    Sorry but I have a stupid question .

    My 2019 has only 250 miles so far. On the passenger rear shock, I saw some “looks like oil”residue on the connecting part of the shock in the pic below. I just wipe it off so it doesn’t show on the pic anymore, but you can still see the little dirty on it

    is it a leak? Or too early to tell? Anyone has similar issue?

    Get a handful of flower and toss it on - the flower will stick to anything wet/leaked


    ... or I could just be trying to get you to flower your shocks

    Zooming in I can’t see shit that looks like a leak.

    I know because my dumb ass wiped it earlier before I took the pic :/

    anyways this is the area I see the residue and I circled it in the pic below . Maybe I’m being paranoid?

    If you actually drive your truck and you’ll notice your gas tank gets emptier too. It’s weird, anyone else experience the same thing?

    Just ****ing with you. But seriously, drive your truck.

    LOL, I know, I'm just being paranoid I guess. But I will run maybe a week or 2 and take pic and show you guys again and see what you think :)

    So, I bring back the dead thread. This is what I'm seeing on my rear passenger shock. After about 1200 miles trip to the mountain and back and see some snow.

    Can someone let me know if the shocks are leaking or what is leaking from that spot there (the valve)? I don't even know what's called LOL.

    I already schedule to bring the car to dealer in next few days. Just hoping someone can fill me in some info before the dealer BS me .

    Thanks
