If the struts were replaced at a shop, take the car back and tell them about the problem. A wheel could be loose, debris or corrosion could have gotten behind the wheel, or there could be an alignment problem.
As for the smoke, if it is white, that is coolant leaking through a head gasket and is the most common. Blue smoke is oil, and black smoke is too much fuel.
