A shock refers only to a shock absorber in the suspension system. A strut does the same thing, but they usually are integrated with a large coil spring. The front struts on a vehicle are integrated into the steering and suspension and have a bearing at the top. Google some picks and the difference will become obvious.

They don't interchange if that's what your thinking. They are 2 different kind of parts
