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

Great price. Good product.
Price is well below brick & mortars. Welded nut for the brake line mount broke off at the slightest pressure. Since it is a square instead of normal nut, and due to the weld spots, it was difficult to tighten. Managed to get it snug, but not sure tight enough.

How do these shocks and struts compare to Monroe shocks technology?
Calkid49 on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I couldn't tell you how they compare to Monroe but they are good. Easy installation. Have had them for 40k so far and still good. Put a lot of weight in my car with no issues.
