    Rear shock replacement S5

    I have a 2013 S5 with Drive Select. I've been advised the rear shocks are leaking and was quoted $880 for the pair. Seems high to me but I've never replaced shocks on an Audi.

    If I'm going to spend money anyway, what options would you guys recommend instead of OEM replacements?

    Ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    how many miles on the car?

    if more than 20k, i recommend replacing both front & rear to maintain balanced handling & stability.
