Default My OEM shocks are leaking, need recommendations for replacement

Hi, my rear and front shocks need replacement, they have lasted until 107K miles which is what I have now. It is a 2007 IS 350.

I want to keep my stock suspension, I love the ride quality for the past 4 years and don't want to change it or lower it. What are my options? I have been doing some searching and this is what I have come to so far:

- Replace with OEM shocks, http://is.sewellparts.com/accessorie...2007/6894.html
Price: $712 for the rear (2x) and then the front left and front right.
- Replace with F-sport shocks: http://is.sewellparts.com/accessorie...2007/1801.html
Price: $627, Q:- will this combined with Stock Springs be okay and comfortable?
- Replace with KYB


Price: $424, Q: Are these reputable, how are they compared to OEM. Quality?

Please let me know your thoughts and any other options I have not considered.

Thanks!

There are quite a few options with replacing the factory shocks :

*OEM replacements
*Bilstein
*KYB
*Tokico
*Koni
*Off-brand

Each have their own advantage.

Yes I have listed the first 3 in my OP, but I want to see your guys thoughts and experiences on them, and I am not sure where to purchase tokico and koni.

I want the best bang for your back OEM replacement.

Plan to keep it stock as stated, I cannot give up ride quality or stock height as it is my Daily Driver. I am getting an NSX soon as my toy which I have my fun with!

Tokico High Performance shocks $550 shipped. I just ask from a vendor. Our stock are made by Tokico.

Also, you can ask in the classified section for OEM shocks. There are plenty of the ones who are on coils will have the OEM suspension and they will sell it for like $100-200 range. Make sure you ask how many miles they have first. I sold mine for like $100.

In your shoes I would get Tokico HTS as they have adjustable damper.

if you want to keep the smooth lexus ride, then your only option would be OEM shocks. nothing aftermarket is as good in terms of comfort. sewell doesn't have the best prices. google lexus oem parts, I am sure you can find them for less that what sewell charges.
