    Found oil under truck in driveway under drivers side. Thought my power steering rack took a dump since it is part of the recall. Turns out my shock took a dump. Parts ordered and I get to spent more time at the dealership next week.

    Too many, but not enough....
    Did you have a heavy bottom out or anything? Seems pretty rare that a bilstein shock would take a dump like that so early in its life.

    Very little so far
    Is it really cold where you live? Had a bilstein blow oil years back in the winter during a particularly cold spell. Hadn't heard any others having that issue, but was told at the time that it was not all that uncommon.

    Sorry that happened to you, but I guess I'd be thankful that it was an easily replaceable part, and not something more troubling.
