Rear Shock Suggestions
 
Looking to replace the OEM rear shocks on my 2006 ZX4. The passenger side is leaking oil and squeaking over impacts.

I was looking at some possible OEM equivalents:

Gabriel Guardian
Gabriel Ultra
Monroe SensaTrac

There is also a KYB model for around the same price, but I've never heard of that brand before. I recently put Monroe's on my wife's Odyssey and they seem fine, about like new OEM shocks. I've read good things about Gabriel Ultra's too. Appreciate any suggestions or experience with any of these shocks.

Monroe's Senatrac's work pretty good. Have you thought about Motorcraft one's also? I'd also change out the front struts too.

look at the price of the rears for any of those you listed and then google: "M18000ZX3B"

Should be able to pick that up for about ~175 shipped and that's front struts, mounts, spring seats and rear shocks.
