Ford Taurus Mercury Sable Strut & Spring Assembly Pair - 1ASSP00017

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.

Perfect fit!
Parts arrived on time and were a perfect fit for my 2000 Taurus. The on-line "How to" video aided greatly in the installation process. Not quite as easy to do as the expert in the video made it look, but DIY do-able nonetheless. I ended up having to drop the subframe a couple of inches in order to get the new struts into the steering knuckle. The first side I did took a couple of days to soaking bolts in penetrating oil and figuring out the steps, but once I figured it out, the other side took about two hours from start to finish.

Junk
Did not improve anything. Everything is tight on the suspension but the struts are loud. Pops and ticks when going over bumps. The car has 180,000 miles, so he'll with it. The front rotors and pads are junk too. They get hot and start to make sounds.
Send the extra cash and get name brand or factory parts.
