Shock Absorbers

Hi Guys,

I've noticed small leaks on my shock absorbers(all 4) & I'm looking some advice on what brand to go for when buying new.

I believe Sachs are the OEM, so I was initially going to go for these; however when chatting to a customer adviser on autodoc, they suggested RIDEX. They seems suspiciously cheap in comparison to even the SACHs, so I guess my questions is - has anyone any experience using this brand/these absorbers? They come with a 2yr warranty, but not sure it's worth that if they are known to fail!

I had a rear shock replaced under warranty on my FN2 it has the Honda logo on it but also Sachs in big letters so yes they are OEM.
