Ford Escort Mercury Tracer Strut & Spring Assembly - 1ASFK00042

Warranty & Shipping
Product Reviews
Vehicle Fit

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!)

Great Fix
Ordered these strut/spring assemblies to repair a friends 1998 Escort. The parts arrived within 3 days in good condition. The fit was excellent, no mods needed allowing for easy assembly and the car now drives great. These strut/springs assemblies are a great fix and a great deal.
