As your vehicle rolls down the road, the springs absorb the bumps and road irregularities. Shocks and struts dampen spring movement so the wheels and tires don’t move up and down too rapidly, and prevent the springs from continuing to oscillate after bumps. Without shocks and struts, your tires would bounce, so you would not only have a harsh ride but little vehicle control, since tires that are in the air instead of on the ground can’t make your vehicle accelerate, brake or turn.
