Why would my 2007 4runner with 42K miles need struts and shocks? on 2007 Toyota 4Runner

My 4 runner is making a noise when going over bumps, sounds like an old car that needs greasing. I was told by Toyota dealer it needs struts and shocks and tires. I am a woman and drive mostly highway miles, can't understand why it would have this problem, not even paid off.

Take it to an independent Toyota specialist, get a second opinion and an estimate. If you want to find a Toyota specialist, here's our directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=78837&car_brand_names=Toyota

I love Toyota, drive one and work on mostly Toyotas but I see a lot of bad shocks on the 4Runner even at low mileage, get a second opinion but I would not be surprised if the shocks are in fact bad.
