The struts or shocks doesn't wear out any quicker, the struts or shocks are just valved differently or have different oil in them to give you a firmer ride. Also the springs can be stiffer to give you a firmer ride. The firm ride is to make the car handle better at the cost of comfort. Also most newer high end vehicles use electronics to control the dampening, buy allowing the driver to change the way the suspension feels from firm to comfort from a control from inside the cabin. Of course replacement cost is more expensive on this type of suspension. HTH's
