Yes it was on both. The problem is that the top of the boot has a cup and vent holes which turn into drain holes and a little dirt plugs up the bottom and traps the water and that leads to destruction of the shock tower. Like I said, terrible design.That rear shock has the boot on the way it should be.
With all the dirt and mud on that shock I would say that something likely tore the boot loose or tore a hole into the boot. This is a maintenance part and will not last the life of the van.What a terrible design on the shock boot. The water sits on the top cup and leaks down into the boot and rots out the steel because the drainage holes are too small View attachment 32129 . This van is only 35 months old. Dealer missed this several times over the last 2 months and I caught it because of the rattle.
