Acura MDX Honda Pilot Strut & Spring Assembly Pair TRQ SCA57108 - 1ASSP00863

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

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.

Easy Job, except for lower control arms
I actually purchased the Front struts and the suspension kit that included lower control arms, inner and outer tie rods and sway bar links. Everything went together without a problem except for the lower control arms. They were a bear. Once I figured out the the rear bushing needed to go in first it wasn't that hard, but the video makes it look much easier. I am also disappointed that the kit did not include or mention the need for new steering rack to inner tie rod bellows/boot which it does not include. I didn't change inner tie rods for this reason.

Excellent strut assembly
Equal or better than OEM. Arrived nicely packaged and on time. Replaced in my driveway with a few tools and a friend's help. Already drove 4 thousand miles and not an issue. Best cost/benefit on the market.
