How Much Do Shocks and Struts Cost?

The vehicle shocks and struts are two different parts but work together to ensure a stable ride.  If you feel the car handles poorly and you can feel the impact of the road becomes more noticeable, then it may be time to change the shocks and struts.  Pep Boys says by the time your car has driven 50,000 miles, your shocks and struts have cycled more than 85 million times, causing quite a bit of wear and tear.

To put it in simple terms:  The struts are responsible for supporting the vehicle which allows it to conform to the roads, while the shocks are mostly responsible for absorbing the impact due to the roughness of the road, making them an essential part to your car’s suspension system.  If your car was built after 1995, then there’s a good chance you will have shock absorbers in both the rear and front assemblies.
