Had my car on a lift today and noticed oily moisture around the upper covers on the rear MRC shocks. If they are leaking, is this way it looks like? Damp, not splashed or running. or is this just the lube for the shock as it appears normally? 72,500 miles.

Yup

Pics would help but sounds like it.

OK, the chart is for a type with a spring seat. The MRC is different. Do you have a chart for it?

Actally the oil dampness is on the upper cover to the tube. There is some below it also. Sorry that I have no pictures.

The fronts are dry, dirty, but dry.
