Hi just wanted to see if anyone had this issue. I have 45K miles, seems kind of low for the shocks to go.
Also, any suggestions on OEM vs after market shocks.

are you on stock springs? That definitely seems low mileage for that type of major malfunction. If you have warranty, go OEM, but I would recommend some H&R Street Coilovers if not.

yes the are stock. does not seem like it should wear that quickly asking dealer to check for a defect which would be covered under warranty

Yes that should definitely be covered for an OEM replacement, sorry to hear about that, leaking hydraulic fluid can be quite a mess!
