    At 112k mi. My shocks/struts are toast. Rear tires are cupped and the fronts squeak when I go over a speed bump. so it's time to replace all four. What do you guys recommend? OEM or after market? And where do I get them?

    I replaced both rear shocks about 20,000mi ago with Monroe OESpectrum shocks and they have been great. They might be slightly stiffer than stock. They come with lifetime warranty.

    You can buy after market shocks and springs already assembled for really low prices online. I have had problems with them no fitting correctly and sending them back, but what I like about the aftermarket ones is you can visually see that they're a higher quality construction than OEM. That's not always the case with car parts, but with shocks it seems to be that way.
