Default Time to replace the shocks on my 2006 Vue

I got my Vue new in 2006 and it presently has 37,000 actual miles on it. The shocks seem to have no recovery on them so it is time. Can any recommend a pair of replacement shock for front and rear for the Vue. I have only had one problem with the Vue since I have owned it, and that was the anti-lock brakes needed repairs. So I am taking the car into my local shop to have them go over it head to toe to look for anything questionable.

Thanks in advance,
Kevin E.

I installed a pair of Monroe 911258 Reflex at 105k mi. They seem fine.
I haven't done front struts yet - you might want to look at this thread . . .

You're just giving them a blank check. If ain't broke don't fix it. 37,000 miles? I haven't replaced rear shocks on 200,000 mile models and the front struts were worn but usable. Why do you think they need to be replaced at such low miles?

Many shops will give you a free once over when you get an oil change or other simple service, and that would be a better way to see if it needs anything.
