    All, I just found a small oil puddle under the rear left driver side wheel. Looking under the car I can clearly see the the rear left suspension is wet and that the drip point is just at the suspension shock absorber lower bolt.

    Any idea what it is? Bremerhaven Sept 28, Vessel: Probably a ruptured shock. Shock absorbers are filled with oil, if the oil leaks out, you need to replace the shock. Another less likely possibility is a differential leak. What rocketSurgeon said is correct. A shock, or the diff are the suspects in that order. Follow to oil, it'll lead you to the culprit. I'd say the shock absorber as well if the location is precise to what you describe.

    You can take a look through the wheel well and look at the top boot of the absorber and visually see if there fluid coming out of it or touch it for an oily feel. Or you can touch the bottom of the control arm near the wheel where the bottom shock bolt is located and touch for an oily feel. Since the shock absorber can leak through the boot, or completely broken internally and shoot fluid when compressed causing fluid to run down the shock into the lower rubber shock mount and through the bolt in the control arm.

    If you got a jack and jackstands, you can do it yourself for a lot cheaper. The parts are cheap but the labour will cost you an arm and leg. As well goals for suspension is a key question as well. Would be a good time to do upgrades if you want to improve your car.

    So that plays a factor in price as well. I echo the comment to get a quote from a local independent shop. The dealer markup on the shocks will be quite high. You could easily same some money by having an independent shop do the work, even if you ask them to install BMW OEM shocks.

    Bilstein or Sachs are both good quality equivalents to the OEM shocks. BB code is On. All times are GMT The time now is E90 xi Join Date: Appreciate 0 Tweet Quote.
