Strut & Spring Assembly Pair TRQ SCA57164 - 1ASSP01036

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.

Great Fit
These struts fit great and installed very quickly. It only took 2 hrs and 3 beers to get these installed. I now have a much more stable ride so I won't spill the other 9 beers. Thanks 1AAuto!

Adequate
Parts arrived quickly and undamaged. Instructional video was truly helpful. Installation wasn't too bad, I broke a couple of tools, make sure you use 1/2 inch drive for the 24mm strut nuts and 3/8 drive for the 8mm tie rod. And check the alignment afterwards, some of these parts can move around quite a bit.

Excellent customer service
From the very beginning it was obvious that customer service was a high priority. All of my questions were answered prior to purchasing this product. The strut assembly was exactly what was advertised and at a huge cost savings. One of the struts was lost in delivery and 1A had the missing strut delivered to me within 2 days. Highly recommend this company.

great savings & great fit
Quick delivery. Feel and appear well built. Fit perfectly. Bolted right in. Feel great driving for the week since installation. 2012 GMA Acadia with home/shade tree install.

I would be surprised if they die before the factory set which spit the bit at 106K. Time will tell.

I received the struts in a timely fashion. My mechanic placed them on my vehicle and it is riding like a gem.

I will most definitely be using A1 Auto for my part needs.

WHO IS THE MANUFACTURER?
Michael F on Apr 13, 2017
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
