Shock & Spring Assembly Front Pair TRQ SCA61069 - 1ASSP00135

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!)

More than I expected
I ordered the strut assembly from 1aauto.com and received the next day. The videos helped with the replacement of the old ones. Very pleased with 1aauto.com and the service they have provided.

06 f150 struts
No issues after I installed them I did notice I had to put the lower in first then twist the strut to align the upper three studs to there respected location. And that's y I choose to give a four star but no issues and it's been 3 weeks.

Made My Truck Ride Like Day 1
I had totally forgotten how smooth my truck rode until I changed out the front struts. 1 BIG reason I bought from 1A Auto was the very detailed and helpful DIY video instruction. I just took my time following the video step by step instructions and had no problems. Thanks so much!

Will these fit 2004 F��4 Supercrew
With 6" fabtech lift???
Littlej on Jun 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: if you're going to put a 6 inch Fabtech lift I don't know why you would want to put stock struts and springs in it. If you're going to use the six inch spacer that's up to you.
What brand is the shock?
Rich B on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 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 don't hesitate to ask.
I have seen several different videos of these struts being replaced but this video is the only one that removes the axle. If the job can be completed without removing the axle then what is the reason for removal?
Dick N on Apr 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: JJust better/more clearance if you remove axle, but it can totally be done without axle removal....there are videos on you tube that show it being done without removing the axles.
What is the length of the shock ?
John G on Jul 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't have the exact measurements. Our parts are designed to be exact replacements for what came with the vehicle, so as long as your year, make, and model match up with our listing, these will definitely fit and function just like the original. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

My 2005 Ford F-150 has a Fabtech 6" lift. With these still fit?
Jackie O on Dec 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Honestly, Im not to sure. We see that Fabtech has kits with and without front struts. The mounts do look different. I'd suggest you call Fabtech and ask them about other units. You MAY consider getting them thru Fabtech because of the 6" lift and your driving style, you may need something different than OEM.
