The helpfulness and speed of 1A was great and getting all the suspension together in one kit. The only thing I would say that could be better would be a heavier duty struts for the front they seam to be a little light for my truck. But still happy with them.

I am very happy with my order and especially the customer service representative. There was a part left out of my order and I called them. They were very nice and helpful, my part came a couple days later. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again.
Awesome shocks at a great price

This is my first purchase from 1A Auto and I expect to become a long time customer. The shocks are great and my truck now handles MUCH better. The fact that the coil overs are preinstalled makes the job much easier. Also, you install videos are a very well done and very helpful. From a customer service standpoint, there was a shipping problem and 1A Auto took care of it immediately...even though it really wasn't their fault. Getting the old shocks out was more difficult than expected, but that was because the old units were old and rusted in. Soak with penetrating oil a couple of times, well in advance of pulling it apart. I ended up having to cut out the bottom linkage on the old ones and replace the lower bushings....But, the new ones went in great!
Great service and parts

It's the same price as rock auto but you get lifetime warranty and instructional videos on parts of you need them. Very detailed. They even have part numbers of what they would replace it with, which was also on rock auto!
OEM Quality at a cheaper price

Struts fit as should, my ride improved majorly and feels like a completely different pickup. Highly recommend this product. Just a tip to anyone doing this job is to be prepared for lower control arm bushings as the bolts like to rust themselves to it.

I ordered struts for my 08 ram 1500 and had no issues. I believe it took about 4 days to get them. They have been on the truck about 3 weeks now with no problems.
