Need advice on shocks.

5096 19
Had my tires replaced on the CTD yesterday and they said my rear shocks were not good. That's why I had some cupping issues on the rears. So I just wanted a bit of advice as to what you guys have used for shocks. Looking to maintain good ride quality and have a bit a sporty feel. Real world advice always rules. Thanks.

I have never rotated my tires. Maybe that's half the problem. But, I didn't think 60k on shocks was very good. I have really never heard of them even going bad.

Yes, my tires made noise and definitely wopped. The new tires are super quiet and definitely ride better than even when my original tires were new. They quoted me $478 for the shocks installed. Seemed pricey. I am just going to replace them myself. I youtubed it and the job seems REALLY easy and straightforward.

Good call on Tire Rack. Went online, they have them in stock. Spoke to their rep via chat session. $112 each shipped to my home. They will be there tomorrow. No charge for shipping. Thanks MP81...awesome information.

Drove in the snow last night. The Cruze used to be scary bad with the stock Goodyears on it. Just replaced them with Hankook H735's. It's literally a night and day difference. WAY better in the snow, quieter ride, better handling. No comparison.
