Strut & Spring Assembly Pair TRQ SCA57036 - 1ASSP00426

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!)

Perfect Parts
I've ordered before from 1A and will continue to do so. No issue at any time and the replacement parts are also the perfect match each time. This was true of my most recent purchase of the strut/spring assembly for my 2004 Pontiac.

Does this come with both passenger and drivers side rear struts and will it fit on my 2001 monte carlo 3.8L on 16 inch wheels?
Donnie on Apr 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It does come with both driver and passenger rear struts but as far as knowing will they fit your 2001 Monte Carlo 3.8L on 16 inch wheels. That I don���t know my was a 2011 impala with sixteens. But fit mine and was the best price around by far. Great investment for me.
