1A Auto how to video sold me
March 26, 2017
I followed your video and installed these on my wife's car with no problem. 1st attempt at this kind of auto repair and it was pretty easy. Saved about $600 doing it myself.
Great product
June 26, 2017

Excellent service and product quality
September 25, 2017
One of the three upper studs on strut broke off when torqued. Customer service sent me the entire strut assembly quickly and without charge. I will return for future needs.
Great Service
October 31, 2017
First time using A1 Auto and was very happy with Service and Parts. I would order again when needed. Thanks again A1Auto also need to know if you carry any parts for 1986 Chevrolet El Camino.
Good value
November 28, 2017
The parts arrived early and were in good condition. Installation went smooth and was relatively easy (I'm not a great mechanic either). Make sure you have all the necessary wrenches before starting. These are good quality for the price but don't expect your car to ride like a Cadillac.
Good quality
December 5, 2017
Received my parts a little early than projected time frame. Parts received properly packaged, no defects upon arrival. Already installed new items into my SUV, everything fit great, nothing broke off in the process with proper torques, ride now drives nice and smooth. Awesome parts!!!!
February 22, 2018

March 15, 2018

May 17, 2018
I ordered the shocks and struts they came sooner than I expected I watched the install video again this made the install simpler, I have had them on over 2 weeks and they have made a world of difference.
Perfect Fit
July 8, 2018
Having the entire load shock and strut assembly together makes for a simple install. I love the videos, very informative and comprehensive with torque tolerances and socket sizes included.
Good product
July 15, 2018
Very easy to install and also no missing part too. I would recommend
Perfect fit great price
July 16, 2018
Watched the video and decided to give it a try. The customer service person I spoke to was very helpful and got the correct parts to me in a very reasonable shipping time. I was able to do a job that was quoted to me at 1100.00 from a shop for 300.00. Took a total of about 6 hrs.
Shicks and struts
August 12, 2018
Shocks and struts were an exact fit. Remove old and install the new part. Great price and delivery
Shocks and Struts
August 27, 2018
Perfect fit, the price was very economical. Shipping was exactly as promised. This is the 3rd time I have ordered from this company and I would definitely buy from this company again.
Timely shipping and good fit and performance.
September 11, 2018
I didn't want to spend the money to have my Traverse fitted with new struts and shocks so I ordered a kit from 1A and it arrived quickly. I had no issues with the install after watching the videos available and my ride has improved and should be good for another 100k miles.
Great service!
September 24, 2018
The products, and selections offered for my vehicle, were plentiful. Each of the descriptions and product information helped in the making of my decision. The prices were very affordable and the delivery was quick and painless. Thank you!!
Parts on time and great value
November 1, 2018
Parts delivered on time and everything looks good and fit correctly.
Quality parts, video is so helpful
November 11, 2018
These are quality replacements parts. Matched perfectly. I could buy similar from somewhere else but A1 auto saves me so much time and hassle by making these installation videos I will continue buying from them. This is not an easy job but if you are mechanically inclined you can do it with the right tools. Will need alignment afterwards.
Cant beat em
December 20, 2018
Price and time are number one for anyone and with 1 A Auto you can get parts fast and easy. Plus you get a warranty who can pass that up?
If they were all this easy

Struts and shocks
April 5, 2019
We ordered the complete strut assembly and shock absorber kit for our Chevrolet Traverse. The price was awesome. Delivery was free and quick. The parts came within 2 to 3 days. Had the parts put on and I have to say the quality of the parts was top notch. Will definitely be doing more business with 1AAUTO again. Can't say enough good about the company. Customer Service is #1. Reliable service and prices are low. Even our garage guy recommended them.
best prices ever and quick delivery
April 5, 2019
Not only was 1 A auto parts the cheapest place to order from they delivered the products to my door in a very timely manner. The parts fit perfectly like they said they would. Will recommend them to others and will use them again.
July 22, 2019
Every thing I was hopping for and at a reasonable price. I will use A1 auto again and I am recommending A1 auto to others.

TRQ Frint and Rear Strut assembly
October 29, 2019
For the price you can’t go wrong. The SUV stays on paved roads with some dirt roads and so far after a couple thousand miles they seem to be holding up so far giving a smooth ride. Provide good control and stability. Not sure how long they will last but for the price I’m happy so far.
Parts correct
February 9, 2020
Parts arrived sooner than expected. Went together and fit properly, was pleased with price and quality.
Awesome help
March 11, 2020
Excellent price and shipping! But the most important thing, the detailed video. It covered everything I needed and how to do the repair.
So far so good
April 6, 2020
I did this repair during COVID-19 quarantine so it hasn't seen a lot of miles. It does feel less sloppy than it did before. Like the title says, so far so good.
Struts and rear shocks
May 9, 2020
Very satisfied with the front struts and shocks for my 2012 Traverse. Prompt service and delivery. Fit right in and bolted up. Car rides like new now.
Great parts
May 10, 2020
Products arrived very quickly. Great replacement for OME parts. Would recommend.
Good quality for the price.
October 26, 2020
I was checking a good brand for my gmc acadia to change all 4 shocks one time. Feels so comfortable drive now and also the ride height also improved and good balance between driving and comfort. I wish they could sell steering rack and pinion also.
Quality Shocks & struts at a great price
May 23, 2021
After finding out about this site amd their how to videos, i feel like a genius.
Customer Q&A
Could you please tell me who this Shock & Strut Kit - 1ASSP01281 is manufactured by? Thanks for your time.
November 1, 2016
We have a few different aftermarket companies build these parts specifically for us, as our 1A Auto house brand. They are manufactured to the same OEM specifications as the original part that came with your vehicle. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
November 1, 2016
The new quick strut is not slotted. Is that something that should be done when aligned?
April 6, 2018
I had my local garage install them for me and they did a alignment for me as well
April 6, 2018
Are the springs on these the same diameter as the ones I'm taking off? I have a 2012 GMC Acadia.
April 9, 2019
Actual Measurements are not listed or available. Our parts are exact replacements for your vehicle's OEM parts. As long as your year, make, and model match up with our listing, these parts will directly fit and function like the originals.
