Why do shock absorbers leak?

Shock absorbers can leak due to a variety of factors, such as worn seals, damage to the piston or cylinder, or corrosion from exposure to moisture and road salt. Over time, the constant movement and vibration of the shock absorber can cause the seals to wear down, allowing hydraulic fluid to leak out. Additionally, harsh driving conditions, such as driving on rough or uneven terrain, can cause damage to the piston or cylinder, which can lead to leaks. Exposure to moisture and road salt can also cause corrosion on the shock absorber, which can weaken the seals and cause leaks to occur.
