I'm still running stock shocks, but the plan is to get Ohlins when the 
wallet permits. At your mileage, if you replace your current shocks with 
stock parts you will feel a significant improvement. My understanding of 
Ohlins is that they work extremely well, but they are very pricey. Budget 
around CAD$2.2K for a front and rear mono-shock (I don't know what you 
ride). I also understand that Works and Fox shocks are very good, and 
considerably less coin. I have not done any research outside of Ohlins. 
Good luck.
