Part Details

  • Quantity:   Pair

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 

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!)

Struts for 2011 Ford Explorer!
Very easy to replace!! Two guys, two hours and a few cold ones. Would have done it quicker but needed a few different sizes of wrenches and sockets. Then for good measure got it aligned and she runs perfect!! 1aauto.com delivered again.

Perfect Fit Replacement Struts
The replacement struts I received are a great match to the OEM ones I removed from my 2012 Ford Explorer. The quality looks good and the price was very reasonable compared to others I found online or was quoted by several repair shops.
July 5, 2017
Great Product.
The price was right, it fit perfect and so far the quality seems pretty darn good.
July 19, 2017
Great transaction!
Parts were correct, cheaper than anywhere else, and arrived earlier than expected! Awesome!

Did the job no more noise
Shipping was on time and parts are what I ordered.

Ditch the part store!
Quick and easy repair. Shipped to my door within three days. Plus I got the set cheaper than one wouldve been at my local part store!

Firmer ride
The R and R couldnt have been easier...took me 90 minutes on my own, including the clean-up. The strut assemblies appeared to be identical to the OE units, but the springs were somewhat stiffer, leading to a noticeable difference, especially on rough roads. The old units had developed the upper mount bearing noise problem, and given that there were 93k miles on the car and I had no desire to screw with compressing the springs to replace the struts and brackets, new assemblies seemed to make the most sense. I had a 4 wheel alighnment done, and the only correction made was the front and rear toe-in, which should not have been effected by replacing the whole assemblies. These uits were made in China, but so far they seem to be fine after about 500 miles. I saved my originals in case these dont last....Still a very cost-effective alternative.

Excellent service all around. Website easy to navigate, shipped parts out quick and the quality of the parts was excellent. I will definitely be back for more parts in the future.

Fit perfect and saved me a bundle!
These struts come ready to install. They were a lot cheaper than anything I could buy locally and they fit perfect! Because they come pre assembled there was no need for me to have to buy or rent any special, specific tools. I was able to install them myself at home with normal mechanic tools. I would definitely recommend them! I had an issue with the original struts making a popping noise which was caused by the struts bearing. This was definitely a good decision because they came pre assembled with new strut bearings also.

Struts where a perfect fit work great at a great price.

Perfect Fit
The strut/spring assembly was a perfect fit for my 2011 Explorer 4x4. They appear to be good quality.
October 30, 2018
Great Service, Support and no one can beat the Price
Thanks very much 1A Auto. I had a situation where I needed the shipping/delivery terms changed while en route and 1A accommodated by calling UPS on my behalf. For that I am grateful. Not only did they have the best price for a branded quick strut, they deliver for free within days. Nuff said, your amazing service, aggressive pricing, jedi responsive customer service and support team will bring me back again. Cheers Dave

The strut assembly is a quality part and was a direct fit. Im very pleased and will do business again. in the future.
February 19, 2019
Works and bolts right up like they said it would
Good quality parts, fast and free shipping. Took the old ones out and bolted the new ones right up. Fit like they said they would am backed with lifetime warranty and great price.

Ok replacement
My front strut was making a clicking sound. I purchased these and they went on easily. The noise is gone. The ride feels the same - maybe slightly looser than before. Everything is right, I think the quality of these are not oem or one of the big manufactures. I have 116,000 miles so I’m not too worried but if I had less mileage - I’d probably go with a named brand strut.
July 9, 2019
Went together as it was supposed to.
Job went well, just like in their video. Only complaint was the four nuts that hold the struts in the shock tower at top, they were pretty low grade and not self locking, so I re-used the old nuts.
July 15, 2019
Great product at a good price .
Repair shop wanted $1200 to replace two front struts on my 2013 Explorer. I paid $229 with free shipping and installed them in 2 hours!!!
August 9, 2019
So far so good with these.
August 15, 2019
Perfect, so far!
They already quickly, in great shape and were as described. Perfect fit. Have only had them for a few weeks. Time will tell how well they hold up. Saved myself about $1100 doing this myself vs going to a shop.

Easy install
I had a clunk noise when turning steering wheel right and left, finally got it diagnosed as likely tie rods and struts. With 135,000 mi on my Explorer I decided to change both; watched the 1A Auto videos on YouTube, ordered the parts in the description. Install was just as depicted, noise is gone, very happy, saved over $700 in parts and labor. 1A gave me the confidence I could do it myself. Thanks 1A Auto!
October 11, 2019
Outstanding Product
The struts I ordered from 1A were outstanding and very affordable. The video on how to replace was over the top. Thanks again!
December 28, 2019
Smooth ride
Super easy to install, ride is much smoother and no noise at all. The videos that 1A Auto have, make the installing super simple.

Yes. That is correct.
Eric P February 22, 2018

Ivan Y June 9, 2017
Are gas or hydraulic shock? Are those monroe?
Ariel F June 13, 2017
These are gas charged shocks. They are our own house brand, and are not supplied by Monroe.
Tim K June 13, 2017
Gas shock and they werent Monroe. I cant remember the brand, sorry.
Travis H June 13, 2017
Leacree is what brand I received
Eric P February 22, 2018
Are these designed for XLT 4WD application?
Mark S January 17, 2018
Yes, these will fit your XLT 4WD model.
Alex P January 17, 2018
Yes. They fit just fine and no more annoying twang when I turn my steering wheel.
W I January 17, 2018
I would say so. My car is the 2011 Ford Explorer limited. So as long as you dont have air suspension they will work.
Travis H January 17, 2018
Yes they are, they work great on mine!
Z A January 17, 2018
Yes, but you must check the part number against your VIN number as Ford made a design change during production of the Explorer.
J S January 17, 2018
I put these on a 2012 Ford Explorer limited. Worked great!
Keith S January 17, 2018
Yes they are.I bought them a year ago and I already have to replace them. They didnt last very long. For the price, you get what you pay for. Cheap prices are not always good
Cleavon M January 18, 2018
I am not 100% sure but I have a 2011 4wd xlt and they bolted right in no problem. I have had them in for about 6 months with no issues. They fixed my strut mount problem I was having. I would definitely suggest them makes life a lot easier then replacing just the mount
D W January 18, 2018
Does these bring two strut or one for the price?
Manuel R March 22, 2018
This listing is for a pair of struts. Thank you!
Adam G March 28, 2018
You get two struts, one right side and one left side.
J B March 28, 2018
2 struts, left and right.
Travis H March 28, 2018
Set of 2
U N March 28, 2018
Two come in the packaging .
M A March 29, 2018
When I bought it, it was with 2 struts and springs already attached. Great price, I couldn’t find a better price anywhere else for a brand new product. I do recommend.
Ivan Y April 4, 2018
what size sockets will i need to remove and install these struts?
Tommy L July 27, 2018
We do not have a specific socket size, you can try the 23mm socket.
Elesban A July 27, 2018
I can’t remember, sorry about that. Real easy to get to so you’ll be able to get it figured out.
Travis H July 27, 2018
12, 13, 14,15, 17, 18, 19 MM sockets and wrenches. Its a Ford, they like to use alot of different size nuts and bolts.
J S July 27, 2018
24 mm socket and 21 mm wrench...youll need a torque bar as well
D R November 13, 2018
Will this kit fit 2013 Explorers built before 09/2012?
Mario G February 18, 2020
This is not the correct part for your vehicle, but we do carry the one you need. The correct part number is 1ASSP01777. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you!
