So I was driving down from my friends house, and then suddenly I hear slight knocking coming from my rear left wheel while goving over minor bumps in the road. I get out to see that there is fluid all over the inside of my wheel and brownish fluid coming out from the bilstein shock area. Has anyone had this happen to them?
I drove the car home, the knocking only got worse, Im not quite sure if its the shock, but I dont think it could be anything else other than the shock absorber..

I had my bilstein sport crap out on me. you'll hear a big clunking and that corner of the car will bump out of control. scary at speed.
