Toyota Camry Solara Strut & Spring Assembly Pair - 1ASSP00003

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!)

high quality and great ride
I recently purchased these struts for my 2001 camry, first off I was totally pleased with the cost. when I received the struts I was very impressed with the quality of the parts, and I can also add that after install which was a breeze the ride quality was just as good and quite probably better than the OE struts.Ii will have absolutely no reservations going to 1A for whatever parts I may need in the future. and the fact that they have a customer service phone number is a big and important plus. If I could....6 stars

Fantastic Product from 1A Auto
This product from 1A Auto made R and R so easy my Grandson who hardly ever turned a wrench on an automobile did the job in less time than I did the last time I replaced the struts on my VW Golf. We watched the video on YouTube then got into it. The Ride in his 1998 Toyota Camry is as new. Thanks 1A Auto.

Perfect fit and installed runs no issue
I bought same parts from RockAuto, little more expensive, but not fit although the web site says will fit. Also RockAuto is very hard to return parts (no human rep no email address can mail since they want keep cost low), their return site is like SAT test, one check box wrong, you dead, no longer authorized to return ! So I switched to 1A-Auto since I watched its video, What a difference, The rep carefully reviewed my request and picked parts form me over the phone. Parts arrived quickly, better package, better color, perfect fit to detail. I changed both side in 2 hours, Ride smoothly, What you can ask for more !

Perfect fit for my 1999 Camry
Fast delivery, perfect fit, raised the front 3 inches. Not scraping on driveway anymore. Not a rattle and clank sound crossing RR tracks. Great firm ride.

Good product & service -- need stronger strap for box
I ordered the pair and only received one box, not realizing there should have been 2 boxes. Did not know that until I took to my mechanic and he said there was only one side.

I called back and the customer care person was very apologetic, and took care of sending out a replacement piece right away, at not additional cost to me. She was very nice.

She said the boxes are strapped together when shipped, and the strap must have broken. My only suggestion is that you put a stronger strap on the boxes! One box was heavy enough.

JUST STRUTTING AROUND TOWN!
These struts were a perfect replacement for my old, worn-out, rattling, bounce-bounce-bouncy struts. Once the car was jacked up and on jack stands, it took me only about 30 minutes per strut to remove and replace them. Took the car out for a test drive, and no more noises and no more bouncing. Awesome!! The 1A Auto installation video was perfect. I feel like I can do anything to my cars just by watching 1A Auto videos. Will buy all my Camry parts from 1A Auto in the future.

BEST ANSWER: Purchased for son who lives 110 miles from me. I don't know possible need for additional hardware. If there was a need it wouldn't have been expensive because I wasn't contacted. Wish you luck.
