Coilover Oil on Adjustment Knob

Default Coilover Oil on Adjustment ****

I was just adjusting my rear right JIC Cross coilover in preparation for a track day tomorrow and noticed my fingers were covered in light oil.

I pulled off the airbox and there was a thin film with a few drops of oil around the adjustment **** and nut.

The left rear and fronts were completely dry.

There were a few hoses above the right rear coilover (not sure what they are) but there were no other signs of oil anywhere so I am 98% sure the oil is from the coilover.

Is this a problem?

Leaking coilovers will directly affect handling, especially under hard cornering, as they will not travel properly. I had a similar leaking issue with my H&R Coilovers on the track and the corner workers mentioned that my front end was not planting, just seemed to 'bob' up and down. Sent mine back to H&R for rebuilding.

Pay attention to it. If handling starts to feel weird, then the shock is blown.
