SW Colorado Mechanic Help Needed ASAP!!

We're on vacation from Oklahoma and currently in Durango. Planning to head up to Silverton and Ouray tomorrow morning to stay at a cabin for a few nights and run some trails. So while the family is playing around the hotel this evening I decide to go check the jeep (13' JKU) one last time before we hit the trails in the morning and discover the passenger side rear shock (Bilstein 5100) has some oil residue at the bottom. Also seems the jeep is leaning slightly to the passenger side, especially at the rear. May not be a huge deal but not want this flatlander wants to see before I tackle the trails tomorrow I'd like to get a shop to look at it before I head up to Silverton and prefer not Midas or some place like that so does anyone local to this area know of a reputable place I can take it to? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Good luck. But I'm sure a leaking shock won't affect ur trip to bad. I've driven over a hundred miles with no shocks. Not recommended btw

My l/r 5100 bilstien developed a leak awhile back and there have been no issues yet. Still running it and been offroad several times. You should be fine.
