2006-10 Strut & Spring Assembly Rear Pair - 1ASSP00630

Each complete strut & spring assembly contains:

  • Upper Strut Mount
  • Strut Bearing
  • Coil Spring
  • Boot & Bumper Kit
  • Gas-charged Strut

Good and bad
Arrived on time and were installed immediately. Left for 3000 mile road trip the next day. Working great so far. Restored vehicle control and ended rear sway on bumps.
A bit disappointed by the Made In China sticker on the box when they arrived.
We'll see how long they last.
