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 
Direct Fit

Fits and functions correctly.  Competitors combine applications to reduce the amount of parts they carry, resulting in: incorrect vehicle height, poor response and an uncomfortable ride.

Rigorously Tested

Made from higher quality materials than the competition. Built to have a longer life in any environment or road conditions.

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!)

Noise after installation
The kit was great. It comes with all the nuts you need and easy to follow instructions. I have noticed a kind of hollow rattle coming from the front left side after installation. Had it checked at a shop and they said everything looked ok...might be the actual strut making the noise. Hopefully, that goes away after a few days...

Leacree brand shocks/struts
If you are going to take the time to replace your shocks/struts, I would recommend spending the extra money on Monroe or equivalant. These are Chinese made garbage. They acted the same as a worn out shock/strut would. Save yourself the headache. Luckily 1a auto has great customer service and was there to help me trough the process of sending me a replacement and eventually processing a refund. I will definitely give 1a auto my business in the future!

Smooth Ride
I was just about to give up on my car because parts are so expensive. About 3 months ago I stumbled onto 1A Auto Parts and let me tell you, this place not only has affordable prices but their quality is also on point! I will never use any other parts store again, I have found my store.
