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!)

GMC Acadia front struts
I purchased a set of pre-loaded struts for a 2012 GMC Acadia. They have been on the car for quite some time now. They fit as advertised and have given me no issues. The price is much less than any auto parts store locally.

Found out about 1AAuto from a friend and looked up parts I've been wanting for some time. Replaced front struts on a 2008 Saturn outlook and parts fit perfectly in place as the original ones. The video was very helpful as well so I didn't have to look up tourqe spects. Time will tell about the quality and longevity of the product but looks and fells great. Ride is back to it's original feel.

Fit and price = excellence!
Ordered those for my 2012 GMC Acadia. They arrived quickly. Took me 2 hours today to replace my old worn out struts with the ones from 1A. They fit perfectly and I enjoy riding my vehicle again. Thank you 1A for a reasonable priced quality product!

Great experience
Strut installed easy. Had a difficult time locating a wiper arm remover. Was able to lift plastic enough to get the strut removed. Easy installation.

Easy as pie
I had been told how difficult this job could be.
With your attention to detail, I was able to have the correct tools on hand before I started the project and found the step-by-step guide worked excellent.
You made a scary job a piece of cake.

BEST ANSWER: i think the box was labeled UNITY. they work ok but was disapointed that the spring diameter or piston bore was not as large as the monroe i replaced
does this include the actual bearing, or just the bearing plate?
Casey B on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I put these on my 08 Acadia, includes everything... All you need to do is unbolt top 3 bolts on fender and bottom two at knuckle. So much easier than trying to switch springs and bearing plate etc. Hope that helps
