I would think you must have a leak somewhere above the control arms.

funny you say that--
Ive had someone on the forums say-- these are all rubber... most likely oil leaking from up top.
But- there is no oil leaking from anywhere...
Ive had 2 do it.
And Ive seen a similar post on an Outlook... same question. I said- replace the bushing.
Once replaced-- no more leaks.


Same with mine... replaced the part- no more fluid.


so theyre fluid filled to a point.



they leave a brownish stain... just like the front motor mount on my traverse.














see-- no oily stuff leaking and landing on top..







top and bottom view..






the motor mounts also leak a fluid... brownish once dry
