Hello,
I posted on here recently that I installed Koni shocks on the front of our motorhome.
I didn't really think much about it at the time but I noticed a little oil run down the right shock after I installed it. I'm wondering if this is a problem? After I wiped it off I didn't notice anymore then or since but wondering if this could be a potential leaking seal or something?

Typically, oil leaking down the shock does mean a seal has gone (or is going) bad. However, could it have been some oil/grease that somehow got on the tube while driving, or perhaps during maintenance? Those are new shocks, and they 'shouldn't' do that so soon.

This brings to mind the old story about the less-than-scrupulous service-station mechanic that would get underneath and squirt some oil on the outside of a shock while filling the gas-tank. He'd then point out the problem and exclaim that it could fail catastrophically at any moment. Coincidently, he'd be having a "Sale" on shocks that day.

Hope yours isn't like that.
