Default Rear shocks

I started having problems with both rear shocks getting squirrelly. I've been told that the only fix is dealer replacement of both shocks and the leveling sensors at about $700. Any help here is requested

actually your car has struts and with a service manual of somekind and a little mechanical abiltity you can chnage them yourself. I did and it didn't take very long

Your wrong. The 2000 + models all have air shocks and separate coil spring trailing link cast aluminum control arms with a lateral control rods and sway bar.
