Front shock absorbers

My front drivers side shocker is leaking
Should I replace with the same sachs one or is there a suitable upgraded one.

Can't find to find many on the Web apart from cheap ones on eBay

My fn2 doesn't get tracked, just used on the road any help would be great guys

Just replaced mine as my drivers side one was also leaking. I got bilsteins fitted instead of Sachs. No particular reason though. Not a type R though so not sure of the differences

How do the Bilsteins compare to the Sachs stock dampers?

Feel similar to oem to me. Possibly bit stiffer but I'm no expert

Definitely replace both.

Changing one alone will highlight how bad the other is and cause other problems e.g. poor brake balance, handling, etc.
