2005-09 Subaru Outback Strut & Spring Assembly TRQ SCA57162 - 1ASSP01024

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 
Pre-Assembled

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!)

Like A Glove
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.
