A shock absorber has one simple purpose. And that's to keep the car from bouncing. Struts on the other hand provide support for the vehicle's suspension. Shock absorbers give you better handling while struts affect riding comfort as well as control, braking, steering, wheel alignment and wear on other components including the tires. So how often do shocks and struts need to be replaced? This very much depends on your driving conditions but as a rule of thumb most experts agree they should be replaced every 50000 to 100000 miles. Driving on bad shocks and struts can lead to a variety of
problems. Most notably bad shocks and struts increase your stopping distance which can lead to some bad crashes
