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 

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!)

The Struts fits perfectly!!
Purchased these set of struts for my old Toyota Camry 1999 and they do fit perfectly, I'm not a mechanic but I just want to save on labor cost so I decided to DIY. I can say that anyone who is comfortable handling tools and brave enough try doing it will find it very easy to install them. I managed to do it about a day and a half but I'm sure some people can so it in a day. First time for me and I did my research on the installation and with great help from the video on your website it made it look easier to do it myself. Thanks to you my old Camry runs like new.

Strut & spring assembly for Toyota Camry
I was super impressed with 1A-Auto for the following reasons, 1. the online cost was the best deal! 2. shipping was free! 3. I received the strut & spring 4 peace set in 3 days! 4. The online video totally helped! 5. I was able to replace all four strut & spring assembly's myself on a Saturday. Local repair shops wanted about $600 in labor to install all four. I was able to use that money saved for new tires. and still had some money left over to take my wife out for Mothers Day. Thank you 1A-Auto.

Rides like new.
The struts I received from 1A Auto were a perfect fit. The car rides like new and handles my 2-hour commute both ways to and from work like a dream. They installed easily and 1A Auto has instructional videos on their website to help with any questions during the process.
The price was SUPER reasonable and I was a little skeptical at first due to the "you get what you pay for" fact nowadays, but I would (and will) highly recommend 1A Auto to friends and family for parts purchase.

Can’t go wrong.
I’m new to home DIY mechanic work. But with help from 1AAuto videos I was able to fit all four assemblies to my 1999 Toyota Solara perfectly. The only trouble I had was removing the rusty sway bar links from my old assemblies (New York salt), which proved to be impossible, so I had to trash them. I also ordered the set of four sway bar links from 1A. I haven’t found another place that can beat 1A’s prices. Everything is solid. Everything was clean. I would buy these again, but I probably won’t have to because they will last the rest of the life of the car.

Struts and drums for 1997 Toyota Camry
It was a good price and my person who installed the products was happy that it came altogether. He said it was easy to put the struts on. He had my car put back together in 4hrs....

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.

Toyota struts
Very easy installation. No issues and my car suspension was like new. Wish I would have done this a couple years earlier.

Do not buy it
Just after a couple months on the roads the struts started to squeak. They are Chinese made and don’t last very long. Annoyed and frustrated coz I spent a lot of time on installing them and now they are just like my old ones. DO NOT PURCHASE THEM

Perfect fit
My order arrive three days earlier than excepted, They were a perfect fit everything went together just as it should. The ride seems to be a little stiff right now only because I think I was so accustom to the worn out struts. Overall very good.

Will these assemblies fit on a 1998 Toyota Camry LE V6?
Andrew K on Sep 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, these will only fit the 2.2L 4 cylinder models only.
Quick couple of question on this item (1999 Toyota Camry Front & Rear Strut & Spring Assembly 4 Piece Set L4 2.2L):
1) The website does not list the manufacturer / company - is it 1aauto's house brand? What's the warranty - is it still limited lifetime warranty?
2) Some of the reviews (not on this site) indicate that after market struts & spring assembly raises the normal ride height of the vehicle. I understand there will be some difference between worn out struts/springs and the new ones but does it cause any driving issues?
mos S on Jul 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don���t know the answer to the first question, but I���m 2 years in on my struts and they are still doing great. I do notice that they are stiff when it gets really cold outside, bumps feel more severe to me below 20 F.

I did notice an appreciable gain in approach angle after switching my worn out ones for these. Entering and leaving parking lots and such is now a ton easier. Also my tires are wearing much more evenly with the new struts.
How much for the posted to the UK?
