Yes! Get a second opinion.
Don't tell the second shop what the first ones' diagnosis was. Instead just ask them to check your struts. They'll ask you if you've been having any problems. Your reply should be "No. Just want to make sure that they are in good shape for travelling."
Try to find a shop which will inspect your suspension system (an alignment shop) for FREE.
Please let me know how this turns out.
