Shock leak?

Howdy, have a 2000 here bought about a month ago. When I got it there was no air in the shocks so, I put in 20 lbs and left it. I put a couple of hundred miles on since. Just checked shock pressure again and one side was the same the other just oozed some greenish/brownish oily stuff.

Is the shock shot? I've since made sure all air is removed from both shocks.

Thanks.

I'm assuning you are takling about the rear shocks.
There was air adjust front's only in the early years.
You may have a seal going bad, not sure if these can be rebuilt.
I would look at Progressive rear, those are what I am looking at.

Lot's of choices from progressive. Just want basic, similar to stock ones. Any suggestions if that's what's needed?

Holy crap, just priced stock shock from Ron Ayers, $339 WTF? Good god! Anyone got one for sale if that's what I need?
