    Hello

    My passenger side rear shock has some oil misting on the shock, noted on last MOT so I am going to replace both rears. Does anyone know the best place to get genuine rear shocks?

    Who makes Genuine S4 shocks?

    Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks

    Why go OE, why not upgrade to Bilstein, Koni, Sachs etc?

    Thanks for the reply.

    The only reason for staying OEM was to match the fronts as I was just going to do the rears.
    Audi wanted to do just the one shock but I want to do them in pairs.

    If you have some suggestions of Bilstein etc or if anyone else does then happy to hear thoughts.

    You don't need to go to full upgrade Bilstein B6 or B8 level, B4s are still far superior to OE equipment. And not too pricey.
    Surely Audi know to replace in pairs, unless your other one was fairly new. It would be a money maker to them if nothing else.
