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.

Great parts!
Can't say anything bad about these parts! They arrived on time with no problems. The parts were just as described online. Fit great on my vehicle and replacing them was easy. I would recommend these parts to anyone looking to replace this particular assembly for the same vehicle. Great quality at a very great price. Will be ordering more parts from them soon for another vehicle.

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

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.
Who manufactures this item?
