    I don't know, I might be wrong but they look really greasy/oily. If they are leaking, it would be the seal where the shaft goes into the shock body, I think.

    (I know, thats what she said)

    yep, looks like a Pro Comp drop bracket lift...

    the coilovers are ok... you might want to get them recharged or even rebuilt... assuming they can be rebuilt...

    I would take an air compressor to them for now until you get them recharged. They will start leaking internally and externally if you drive to long with out having some air in them.
