Eibach Pro Damper Leak Help?

Hey guys,
I took my left-front tire off last weekend to get into the engine bay to replace my leaking clutch peddle. Needless to say i noticed some oil on the shaft for my Eibach strut. I took a look at the right-front and it was the same way. I then inspected the rears and the right-rear shock has black wet looking dirt around it (like oily kitty litter. The left-rear looked fine. The ride quality is decent though i swear I've been noticing a slit worsening of the handling on bumps. I have on the vehicle Steeda springs which to my knowledge are re-badged eibach pro springs to go with the eibach dampers.

Has anybody else had problems with leaking dampers? I'm sort of annoyed to because i cannot find the receipt when i purchased them and I don't think they will warranty them without that. If anybody has any experience with eibach shocks going bad or warranty service please let me know.

Some leakage is not uncommon. Even the best companies will tell you this. It's pretty much impossible to completely seal a shock/strut piston shaft. If its visibly running down the entire side of the housing/tube you may indeed have a problem. Only real way to tell is to remove the shock and see what kind of resistance (both compression and rebound) the shaft still has.
