2006-11 Ford Focus Strut & Spring Assembly Pair - 1ASSP00975

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 replacing with just bare struts. 

Trouble-Free Install

Trouble-free install includes the matched parts needed to get the job done. New mounts, bearings, springs and hardware will provide a better ride for your vehicle and save you time from not having to do the job again because a used part failed afterwards.

Matched Parts

When you buy the kit pre-built by us, you can be sure that the parts are matched for optimum performance.  Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same, so mixing and matching can result in fit issues and potentially decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

When you buy one of our kits, you not only save money over buying the parts individually, but you also save time having to search for all of the different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Lifetime Warranty

This item is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. In the event this item should fail due to manufacturing defects during intended use, we will exchange the part free of charge (excludes shipping charges) for the original purchaser. Please keep your invoice for proof of this warranty.

Great Product , Great price !
These struts are absolutely perfect in every way. The price, the fit on the vehicle and the shipping were all outstanding. I installed these on my wife's car and were an immediate success for me and her. She really noticed the improved ride.
Thank you !!!!!

Easy drop in replacement.
Order arrived next day, much quicker than expected. Parts are identical to factory installed struts on my 2007 Ford Focus. Took about 45 minutes using pneumatic tools. They provide comparable ride and handling after a day or two of settling in. 1A Auto has a very good "How To" video on YouTube, watch it for very good instructions.

Perfect Fit
I had more trouble taking the old one off then putting the new one on. Only change I would recommend is labeling which side is passenger vs driver side for easier identification . Easy installation for the DIYs out there.

Do these require a special camber/caster shims and strut plate?

Just disconnect anything attached to the strut and then unbolt the 2 bolts on the hub assembly and the 3 up on top. the whole assembly will come out!!
