I am trying to find out if my vehicle has shocks, struts, or both.
My car has 95000 miles.
Shocks and struts perform the same job - to control the ride. They just have different designs for different suspension applications. Your vehicle has struts on the front suspension and shock absorbers on the rear suspension. Note that, depending on how your vehicle is equipped, it can also have height adjustable struts and shocks.
