You talking the shock as in the center part of the strut. Those are pretty expensive. May hundred bucks per one for a decent one. Plus labor maybe around four hours total. Plus an alignment that there adds up to 800. Are you sure you need new ones?

Usually a car is softer when shocks degrade same with springs. Unless they get near the ends of their compression limits. Then you will feel it. Shocks can be bought for what kind of ride quality that you are looking for. Usually badshocks are known when you hit a bbump and car bounces way up and down fora while after the bump. Kind of like being on a boat hitting a wave
