My car is Excel manual sedan. I live in australia. I just bought it for $1000aud on 1997 Hyundai Accent

Im just wondering if the shock absorbers necessarily have to be replaced or can they be oiled or greased when there is a graunching noise. Also, the car jerks a little between the 2nd and 3rd Gear. Had new sparkplugs put in and replaced leads. Still does it at the speed of 40-60kmph. Would appreciate any answer. thanx
