shock leak ?

Rhino's been sitting in the garage for the last couple of weeks...... unridden.

Then I notice a very small amount of fluid under the right rear CV. It's been over 115* for awhile and even hotter in my garage.....

After further inspection, I noticed it coming from my shock? WTF I haven't even been riding this thing. I've got the piggy res shocks and don't know if the heat is messing with them or what???? I don't know shit about shocks so was hoping somebody could tell me it's no big deal, not to worry about it. Or, go sell your left testicle, you're gonna need to get a new set of WERS or Elks.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like you need to send your shock in for a new seal. It wont cost very much and you dont need new shocks.
