra height. The 1a auto DYI videos are good. However the job, particularly the rears are much much more difficult working on the floor on jack-stands compared to the video where the car is on a lift. The fronts are really easy. If the struts go the distance, I will be very happy. The local Firestone shop quoted $1000 plus tax. I am in for <$400
First time working on my own car!
February 21, 2020
These were the first parts Ive gotten to fix my car up myself. And the videos by 1A Auto made it so easy to learn how to replace the parts myself. Ill definitely be using this site to repair my car in the future!
