Is this a Leaky Bilstein or am I making something out of nothing

I had one of those suspension squeaks on my car; put the car on a ramp to get underneath and hit all rubbers with WD and I saw this.




The driver's side looks as dry as the Sahara. Does this mean I need to replace with new Bilsteins (and most likely more)?

The gasket on the top of the CV joint (or whatever it is called on the Porsche) was what was squeaking, since it's part of the strut, is it all related?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

take off your shock and take it apart and look inside. this is easy to do.

Could be the shock, but it could also be oil leaking from the oil cooler lines (could also be brake fluid, but I think you'd know when you tried to stop...).
