Fits like a glove.
Ordered from 1aauto for first time and came in as promised. I replaced them myself then aligned the wheels. Now it drives nice like a new sporty car. Love it. Indeed will come back and order from them again.

Almost perfect
I installed this kit in my 2010 Mazda 5 sport. I gave the review only 3 stars because I did run into some issues with the front struts. I had trouble with the brackets that are supposed to hold the brake lines. The opening was too small and the metal was a bit too thick to accept the factory fitting. I had to bend them wide open and tap the brake line in with a screwdriver and hammer and then bend it back into position. Also, the bolts for the top of the assembly are far shorter than the factory bolts. I had some trouble using the factory bolts and had to use the supplied bolts in a few of the holes which were not easy to get in. The rear shocks were easy peasy, as were the end links. The car rides almost like new now.

Very nice kit
Getting the kit was the only way to go it only make sense to replace the other items as they have just as many miles as the wore out parts. The olny reason I did not give it a 5 star is like the other reviews is the brake line hole is not quite right a little die grinder problem solved. So I did not this going into the purchase. It was a pleasure to get the correct parts the first time. Shipping time was fast. I also had a question about warranty before purchasing called and there customer service was fantastic. Will do business again and would recommend. I am retired service writer and my family still owns the repair shop and the technicians that installed my parts was impressed with the quality of the parts

Fast shipping.
Good parts. Install went pretty easy. Had a couple snags. Brake line mount needed a little massaging to fit. And I broke one of the strut tower bolts. Not sure if it was my torque wrench or a crappy bolt.

Great value for the price
Threw this kit on my Mazda 3 hatchback. Best bang for buck I could find on the internet and have had good luck with TRQ parts in the past so I rolled the dice. This kit fixed every loud clunk and rattle I had on my worn out suspension and returned the car to a very pleasant drivable state. Time will tell how they perform in the long run. Like others, the brake line bracket needed a little massaging, but it ended up working with a little elbow grease. Take note of the modified bolt/nut configuration on the sway bar links. Took me 5 minutes to figure out why they had no allen key, but the improved design made installation a breeze. I should have watched the how-to videos first. Thanks for the fast and accurate shipping 1A Auto.

Trustworthy
The items I received work amazing and the How To video is extremely helpful and informative. I always suggest 1A Auto to my automotive shop mates in college!!

Brake line retainer needed to be widened to fit the brake line correctly, but other than that fitment was perfect! Will buy from 1AAuto from now on. Can’t beat the price.

What brand are these part?
David B March 17, 2017
We have a few different aftermarket companies build these parts specifically for us, as our 1A Auto house brand. They are manufactured to the same OEM specifications as the original part that came with your vehicle. If you have any further questions, please dont hesitate to ask.
Tim K March 17, 2017
it is my understanding that 1a auto is the brand name , that is they make their own, and they seem to fit ok
Claire G March 17, 2017
I would love to help you out, but unfortunately I dont remember. I do know that they were of really good quality, and relatively easy to install. I basically installed the parts then sold the car.
MARK A March 19, 2017
Do these shocks apply for both automatic and standard cars? And does the engine size matter?
Erick L September 7, 2019
This is able to fit for automatic and standard vehicles. The parts are also not engine size specific. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
