Need advice on shocks.

5097 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.

Rotating the tires definitely would have helped prevent the unusual wear. Tires last longer (as a set) if rotated every 7500 miles or so.
I have found that bad shocks will also cause cupping issues. Once removed said shocks would press in and not extend again.
Cold weather is hard on shocks as well as bad roads. I have seen shocks go anywhere from 30,000 to 150,000 miles, so really no solid rule.
