Lifetime Warranty SOLD me on this seller!!!
November 30, 2017
Long story short. I bought some bad struts online, was told by alignment guy they were bad at the top plate Seller would not stand behind them. I called and the 1A associate guided me to the right struts for me and I got them, installed them, aligned the car and am really happy that my Element rides like new. The mechanic AND the alignment guy thought they were better manufactured and with better components than the ones I got from COMPLETESTRUTS on eBay. PLEASE DO NOT EVER GET ANYTHING FROM THEM, THEY ARE GARBAGE. The 1A associate explained to me the long relationship 1A has with their factory that assembles their products and it made my decision to buy from 1A very easy. VERY VERY happy with my purchase. Will buy more parts from 1A Auto
Satisfied again
March 25, 2018
Again I am very satisfied with the product that I just received last week with the purchase of headlight assemblies for 2004 Honda Civic. Thanks again for getting them out very quickly. we're looking forward to doing business with you again.H.C.R.
High quality. Fast shipping.
April 24, 2018
This is the second time I’ve ordered parts from 1a and I am overwhelmed with the speed of the shipping and quality of the parts.
Quality product
September 8, 2018
Switch out was easy and parts were well made. The car drives like new. I’ve been buying from 1Afor years and will continue to do so. Great company. Wish they had more videos.
Buy Honda Element complete strut assembly
September 15, 2018
A few weeks ago I bought a pair of a1auto struts for my 2007 element. Ease of installation was great. I m very happy that I bought them. They seem to be handling the demands of Atlanta driving quite well. Thanks!
January 10, 2019
The price, the ease of purchase, the parts and the timely shipping were more than I would have expected. Thanks for the best service, I am a first buyer but not the last time. looking forward to conducting more business and have already recommended you to others.
Great product
April 25, 2019
Product is made very durable. Same as factory. Only issue is the packing of the product for shipping. I received the struts with the box ripped open and the struts had some damaged spots. I checked with the mechanic to see if it was an issue. In the end all was well.

Convenient and Easy
August 31, 2019
Super easy installI. Just remember to recover the ABS sensor bracket from the old set. So far so good!
Completely satisfied!!!
May 1, 2020
I ordered the struts for my Element because of the YouTube video I saw of the extremely talented woman giving instructions on how to throw the struts on. How can I not buy from a business who would do that? The actual struts are great and they saved me around $700 if I would have bought them from the Honda dealer. Thank you so much.

December 27, 2017

All Element chassis are the same.
April 25, 2019
Having replaced strut assemblies before, I was not informed as to associated hardware needed. I.E. Bushings located at top of Strut Assembly on GM sedan. Do these Strut Assemblies come with ALL the mounting hardware and/or gear required or should I b
June 19, 2018
These strut assemblies are complete. There are no bushings at the top, but a bearing plate that simply bolts into the same place as the factory parts. Thank you!
June 19, 2018
Yes they with everything. I was very pleased with the product.
June 19, 2018
I did them a few months ago and they were ready to go. Disconnect the old ones put in the new ones.
June 19, 2018
Yes the struts assemblies came with all the upper hardware and bushings. The only thing you need to reuse are the two large bottom mounting bolts and the tie rod end bolt. I replaced the outer tie rod ends while I was doing the struts.
June 20, 2018
This product came with everything I needed

Everything was enclosed.

Is there a bushing on a strut ?
March 12, 2019
There is a bushing for the struts.
March 13, 2019
Is this made in China?
April 13, 2019
1A Auto's house brand parts are manufactured by various aftermarket companies specifically for us and built to your vehicle's exact OEM specifications.
April 13, 2019
What is the name of the electronic tool used to tighten the top of the struts at the end of the video? how can I make sure I tight the bolts with factory specifications without that electronic tool?
March 22, 2020
The electronic tool is a torque wrench. They come in electronic and mechanical varieties and can be purchased for under 100 dollars. A torque wrench is important for this job.
March 22, 2020
Thats a digital torque wrench . You can buy a regular one that isn't as expensive as the digtial.
March 22, 2020
The tool used is a digital torch wrench. Thanks for the inquiry!
March 22, 2020
Mary, mechanics use power tools to be more productive. These struts can be installed with hand tools. As for factory torque specs, they are available online and a torque wrench (which measures how tight a bolt or nut has been tightened) can be borrowed or rented. Hope this helps!
March 22, 2020
i do not use a torque wench for most repairs. I tighten fasteners evenly and approximately equal to the torque required to remove the fasteners. If I remember correctly, there were three fasteners that hold the top part of the strut in place. The strut itself was already set up. That is the important fastener/dimension/torque. The remaining bolts, top and bottom, only require general torque guidelines.
