Does anybody else's Bilsteins look like this?
I got about 8k from my 5100's before the drivers side spewed all over the place. No more Billies for me.

Over 30k on mine before they puked. I was amazed they lasted so long especially sinse they were my limit straps (ordered them to short).

Leaky in BC

Just bought/had installed 4 Bilstein 5100's less than 3 weeks ago so likely less than 500km. Also new coils all around - 2" lift. This morning there was a 10" oil spot on the driveway under the right front shock, and oil all over the bottom half (everything below the boot). No offroad (yet), no hard bumps, only good pavement.
Will be calling the supplier when they open later today. Sure hope they warranty it.

Dayum, had set on 05 AC and put over 40k on them with no issues, were still dry when truck traded in for 08 RC in 2011. Have another set of same ones bought new on the 08 with about 20k or so on them and all are dry (knocks on wood). Not sure how anyone can claim that much oil loss would be a normal thing and keep a straight face. Leaking shocks are doomed shocks. Some dry accumulation might be expected over the course of 50k+ but wet shit like in the pics I just can't accept as "normal". Kinda like Toyota saying some of the obvious problems with driveline vibes and such are normal. NOT..........

Annoying: pushing the understatement category. And sorry for the bad information, wasn't 10". I just went outside and measured... over 13" circle of oil + a bunch of 1" - 2"ers as I parked throughout the day.
Called the supplier this morning and ordered/paid for a new shock. I'll have to ship back the leaker before they can make a warranty determination. Awww, nuts.

An update

Just an update to my earlier post. I've just heard from my Bilstein shocks supplier that my leaky shock has been approved for warranty and I will be reimbursed. No other problems with the shocks. They ride smooth and I can't wait to abuse them.

Update on mine: I've now had two of these things warrantied through Toytec. I personally won't ever buy 5100s again. It's just a hassle to go through the warranty process and pay the $30 whatever dollars in shipping fees.

I had mine on for about 25k miles and the rear passenger 5100 blew crap everywhere. No hard wheeling ever, only took them offroad twice. I was going to try to get warranty replacement but the lower shock bolt was seized in and I had to cut the shock off. Figured it wasn't worth my time to try to get a new one after that.
