Part Details

  • Quantity:   4 Piece Set

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.

Work great!
These parts fit my 02 Infiniti I35 just fine. The installation instructions generally pretty good for the front structs. There wasnt as much information for the rear struts, but it wasnt too hard to figure out what to do. I did end up needing to use a spring compressor on the rear struts in order to rotate the top into the right position. I tried just using a big screw driver to rotate the top, but there was too much friction from the rubber bumper.

Complete Strut Assemblies
First let me start off by saying I am NOT a professional. I like things simple; my coffee black, my scotch older and my cars faster. This is not my first time purchasing from 1A, but my first review so here it is: Using these was one of the better choices I have made. Watching the 1A Auto video that goes with the struts, the tools listed and a mere 4 hours later I had the struts, sway bar links and sway bar bushings installed and my Maxima back on the ground. It was really that easy. One piece of advice though: if the bolts line up in their top holes and the bottom doesn’t line up with the knuckle take a large screwdriver and rotate the bottom of the strut so it will line up. It may make a few loud popping noises, but you’ll be fine.
