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 

Lifetime Warranty

Quick and easy
The strut assemblies make it easy to change struts. I only wish the shocks included shock mounts because I had to run to the local parts store to get them. Overall I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.
