Blown out shock

Hello TW

I believe I may have received a defective shock when I lifted my truck. I put new Doetshe Tech shocks in the back about a month ago. Yesterday I was under my truck and noticed oil around the top of one of the shocks. I haven't really payed attention before but this isn't normal is it?

If your leaking oil you might also have air getting into the shock which lessens shock parts life ie seals and such

It could be a warranty item. It definitely won't hurt to ask them.

That was kind of a stupid question I guess... I mean doesn't that seem kinda obvious?

Needless to say I emailed them. Has anyone else had any experience with this company? They were very helpful at least when ordering.
