Shock AND Struts

An automobile's suspension is made up of shocks and struts. When driving, shocks reduce the bounce caused by springs and suspensions. Roll, sway, brake dive, and acceleration squat are also reduced. Moreover, struts support springs by providing structural support.

A strut is made up of different pieces

Factors such as tires, shocks, and struts affect your vehicle's handling and ride comfort. A strut consists of housing, coil springs, and damping units. Struts and shocks also degrade after some time due to continuous use.

Replace them at around 40,000 to 50,000 miles

When the vehicle is driven on rough or unpaved roads frequently or when hauling heavy loads, it may wear out faster. In either case, you should replace them between 40,000 and 50,000 miles. In the hands of an average driver, they'll last anywhere between 75,000 and 90,000 miles.
