Shocks and Suspension Struts
Here's a shocker...
Shock absorbers don't absorb shock! They control bounce.
Have you ever looked at a vehicle in the next lane and noticed one of the wheels bouncing like a basketball? Sometimes the bouncing is so violent that you can see daylight between the road and the tire! When you drive on a local road that has a series of dips that you have to avoid because is feels like you may bounce off the road? When you stop suddenly, does the front of the vehicle dip down so far that you think the vehicle is digging for worms? Are the tires getting choppy with flat spots? These are all signs of dangerously worn out shock absorbers.
What does that have to do with suspension struts? A strut is a beefed up shock absorber that actually holds the suspension to the vehicle. Much of the shock absorber is hidden by the brackets, covers and the coil spring.
