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.


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!)

Ordered the struts and shocks and received them in about 4 days. Watched install video. Took me and my son 3.5 hours to replace the front struts and rear shocks. saved about $1750.00 not having the dealer do it. I am Extremely HAPPY !!!!

Fits well.Quick delivery.
This product fits really well. I bought the part as recommended my my mechanic. He installed it for me and said it fits in the vehicle very well. Free delivery was quick as well. It was at my door step a few days later with updated status of the delivery. I was so impressed that I just ordered the Lower control arm. As first it says it will be delivered next week. After UPS updated the status, it will be at my house by Friday. Keep up the good work in providing quality parts!

The Solo owner
Easy to replace and so far so good. After installment took to tire shop to check alignment and very thing was with alignment specs. Drove vehicle off road for about 10 mile and it was a great ride.

Big improvement
I got these for my brothers 06 Pilot and getting the old struts off was quite a challenge given that I live in the northeast but now that the new ones are on the car I must say that this was a very good purchase. I would definitely recommend this kit to anybody in need

Happy with Order
My order was delivered in less than 24 hours. I changed the front strut assembly and stabilizer links on my 2004 honda pilot, and the rear shocks as well. Everything fit perfectly, the parts seem to be good quality, and the car now rides significantly better after 150,xxx on the original setup.

Great value
I needed to replace shocks and struts on my wifes Honda Pilot, and I found these. Free shipping was great, and they were delivered quickly. The best part was that I didnt need to don body armor and use a spring compressor! Installation was quick and easy.
