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 replacing with just bare struts. 

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.

Installed on Armada 4x4
Easy installation because it was loaded assembly. Good price, and so far after a week of installation seems to be holding good. My only issue is when compared to original shocks, the lower eye ring hole is not as beefy. The metal ring hole is almost half the width of the original shocks ring. I am afraid they will break if I go off road. But I measured the weight, and noticed those new ones were 2.2 pound heavier than the original, so hopefully they hold well on the dirt roads.

Leacree worse struts made
Now I know why the name brand of theses struts are not listed on the website. Would not recommend these struts to anyone..I will be returning and going with Monroe. They turned out to be Leacree struts made in China.. The ride is horrible, loud, bounces, bottoms out going over speed bumps...etc.. However everone at 1A Auto have been great.

Installed on 2008 Armada LE
Job took approximately 1.5 hours from start to finish. The video helped tremendously and the shocks are riding wonderfully so far. Replacement was a breeze and were a perfect fit.

Perfect fit for my 2009 Armada
I installed these on my 09 Armada this weekend. The install was smooth. It's so nice to buy the loaded assembly and not have to worry about spring compressors. The assemblies that I took of were so shot that these feel like a dream. It does seem a little bouncy though, but I'll let them settle in and see how it goes. Can't beat the price or the service provided by 1A auto.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, I bought these for my 07 4x4 Titan and they were a direct replacement
After installing the shock & Spring assembly on both sides, I noticed that my truck is definitely raised in the front. Is this normal? Does it level out?
Daniel O on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: After a while of driving with the new strut and spring assemblies installed the front of your vehicle should drop to regular height. The reason for this is that the new coil springs need time to level out with the vehicle weight applied and tighten up for a lower overall height.
