How-To & Tools

Part Details

  • Quantity:   Pair

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!)

What brand are these?
Pete M March 19, 2016
brand from what I remember was not on the box. They fit perfect and preformed as expected, so, to me, that wasnt an issue as much as the great price
Paul O March 19, 2016
Sorry I dont remember I got rid of the car a week after I put them in and that was last year..I did ask the mechanic if they were good and he said yeah
Vinny P March 19, 2016
Even though they are from china I have had them for close to a year. I did also an alignment and are still doing good.
Richard R H March 19, 2016
I think its a generic brand .no sure but so far they good for the price. no difference between the other brands
Abel L March 19, 2016
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 dont hesitate to ask.
Brian F March 21, 2016
How can these sell so cheap? Ive 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 January 13, 2017
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.
Alex P January 13, 2017
Why do pictures not show lower mounting while your YouTube vids advertise a part with lower mounting included?
Carus S November 24, 2017
What do you mean lower mounting? It slides into a sleeve then you tighten the sleeve bolt to lock it in place.
Pete P November 24, 2017
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.
B R February 17, 2018
I can put these in my mrk 4 beetle 2.0l to get a lift right?
George C September 1, 2019
For the Beetle, these parts will only fit the 1998 to 2010. These are meant to be a direct replacement and will allow to ride at the stock ride height. Thank you for the inquiry!
Andra M September 2, 2019
These struts worked fine on my VW Jetta, they restore the factory height. Most likely will work fine on a beetle.
T I September 3, 2019
What is the difference between this strut and spring assembly and the non-sport version? How do I know which one I currently have?
Jacob Y March 23, 2020
We would be happy to check to see which one you have if you are able to provide us with your VIN. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

Jetta Struts
Parts were exactly what I needed and exactly what I ordered. Fast shipping!
July 7, 2017
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!
July 29, 2017
Installation was straightforward & went smoothly. I would, without a doubt, recommend the product.

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!!!

Perfect Fit
The struts were as advertised. First time ever replacing struts so the first one was a little tough getting everything loose to replace. The second one drop into place with no issues. So far so good with the ride. Thank you!
May 13, 2019
Did not last as long as I had thought
At my 300k timing belt change (2001 Jetta TDI), my mechanic noticed the gap between the top of the strut and where it mounts. I bought these as finding the assembly at local stores was unsuccessful. The passenger side is pretty much impossible without removing the lower control arm, so 20+ hrs of grueling work I got them both installed. Now at 326k miles they seem to be just as wore out as my last ones. Shipping is fine, it is the time we cannot get back under the warranty
May 21, 2019
VW parts
Very good quality parts at a reasonable price. And install was smooth
July 31, 2019
Easy replacement
This set was just what the doctor ordered. VW beetle tdi has got some new life in the front end now.
December 15, 2019
Strut Assemblies
I’ve put about 500 miles on them so far and they’ve held up well. No noticeable settle or sag. Comfortable ride quality, and appropriate stiffness. Easy install, overall quality parts.
January 14, 2020
Quality and price. Unbelievable free shipping is great.
