What is the benefit of shocks and struts replacement?

Shocks are part of the overall suspension, while struts are complete suspension assemblies. Not every vehicle has both shocks and struts. The two primary functions of shocks and struts are enabling ride control and dampening spring oscillation, preventing the vehicle from bucking on bad road surfaces. Replacing the shocks and struts improves vehicle performance and avoids wear on your tires and suspension parts, including the ball joints, springs, steering linkage, and other components.
