HEMI Shock absrobers replacement advice

After 115.000Km i believe I need to replace my HEMI's (2007) shock absorbers.

I need a model that will help my back spine with lesser vibrations as possible.
No offroad for me.

Any suggestion?

Re: Rear moaning over 55mph

I mean they may have designed the pinon in such a way it is noisy, or they may have used a poor quality alloy that gets worn and noisy after a while.

This WE I drove for 500Km, gets really...

Can someone explain where the starter is located on a WK HEMI? And how to wiggle/clean connections? Do I need to crawl underneath the car?

Is MDS drive/adaptive?

I have read that once the car's battery is disconnected, the MDS will need some time to return working properly.

Is this because the MDS adapts it's algorithms depending on the driving style?
