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 

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!)

  1. step : Remove the top of the strut (1:07)
    • Lift the hood and secure it.
    • Remove the three 13 mm nuts in the engine bay securing the top of the strut.
    • Keep two of them loosely threaded just to keep the strut from flopping around while you work on the bottom half.
  2. step : Remove the wheels (1:37)
    • Use a 19 mm lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts.
    • Raise and secure the vehicle.
    • Remove the lug nuts and set the wheel aside.
  3. step : Remove the stabilizer link (2:03)
    • Use an 18 mm wrench and an 18 mm socket and ratchet to remove the stabilizer link.
    • A breaker bar can help get it loose, using the wrench to secure the back of the bolt.
  4. step : Remove the bottom of the strut (3:01)
    • Apply some penetrating oil to the two 18 mm nuts securing the strut to the steering knuckle.
    • Work the bolts out of the steering knuckle and strut.
    • Unthread the top two nuts and pull the strut down and out.
  5. step : Install the new strut (4:35)
    • Put the strut into place and thread one of the bolts through the bottom of the strut and the steering knuckle.
    • This secures the strut so you can secure the top three nuts.
    • Torque the two bolts at the bottom to 100 ft lbs.
    • Reassemble the stabilizer link.
    • Replace the wheel, using a star pattern on the lug nuts.
    • Torque the top three nuts to 20 ft lbs.
    • Torque the lug nuts to 100 ft lbs.

Half the cost of Auto Zone
I had my doubts, but when comparing costs and quality I couldnt find anything close to the 1A assembly, Everything mounted up perfectly and works great. Very happy!!

Fast delivery - great value and exact fit.
The strut assemblies arrived really fast, easy to install, very good quality, exact fit and great ride. I would recommend them and plan to use replace on my other car as well.

Perfect fit
This product was at a great price fast shipping and a perfect fit. Relatively easy to install once you are able to release the nut from the sway linkage, but that is no fault of the product.

09 Cobalt Struts
Perfect fit and great support. These were $400 + tax at AutoZone and I got them for $115 out the door at 1aatou. The customer support was top notch. Very rare to have a great quality product at a very reasonable rate with outstanding customer service these days. Thanks 1aauto!!!!

Exact replacement for OEM.
Very happy with the product. My only issue was when I called for technical assistance. (had difficulty removing the old one.) there was no one able to help when I called. My car was different than the instructional video.

Could not be happier
Price was good. Delivery was quick. Installation was relatively simple. 1A Auto online videos are really helpful. I would suggest that replacing the stabilizer bar links should just automatically be done when replacing struts.
