Infiniti I35 Nissan Maxima Strut & Spring Assembly Pair - 1ASSP00442

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 
Pre-Assembled

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!)

Struts & Springs
When my mechanic told me I needed front struts, I had no idea what parts to order. 1A Auto helped me figure it out and the parts were very reasonable. My mechanic said "good job" on ordering the exact parts I needed and my nissan is running nice and smooth now. It takes the bumps and potholes on our roads and makes my ride great! Thanks 1A Auto.

Strut success
The ease of ordering, faster than expected delivery, and simple to-the-point video made for and exceptional repair job on my step-son's car. You guys are now my go-to auto parts supplier. In the marketplace it is very hard to top all three: exceptional quality, service, and price, but you've found a way. Thanks!!

Great Struts-bad bracket for brake line
Installed front two struts in 90 minutes - just like in the video! Spent the next 3 hours trying to get the brake line secured to the new strut. Had to take it to an auto shop where they grinded the attachment hole bigger on the bracket so the retaining clip could attach.

The retaining clip almost fits with the original hole size. Don't waste your time! Drill the hole bigger and finish the job.

The car drives like a new car with the new struts!
