Part Details

  • Quantity:   Pair

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!)

Extremely satisfied
Perfect fit, lowest price! And I checked everywhere, very fast delivery. Just to be sure of my part lookup I called and the staff was pleasantly helpful. Will check 1aauto before anyone else when I need parts again.

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.

Adequate
Parts arrived quickly and undamaged. Instructional video was truly helpful. Installation wasnt 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.

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 wont spill the other 9 beers. Thanks 1AAuto!

Front Strut Assembly
I really liked the fact that these were completely assembled quality units. They were easy to install and the price combined with free shipping was awesome! I will definitely be ordering more parts from 1A Auto!

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.

Seems to be good quality. Bolted up fast. Packaged nicely.
September 15, 2017

Awesome product and quick delivery
I no sooner ordered the struts and magically they appeared on my door step a few days late. I called my mechanic and he was not only happy that I ordered from 1A Auto but wasnt shocked at the fast delivery. He said he has always been impressed with the product that they supply but if there was a problem it would be handled immediately. Thanks Jeff Haner

Fair price for a good product
I am very pleased with the quality of the product and the ease with which it installed. It has given a smooth ride and very good handling control of the vehicle. There is no rattling or other noise from the front end and everything went in to place without any wrestling or need of prying to get them in place

The Chevy Traverse Front End Noises are GONE!
Part was as described and installed with ease in minimal time. The front end noises are now gone and the ride quality is restored. Would recommend 1A Auto and their parts (and installation videos) to anyone looking to DIY to save yourself a bunch of money.

The struts are quality constructed and look as good as the factory struts. The price was extremely good and they were an exact perfect fit. Couldnt have purchased any better.

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!
June 22, 2018
Everything was exactly as stated
This product was an exact match and the video was spot on and in just a couple hours, my car was riding like a new one. I highly recommend this product.

struts
Found out about 1AAuto from a friend and looked up parts Ive 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 didnt 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 its original feel. Thanks

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.

Rear strut replacement
Bought rear struts for GMCAcadia. Price was perfect and quality of part met expectations. Mainly bought the part due to the comprehensive instructional video clearly explaining installation procedure. Struts are performing well, ride much better, added a little front level as well. Over all very happy and will be buying additional parts as needed.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
WHO IS THE MANUFACTURER?
Michael F April 13, 2017
Dont know but they work very well
Gerry F April 13, 2017
These are our 1A Auto brand struts, and made to meet or exceed OE specifications.
Alex P April 13, 2017
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
Nick P April 14, 2017
does this include the actual bearing, or just the bearing plate?
Casey B June 24, 2017
Everything including the bearing
Gerry F June 24, 2017
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
Eric B June 24, 2017
This product is completely assembled and read to be installed all you have to do is remove the old one from your vehicle and replace it with this one you have to do nothing else .
