Volkswagen Beetle Golf Jetta Strut & Spring Assembly Pair TRQ SCA56982 - 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 

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!)

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.

The quality of these after the repair is wonderful! Nothing like a car with new replacement parts. I am so impressed by this company. The videos are easy to understand and follow. I just replaced both lower control arms buying from 1A Auto!!!

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.
