Toyota Camry Solara Strut & Spring Assembly - 1ASFK00096

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.

My new favorite auto parts store
Product was quality at a great price and shipping was fast. Will check first with 1A for all parts. Installation videos are the best. The only thing I'd add is videos on tips of how to get old parts off. Ex: i had to use a torch and needle nose vice grips to remove sway bar from old shocks.

Great struts!
Would be 5 stars if the rear mounting bolts were factory length. I like the product and do not regret the purchase at all. Installation of the front was a breeze with a good set of tools, a lift, and some sense. The back was straight forward and simple for the most part but the mounting bolts located in the interior of the car at the top of the strut assembly were a little longer than the factory ones which made it a little more difficult and time consuming because of the limited space to work with but I managed to get them tightened and then took a trip from Tupelo, ms to panama, Florida. At first they were very rigid which I expected but by the time I made it home to Tupelo after a week in Florida they seemed to be much more forgiving with a smoother ride but still very supportive. These struts made my car handle like a new one and it's a 1998 Camry, if they last I would definitely recommend 1aauto full strut assemblies to anyone who needs struts and wants to do it themselves or even if they have someone to install them for them. For the price of this full assembly I am 100% satisfied especially when compared to a full assembly of oem struts from Toyota which would have been more than $800 in parts alone.

1998 Camry strut spring assembly
I installed all 4 assemblies in 4 hours. The video was very helpful. Great improvement to handling and stance. Took about a week for springs to settle in, but now the car sits about 2 inches higher than the tired old ones and doesn't feel like it's wallowing or bottomed out all the time. Wish I'd done it years before.

1999 Camry easy strut swaps
Watched the YouTube video and walked me through step by step. Assemblies bolted right in and had new hardware. Ride is amazing. Couldn't get parts cheaper anywhere without the springs!

Struts
Ordered the struts for my car online hoping I would have no issues and I didn’t. Struts were identical to the stock ones. I have to say they work very well for the price. Loved the price and I’m loving the feel of the ride.
