Part Details

  • Set Quantity:   2 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!)

Great fit!
Perfect replacement for the Outback I was working on. Odd design by Subaru that the shock is loaded and hard to get off because of the pressure. All in all this makes the job much easier.

Subaru Outback rear struts
Having found that a spring was broken on one of the rear struts on my 2008 Subaru Outback and being a guy that says "Ill do it myself". I shopped for new strut assemblies and determined that 1AAuto was the best deal. I ordered the struts and they arrived in two days. The installation went well and quickly. The feel of the car with the new struts is a huge improvement with much better ride and body control. I highly recommend these struts for great value and performance.

So far works perfect.
I was impressed with service and timely delivery from 1Aauto. Product itself looks good and fits perfect. Really nice ride after repair. Too early to say anything about quality, but for this price I can change it every year. Thanks.

Better price than RockAuto and super fast delivery. And the 1A youtube video showing how to install was very helpful. Thanks!

Great suspension
It fit right in didnt take long to install. Took at make 2 hours with taking out the old suspension in that time too
June 17, 2019
very easy checkout with PayPal love it
In terms of prices I believe they have the most competitive prices on parts. Dont know how they pull it but they make it happened. I had the struts installed and car runs great and smooth ride. After a week a replaced the front struts as well and I bought them again from them so far it has been a good journey. I hope they last for some time at least. I hope this helps. jason

Perfect fit
I ordered rear shocks from 1A Auto. Since I’ve watched more than a few of their videos, it only made sense for me to give them my business. Good quality parts at a great price. 1A auto parts is on top of my list if I need anything else for my car. I highly recommend 1A Auto Parts.
July 25, 2019
Parts fit perfect the shocks work well easy to install
Looking for a reasonable shock advance Auto parts in different local parts stores were almost twice the money very pleased fast shipping got around time
January 13, 2020
Took the bounce out
Installed these on my 2005 Outback XT. Good quality. Good price. Will order fronts in future. I tow a 4 wheeler on a small trailer and these really made a big difference over my worn out ones. Install was pretty easy.
