Struts are nothing more than shocks that are mounted in a coil unit. Like any other shock, when bad, they don't stop the vehicle from over bouncing. A quick test is to bounce the vehicle by hand and it should stop within three bounces when you stop.

On your vehicle expect to pay aprox 400 for replacement. Also, I recommend having a front end alignment after replacement.
