Strut/shock replacement?

Not having any problems with them yet but getting road magnet mids installed soon and figured while they are working there, should I just replace the struts/shocks? I know this depends on many factors but I have about 50K miles on them.

Huge difference in what way ? Assume it is better. Can you let us know, is handling better ?, ride quality ?

Re: Strut replacement?

handling is better, suspension is stiffer, can take corners faster with less body roll...overall just feels like a tighter ride not like a 5000 pound SUV that it is.
