Leaky Shock

Got the oil changed at my local tire shop (they do more than tires obviously...great guys...total cost of oil/filter change and tire rotation for $115...and that's with the Pennzoil Euro-L).

Put the truck on the lift and while doing the tire rotation, found the right rear shock is leaking....the tech said it was time to replace the shock. Shop manager looked too and confirmed.

Truck has 25k miles on it and the shock needs replacement...WTF? Anyone else see this problem too?

Had almost the same problem, but my drivers side front strut was leaking oil at the top. Took the vehicle back to my dealer and they replaced both front struts under warranty. Dealer was required to replace both instead of just the leaky one. I'd get it in to the dealer while you still have warranty left. I had 17,500 miles on my 2014.

Dropped it off this morning at the dealer. Will see what action is taken.

Got it back. Replaced the right rear shock due to leaks. Tech also found left front strut leaking too...replaced that as well.

Bigger question is why a vehicle with only 25k on the odometer requires a strut and a shock replacement so soon??

Because not everyone vehicle that leaves the production line is going to be perfect and flawless? Which is why they have warranties on them?

That is strange. My Jeep dealership said "Jeep required the dealerships to replace both front struts together as a pair" funny how requirements are different from dealership to dealership.
