How-To & Tools

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!)

Does this come with both passenger and drivers side rear struts and will it fit on my 2001 monte carlo 3.8L on 16 inch wheels?
Don J April 11, 2018
It does come with both driver and passenger rear struts but as far as knowing will they fit your 2001 Monte Carlo 3.8L on 16 inch wheels. That I don’t know my was a 2011 impala with sixteens. But fit mine and was the best price around by far. Great investment for me.

Perfect Parts
Ive ordered before from 1A and will continue to do so. No issue at any time and the replacement parts are also the perfect match each time. This was true of my most recent purchase of the strut/spring assembly for my 2004 Pontiac.

Good product from what Ive used so far. Great price and great value.

Rear Struts Purchase
I was very pleased with my recent purchase of a pair of rear struts for my sons car. They are a quality item at a reasonable price. I saved over 50% of what it would have cost me to purchase them from my local auto parts store. I also enjoy the well detailed car repair videos that you have online. It makes it so much easier to actually see it being done before I tackle the repair job on my cars and my adult childrens cars.
August 16, 2018
got what i expected
good parts on time only issue i had was removing the old ones once done these sprung right into place
December 23, 2018
Fit Perfect
I bought this part after watching the 1A Auto strut install video for my 2002 Monte Carlo. Shipping was fast, and the struts fit just like they are supposed to. If I need parts in the future, I will go to 1A Auto first.

Perfect Fit
The struts work great and fit perfectly, I havent had time to install the engine and tranny mounts yet but they look good quality and just with the few pieces I have replaced I notice an immediate difference.
March 21, 2019
Excellent product fast shipping and extremely great price will definitely be doing more business with 1A Auto
March 29, 2019
Very surprised at the Quality difference from Stock!
When the package arrived and ready for installation, I was very surprised at the quality difference compared to the stock Strut Assembly that came out. While seeing them side by side we were very pleased at the stout difference. Made better, the vehicle sat better, and rode much better! Im confident that this vehicle wont ever need these Strut Assemblys changed again. Plus compared to elsewhere, especially local "discount" Auto Parts stores, the price was MUCH less! Hope this helps, the few days it might take to arrive is well worth it plus the package shipped immediately!
