Anybody ever heard of front shocks leaking fluid.....

Hey guys, this might be a silly question but I noticed a clear oily substance that looks to be coming from one of my front shocks? Anybody have any suggestions? 95 425 magnum 2x4

Yeah or new shocks?
Depends where it is leaking I guess
If there is a deep gouge or scratch out of the cylinder on the shock it will not seal and cause a leak
