Front every 80k miles need replacing. Rears last longer usually 200k miles or more!papajoe45140 said:Got under vehicle today and found the front shocks had an oil film on them and one of the rears had alot of dirt, dust built up on it.

GM considers some seepage as normal. That's why if your vehicle is under warranty for example and you show them the seepage, they will not replace it. Now if it's obviously leaking oil, dripping all the way down the whole shock then it's not good anymore. The 80k miles may or may not be your magic number but that is the maximum these MRC will last. You may have less.papajoe45140 said:So your saying dont expect anything to be wrong regardless how old they are. 80,000 miles is the magic number and the oil film doesnt mean anything.
