Volkswagen Beetle Golf Jetta Strut & Spring Assembly Front Pair - 1ASSP00046

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.

Jetta Struts
The product was shipped quick and arrived promptly. Items were NEW condition and completely assembled for easy installation. The install video was awesome and helped to make everything simple. So far I am impressed with A1 auto. If these last as long as my factory struts I'll be overjoyed.

Works great!
These struts replaced the 17 year old existing ones on my Jetta. The installation is not for the faint of heart but being motivated by cheapness it was worth the effort! Very happy with the outcome! Inexpensive struts and fast shipping returned my ride to like new!

How can these sell so cheap?
I've been looking around for my 03 GLI and you guys cut the competition in half!
I know their generic from China, but still..
Jesse T on Jan 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are able to sell these so cheap is due to the amount of bulk we purchase from our overseas vendors. Prior to the parts being sent to get labeled, we have them sent to us in bulk and we label them upon receipt to our warehouses as a 1A Auto brand. We offer a limited lifetime warranty in the event of failure for as long as you own the vehicle.
What brand are these?
Pete M on Mar 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have a few different aftermarket companies build these parts specifically for us, as our 1A Auto house brand. They are manufactured to the same OEM specifications as the original part that came with your vehicle and are covered by a lifetime warranty. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Why do pictures not show lower mounting while your YouTube vids advertise a part with lower mounting included?
Carus S on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Jetta has a sleeve type lower mount while the golf and other VW models of the same year may have a "bolt-up" style lower mount with 2 bolts-nuts.
