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 

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.

Totally satisfied
So far so Good. I actually could not believe the price after calling and getting pricing from other companies. I could not get 1 strut for the price 1A auto had for the pair. I am sold and I have recommended your website to others.

Good so far
Bought this strut pair to replace the original equipment that ran nearly a hundred and eighty thousand miles. Probably should have changed them sooner but tire wear and ride really weren't that bad. The struts were simple to install and offer a decent ride. This Pontiac G6 is now a school car and still going strong

Good Product
These show up on time and good pricing. Looks like good quality parts. Well made. They do show up in different boxes from each other which makes you think something. But they are the same.

Is it a quick strut?
Jim B on Sep 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Quick strut I believe is made by Monroe. But this is the same concept, a fully assembled strut and spring. Makes it a lot easier to install. Comes with s lifetime warranty as well.
Does it come with one strut or two since it says come in pair?
Lyndsey P on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It comes with 2, one for left and one for right.

Terry K on Feb 4, 2016
