Well I find that hard to believe that the shock is still ok after so many miles, but ok I guess. usually replacement for back and front at about 100k, but not 100% all the time.
The main thing is to measure the ride height and if low, something has to be done. If under .5" low in the back then has to be fixed or rear tires will wear.
To save money I put in Monroes in 4 9-5's, two are gone now, but at 200K will have to replace the remaining ones in the 2 9-5's that are left. I liked them, they were fine, not sure if I will replace with Monroes or go a bit better.
The wagon and the sedan (non-aeros) both have 1.5" lifts. I tried replacing the springs, but that was a waste of money.
