So I replaced my springs with H&R springs, now my rear shocks are leaking and needed to be replaced. Anyone had the same issue and what shocks can I replace it with that's recommended with H&R springs?

I dont think I have seen anyone replace their shocks with anything aftermarket when using H&R springs. Not sure how many, if any, shock options exist. H&R springs are much too low IMO which is likely why your factory shocks failed. Personally, I would use this opportunity to replace with coilovers so you can lower your 718 to your linking and have matched shocks and springs.

I am thinking of replacing my suspensions with Bilstein B16 Damptronic when the time comes since it retains the PASM function with the coilover function of lowering up to -30mm (I think)
