Cost of struts and how many on this car? on 2006 Honda Civic

My car is eating my tires! Then I learned it probably needs new struts. How much do they cost to replace? Do I need 4 struts or 2 just for the front? Help!

Struts are replaced in pairs either front or rear. If the shocks are tested and found to be weak or leaking they need to be replaced. You can see the price of shocks on a parts web site or www.rockauto.com, labor to replace is about 2.8 to 3.2 hours inclusive of alignment. A little longer for the rear.
