I would like to upgrade the shock absorbers on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT. Should I go for Bilstein Shocks? They are on sale in 4wheelonline.

If the sale price is within your budget, get them. Bilstein has a top notch reputation for quality and performance. I considered them for my 79 TA restoration project, thought they were too expensive considering how I was going to use the car and other money considerations and purchased less expensive KYB units instead. Overall, you can't go wrong with Bilstein especially at a good sales price.

I never liked the ride of a "heavy duty shock". I mention this because the vendor is a truck sight.
Once had a set of aftermarket shocks named "Bruisers". I could not drive down a smooth road and sip coffee without getting some in my lap.
