Suspension - What are shocks and struts?

Shocks and struts are safety components that maintain vertical loads placed upon the tires. This is accomplished by controlling spring and suspension movement to keep the tires in contact with the road. Shocks and struts function as a major part of a moving vehicle's suspension system. Shocks and struts are two-way Velocity Sensitive Hydraulic Dampening Devices - the faster they move, the more resistance they have.

Why do shocks and struts wear out?

Under normal conditions on a smooth road, shocks stroke on average 1,750 times for every 1 mile traveled. This equals 7.5 million stabilizing actions on average 12,000 miles (20,000 kilometers). Shocks and struts operate in an uncontrolled environment (weather, temperature, and road condition). Individual driving habits and the condition of other suspension components.
