Happy Thanksgiving, Folks! Appreciate your thoughts on this situation. I'd been noticing infrequent leaks - looks like oil but doesn't seem as thick or viscous, from the rear suspension area of the driver's side. I checked the oil levels on both the dash indicator (varies between at the MAX level to mid-way between MAX and MIN levels) and the dipstick which is higher than mid-way. I'm not so sure if this is really oil but is brownish and smells like a mixture of dirt and water. I peeked under the car and have attached photos of the leaky area and it's cleaner sibling on the opposite end on the passenger's side rear suspension. 1) What is this part that is leaking? Is that really oil? 2) Can this leak be plugged or should the part be replaced? 3) If it is the struts, time to swap the rears out too? I'm looking at the fronts soon, so wondering if it is time to replace all 4? Here is the leaky part - on the rear of the driver's side. Here is the clean part on the rear end of passenger's side Thank you for your valuable time here during the holidays. Cheers, Vish
