Steering stabilizer fluid leak

HEy guys, I was concerned about my steering stabilizer. It's an aftermarket Rancho brand; came with my 3 in RS9000 lift kit. I bought it this previous summer, so I've only had the lift for less than a year. I'm leaking something fierce out of my steering stabilizer and it increases as my wheels turn. I have an appointment to take it in to 4wheel parts on Friday, but I'd like to know possible causes of it, if possible. Thanks.

Sounds blown. The SS is very easy to remove/replace if 4w is going to charge you.

So y'all are saying I can just do it myself? Does the SS not have to be aligned or anything?

No.
You will not need any alignment after.

Very cool! Sorry I missed this. I was out of town, and I don't get alerts if someone posts in this area.
