2006-11 Honda Civic Strut & Spring Assembly Pair TRQ SCA57242 - 1ASSP01193

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!)

2006 Honda Civic Front Strut Assembly and Sway Bar Link Replacement
After being told by an auto shop that my car needed the front struts and sway bar links replaced to pass its annual inspection I asked them for an estimate. The total price including tax, supplies and parts was right at $1100.00. I immediately went on the internet to see how to change the parts myself and found 1A Auto. I reviewed their installation videos and determined that I could do the work myself. The video also shows you all the tools you need to do the job. It turned out that I did so I purchased the parts for a total cost of just over $200.00. I followed the install videos and with all their help and tricks to remove the parts I successfully changed both front struts and sway bar links in about two hours. The hardest part for me was removing the sway bar links, but with the right tool it proved not to be so hard. Most importantly here is that the parts I received from 1A Auto were identical to the parts I was replacing. I was concerned that the strut assembly might not be an exact replacement, but when I received them and compared them to the old parts they were identical. This made it very easy to re-install the ABS and brake lines back to the strut. Also the strut assembly came with new nuts for the top mounting bolts. by doing the work myself with 1A Auto's assistance, I saved over $800.00 and the car passed its annual inspection. Auto shop even asked me who did the work and I said I did. I didn't mentioned to them that I got my parts and help from 1A Auto because there's still some jobs that I can't do. But it's nice to know that you can check out the installation videos at 1A Auto to see if you have the right tools and how difficult a repair your up against. It's also nice to get the exact replacement parts that fit your car perfectly. Can't say how happy I am about the entire experience using 1A Auto. My new go to auto repair store now for sure. Thanks 1A Auto, couldn't have done it without you!

will this fit the hybrid version?
brian j on Jul 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if it will. I have the lx model. I haven't done the installation yet because I think I need to work on the front hub as well. The hub needs to be done first before changing the strut assembly.
Will this fit a 2008 Honda Civic EX Coupe? If not, where do I find those?
Helen H on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These are only for sedans. If you need front assemblies for your couple please check out part number 1ASSP01089!
Just want to make sure these will fit an LX trim 09 Civic. I've seen listings for other strut assemblies that are SAID to fit all 06-11 Civic sedans, but supposedly weren't compatible w/ the LX. ??

BEST ANSWER: Hello David. According to the listing this set of struts will fit your 2009 Honda Civic LX as long as it is a sedan only. Please let us know if you have any other questions and have a great day!
