2006-08 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck Strut & Spring Assembly Pair TRQ SCA57037 - 1ASSP00427

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!)

I had to have a shop replace my struts because the bottom bolts were rusted to the bushings in the lower control arm. The truck rides like it did when new. Thank you for the parts for a great price!

My 2006 Dodge Ram bounces pretty bad over bumps in the road. Do you believe I need struts?
Jarrod H on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Probably, if you stand in front of your truck and bounce the front end up and down, let go, it should not bounce more than 1.5 times
