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.

Struts made simple !!!
These strut and spring assembly’s are simple and easy to install. They take all the fear of working with a spring compressor and take it out of the equation. With minimal tools and working space I was able to change all four on my car by myself and under five hours. Also saved a lot of money not only on the product but also by doing it myself. The 1AAUTO.COM Video series is super helpful and it is the best amateur mechanics friend. They are so well explained that I’m sure some professionals have used them to help themselves. It was one of those experiences that you enjoy working on your car knowing ahead of time what you are going to get into and what tools you will need.

Strut & Spring Assembly for 2004 Chevy Impala
The parts arrived faster than the parts store in my town could be gotten them in. The price was way better and as soon as I received them I opened them and looked them all over. The quality is incredible and way better than I expected with such a great price tag.... I'm no mechanic just a single mom and I installed them myself watching the 1AAuto tutorials. I will make many more purchases from here and have told a bunch of friends about this place.
