Default Shock Replacment

Nearing 100,000 on my 2010. I haven't replaced anything in the suspension as of yet. Noticed my rears are starting to show moisture, and rear tires are showing uneven wear. After a quick search, it seems OE is the only option at 80 a piece.

Has anyone else been down this road yet with rear shocks or front struts?

Thanks,
J

Air Bags in rear are another option.

Additionally, i am not having any cracking/bump sounds from the struts, so what are thoughts on replacing mounting bracket? I am on the side on not having to replace.

I researched this a few months ago, and KYB was supposed to be coming out with rear replacements for the SHO. Don't know if they have yet. Their on-line catalog had a part number and everything, but no one had them in stock. And somewhere I read an anticipated release of Q3 2013.
