The shocks and struts on a vehicle have a single purpose, to keep it from losing contact with the road. Without them, the frame would rest directly on the wheels, meaning there would be nothing in between to soften the impact. What’s the difference between shocks and struts? They both perform the same function, they just have a different design. The former is a structural part of the suspension system, and the latter is not. Regardless of whether your GM vehicle has shocks or struts, you shouldn’t run into any issues until after the 4- or 5-year mark (60,000-100,000 miles). When it does come time to replace them, experts suggest using genuine OEM shocks and struts to ensure they last as long as possible. Not sure where to shop for suspension system components?
