Happy customer
Good price and fast delivery, thank you very for the parts and will use you guy again!!!
July 5, 2017
Awesome price on a perfect fit!
Great product! I bought it and paid to have the pieces installed as the job was a little beyond my abilities. Same parts wouldve cost me twice as much if I had bought them locally. I will use 1A again if I ever have a need because the price was the best I could find on the web, they have an awesome website with great detailed videos and the parts came very quickly I believe I had them at my doorstep 2 days after I placed my order.

I was not impressed with the design on the ball joints. The rubber boots do not appear to come off, which made it difficult to install with the ball joint press. There was no extra lip for the press to push on.

Will this fit my car? Add a vehicle to make sure
