Really - how bad is the leak? There could be a little sliver of something caught on the lip of the seal, causing a leak, or the shock shaft could have a nick on it, and using a piece of fine emery cloth, you could smooth the nick down, and the oil seal might not have any issues anymore....I'd pull the shock for an examination. Or, you could just tell whomever is buying it, that it has a slight leak on the shock.....and be done with it.
Also, by the time you tear the shock out, send it off to get repaired, and get it back, you'd probably be dangerously close dollar-wise to the price of a new aftermarket one - progressive suspension's 465 shock can be had online for about $380 usd.
"Side effects may include: Mild kidney explosions...Testicular cranberrying... And Rectal hallucinations.
