Check and see if there is an oil stain on them. Bounce the front end and see if it continues bouncing.

Rough ride in the front end. Seems to bottom out in the front end on light bumps. Oil stains around seals on struts.

Re: 1999 Saleen shocks!!

stiff ride due to the shock not compressing like it used to~ or they may be VERY soft and you can push by hand (DONT PUSH on the front fender open the hood and push on the strut tower)
