Leaks on the shock absorber
Leaks on the shock absorber
Minor oil leakage (sweating) on the piston rod seal does not entail the replacement of the shock absorber.
   
If an oil leak is visible (but blunt, dull, possibly dried by dust) and does not propagate any further than from the top shock-absorber plug (piston rod seal) to the bottom spring cap -arrow-, the shock absorber is deemed to be O.K.
  Note
A slight oil leak is beneficial as the gasket is lubricated and this increases the life time. This also applies for the shock absorbers on the front and rear axle.
