Blown Shocks? Take a peek..

Anybody have any ideas if this indicates a bad shock? The seepage is on both fronts..

hard to say since it doesnt look "wet" to me. Couldve been something you drove through...but if its on both quick shocks...it could be? Have your dealer take a look

FYI-I had a expert tell me one time that when shocks/striuts are new they may release a tad bit of oil. This may be the case here?

Thanks for the responses. I am not sure myself as it could go either way. Both chsocks do have the same stain. The suspension is fekked up anyway and if you read mu thread I am keeping of the list of problems the symtons do point to bad shocks. http://www.jeepgarage.org/f107/jrnycs-list-of-overland-summit-issues-44301.html Dont know if this condition proves it or not of course but I did see another post here this week with similair pics but no oil seepage, Cant find the dam post though and Ive searched quite intemsively.

i have seen blown shocks and there is LOTS more oil...it just pours out and coats everyhting. Theer would be 0 travel etc.

Blown fronts tend to look like this.
