Strut & Spring Assembly Front Pair TRQ SCA56977 - 1ASSP00036

Part Details

  • Quantity: Pair
  • Front or Rear Location: Front

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 bare struts.  No spring compressor required! 

Trouble-Free Install

Includes the matched parts needed. New components over reused parts provide a better ride and save you from having to repair again.

Matched Parts

Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same.  Mixing and matching can result in ride quality issues and decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

Over buying the parts individually, or having to search different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Several 1A Auto purchases - all have been superior experiences
Just recently I have ordered front wheel drive parts for a 2002 Chrysler Sebring Limited and a 2000 Toyota Camry XLE and in both cases the parts arrived early and the orders complete - the parts fit exactly and greatly improved the ride of both vehicles. I will definitely use 1A Auto again and highly recommend your ordering service to meechnics that I know! Well done!

Are these gas or oil?
Marine on Mar 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Don't know. I bought these for my 97 Toyota Camry. It brought the front end back up about a 1/2 inch which improved the drive. No more knocking. So far so good.
Dear Sirs, What brand are these struts?
Steve on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not a name brand, but they made my 97 Camry brand new again. No problems so far. Easy easy install. Obviously do an alignment afterwards.
