Exact fit
Im not going to lie, the driver side was a pain to put in. As far as the parts though, they fit great and seem durable. I save almost $300+ on parts alone. This isnt my first purchase from this website and it wont be my last.

Perfect fit
Was a little nervous about ordering parts online, considering there are three different options for parts at my local parts house. Not to mention that the parts were an extra 55.00 locally. Everything fit perfectly.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Is this part greasable?
James U December 23, 2016
Most of our parts, based upon the manufacturer we receive them from will be pre-greased to avoid future greasing. In some cases however they will come with the grease fitting and you may apply grease whenever you choose.
