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.

They do the job
They work fine and installation was easy but they seem overly stiff to me after 1 month driving with them. Handling was improved. My other issue is that the Alignment shop showed the camber was off in the red on 1 wheel and close to red on others. These are not adjustable camber unless you also purchase camber adjusting bolts at an additional cost. If I do that I'll have to swap the bolts then get another alignment. I don't want to pay for that so I guess I am going to live with it for now.

You pay for what you get
I have a 2007 Lexus ES 350. I drive my car 60 miles a day roundtrip. Its my "hooptee" car to and from work. If this is what you use your car for then this will do. But I do hear noise coming from them after six months. The ride is very stiff but the price is good. On the same note if you use your car for other than this then spend the extra money, I wish I had. I would not recommend this product and I don't have the money to take them out and purchased better ones.

Lesson Learned - 1A Auto Needs to Drop these...
I love 1A Auto, and will continue to buy from them, but they should know that this is a product that falls well below their otherwise high standards.
While these were easy to install, the money I saved ended up costing me big time. Even after getting new tires, and a precision alignment, these are dreadful. Initially they were very stiff and I kept hearing a rattle. I took it to a suspension shop and had them make sure I installed correctly. They confirmed all was properly fitted and torqued, but told me I made a poor choice in brand and model. After 7 months, it's almost as though I did not get new shocks at all. Anyone in the back seat has to have a stable stomach because the bounce is unending, and depending on road conditions, quite severe.
Spend the extra money and buy a quality product.
I've learned my lesson.

Strut assembly
Good price but stiff ride and no camber adjustment. So the money I saved on the struts end up costing me in the long run as I had to have camber bolts installed which were pricey. Would not recommend these as the savings does not exceed the end cost to have it fixed properly.

Top quality for a great price!
1AAuto has a great selection of auto parts, brand name and unbranded. Everything I have purchased has for perfectly and done a great job of fixing my car. They had prices that couldn't be beat, and super fast shipping. The strut package was perfect for what I needed to do. I will definitely but from them again and refer my friends.
