Struts and shocks

I have an 07 G6 GTP Sedan which i'm gonna be replacing the struts and shocks for. I'm not interested in lowering it at all. From what I can tell all G6 models use the same struts and shocks. Is there any quality difference between KYB, Monroe or Gabriel? Any ride better then the others? Lifetime issues?

Also I can't seem to find the rear shock mounts anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

So the rear shock itself is attached to the upper mount, and the mount alone is attached to the frame? Is that correct? The shock only attaches to the mount?

Yes, the rear shocks are attached to the body of the car, not within the coil spring. I saw the setup for the first time the other day when I did a check on the rear brakes.
