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

Pre-assembled, loaded strut & spring assemblies allow for a quicker, safer install than replacing with just bare struts. 

Trouble-Free Install

Trouble-free install includes the matched parts needed to get the job done. New mounts, bearings, springs and hardware will provide a better ride for your vehicle and save you time from not having to do the job again because a used part failed afterwards.

Matched Parts

When you buy the kit pre-built by us, you can be sure that the parts are matched for optimum performance.  Not all shocks and struts are manufactured the same, so mixing and matching can result in fit issues and potentially decrease the life of the parts.

Saves Time & Money

When you buy one of our kits, you not only save money over buying the parts individually, but you also save time having to search for all of the different parts that are correct for your vehicle (because we did it for you!)

Lifetime Warranty

This item is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. In the event this item should fail due to manufacturing defects during intended use, we will exchange the part free of charge (excludes shipping charges) for the original purchaser. Please keep your invoice for proof of this warranty.

Happy with front strut pair purchase for my old Buick
Ordered the strut assembly pair for my old 2002 Buick Park Ave ( that still had the OEM struts installed - broken coil spring was reason for replacing) on a Friday and received on Wednesday the following week. Well packaged and struts look like good quality and the same size as the OEM that I replaced them with. Good fit. Easy to install. Definitely improved ride quality. The old ones were starting to 'role' more. Only issue so far is the front end of car sits an inch or so higher than the old struts. We'll see if they settle after some time. Overall happy with the purchase, good quality at a fair price. Hard to beat the warranty also. We'll see how they do after a few thousand miles.
