Shock & Spring Assembly Front Pair TRQ SCA61072 - 1ASSP00402

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

Pre-assembled, loaded strut & spring assemblies allow for a quicker, safer install than replacing with just bare struts.  No spring compressor required! 

Trouble-Free Install

Trouble-free install includes the matched parts needed to get the job done. New mounts, bearings, springs and hardware will provide a better ride for your vehicle and save you time from not having to do the job again because a used part failed afterwards.

Matched Parts

When you buy the kit pre-built by us, you can be sure that the parts are matched for optimum performance.  Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same, so mixing and matching can result in fit issues and potentially decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

When you buy one of our kits, you not only save money over buying the parts individually, but you also save time having to search for all of the different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Lifetime Warranty

This item is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. In the event this item should fail due to manufacturing defects during intended use, we will exchange the part free of charge (excludes shipping charges) for the original purchaser. Please keep your invoice for proof of this warranty.

Easy replacement
I think this is my second review for these parts. The struts went in fairly easy. It was more of a problem in taking out the old struts. They fit very well and I would recommend them as a replacement strut.

Great product, great price, great service
I ordered these and they were under half the price than from my local auto parts store. They fit perfectly and the ride is like new again. I did not have any trouble with the vehicle sitting higher and did not have to adjust the headlights, etc as other reviews had mentioned.

Shipping was in just a few days and was free! Their videos are helpful as well. I just ordered more parts from them.

Great experience
Ordered thes strut assemblies because the didn’t require a spring compressor to re use old springs. Instructional video was awesome and made the job easy and the parts were perfect. This is not the first part I have bought from them and won’t be the last. Great company!!! 10 stars

Excellent product!
After receiving an estimate for over $850 to replace both front struts on my 2008 Sierra, I decided to do a little research and after reading all the reviews, purchased the struts from 1a auto. They were an exact fit and the helpful video made it look easy, and in fact it was easier than expected. I highly suggest purchasing these struts for your vehicle especially having a helpful video. Thanks 1AAuto!

Waited too long
My Sierra had 105K on it and the nose was sagging. I have a front hitch to put my boat up a long curved driveway and had to get a 4" raised hitch a few years ago because of it. Wouldn't have had to do that if I had done the struts/springs then, the new Monroe shocks also leveled the backed which had been 3/4" off level.

Will these struts work with a leveling kit. Where the block is on the bottom on the strut not a spacer plate up top?
Brett S on Feb 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: After installing these you won't need to level because when I installed mine a while back my Yukon sits higher than factory shocks.
2007 ltz Tahoe 4in suspension lift how do I know if I have electric suspension ?
john r on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Every vehicle that GM produces comes with a sticker listing the alpha-numeric codes of all of the vehicle's options. These are known as RPO codes and can be very useful when trying to determine what type of suspension your GM SUV has. There are 3 different "styles" of suspensions that these vehicles come with.

Conventional: there are numerous RPO codes for different types of conventional suspensions, the most well-known being Z71 and Z66. These suspension codes are interchangeable and standard aftermarket shocks will fit any type of conventional suspension. This suspension uses the most basic components: a coil spring or torsion bar spring with a conventional gas charged shock absorber. The Bilstein Heavy Duty and 5100 Series or the KYB Monomax and Gasajust are popular performance replacements. The KYB GR2 and Monroe Reflex and Sensatrac are good quality OEM replacement shocks.

Premium Smooth Ride: indicated by the RPO code ZW7. This suspension uses a conventional suspension in the front, but the rear uses a self-contained, self-leveling Nivomat shock in the rear. ZW7 equipped trucks come with a softer spring in the rear since the Nivomat self-leveling system does some of the work of holding the truck up. Replacing a ZW7 Nivomat unit with a standard shock requires also replacing the spring, otherwise the truck will sag in the rear and have a much harsher ride and potentially dangerous handling.

Autoride: indicated by the RPO code Z55. This suspension system uses electronic shocks in the front that automatically adjust to road conditions, becoming stiffer or softer as necessary. The rear will use an electronically controlled self-leveling air shock that is monitored by ride height sensors and inflated remotely from an on-board air compressor.
I have a lift will these still fit?
Matt S on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what type if lift you have. Does your model just have spacers on top of the OEM strut plate? If it does then just match your vehicle i the fit list.
Hi is this a pair for 160.95?
Mark G on Mar 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is for a pair of these assemblies. Thanks!!
Is this for 2wd trucks?
Ewvande on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these will fit 2WD models.
Found y'all from your YouTube videos, thank you for those. I'm hesitant to buy these because you don't specify who made the parts. Care to address my concerns (in the age of cheap Chinese "OEM" knock-offs)?
Daniel C on Sep 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Daniel. 1A products are good, however these springs didn't work for me. I have an Escalade and need the power springs. Just procrastinating on sending back. Hope that was helpful.
Do these strut assemblies come with spring seat bushings ?

What brand are these struts?
Brian P on Oct 12, 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.
