I have a 2009 Chevy Tahoe with clunking concern. A tech at a shop examined and concluded the front shocks are going bad with leaking on the front shocks, and recommended to replace them. He said they are...

shock absorbers are an integral part of the safe driveability of the vehicle
shock absorbers with oil leaks are failed and should be replaced asap
suggest that you get firm with the dealer and demand that they be replaced if you have an extended warranty that covers the items
read the warranty as many extended warranties only cover engine and drive train and not what you have been lead to believe
which ever what happens the units need to be replaced
it is a strut type suspension it will also affect tyre wear

Rear shocks (van 150000 miles) originals still on Recently installed 2.2 Legacy Engine people sugges KYB gas shocks I have Biltiens *new) on front

Bilsteins are about the best shocks you can buy.

With those miles (150000) on the van I would have also replaced all 4 springs and all 4 shocks., It is stupid to put new shocks on the front and leave worn out shocks on the rear . - The rear shock absorbers should also be replaced with new items.
(Springs are inexpensive to replace so I am surprised you did not renew them because it should be done. The old ones will have sagged significantly by now.)

I have a 2004 Jetta with 90,000+ miles on it. I have been told I need new shocks and struts by my mechanic. How do I know for sure that I need one or both without getting a second opinion? Is...

90,000 miles is not an uncommon mileage to replace the struts and shocks. If the shocks are leaking oil, or the car doesn't ride well, that is a good sign of needing replaced. You can also push down on the front or rearend, if it bounces up and down more than once, that would be another sign that it's time to replace them.

The shocks and struts should be replaced every 80,000 miles unless there are sign's of fluid leaks. Monroe shocks and struts are one of the more popular Brand names out there. Good luck and shop around and remember, you get what you pay for so spending a few more dollars is worth 80,000 miles of use.

When to replace struds

monroe shock and strut recommends 50k miles for shocks, 80k miles for struts. but they sell struts. if they are visibly leaking, with an oily film building around top of strut, replace them. if the tires are cupping in the center of the tread, replace them. if the car seems to have a bouncy ride and take a while to settle out after a large bump, or if you push down on each corner of the car above the wheel and it bounces easily, they probably need replacing

Rear end sways real bad in the rain

Shocks, they only have a life of around 80,000 miles and the bushings on the shocks could also be worn if they don't have that much miles on them. Most places have life time replacement warranty as long as you keep the receipt, so every 80,000 miles you just have to pay for the labor unless you do the job your self. Good luck and hope this helps. remember you get what you pay for so don't buy the cheap shocks since there life time yuo'll really only have to pay for them once.

Suspension system 2003 X Type

That all depends on if you have the comfort or the sport suspension. The sport is a bit stiffer, and the comfort is pretty floaty. Now, repair shops will tell you that you need to replace the shocks every 50,000 miles, however they should be good for at least 100,000 miles. But, how to tell. There are 3 items to check- how much "dive" does your front end have when you brake? If it is significant, then you might be due. The opposite is true when accelerating off the line. Finally, push down on the front and back end with your hands, and if it bounces straight up, then you should still be good on your shocks.

If you have rattles from the shocks, either the mounts or the shocks themselves might be bad. You want to replace the shocks in either case.

Note, that replacing the shocks on the X Type is extremely expensive.
