Leaky Model A shocks

No quick fix.

First determine if they are original Fords. They should have the adjuster in the top of the center shaft.

Next, are the shafts loose, will they move up and down? Loose shafts are much more complicated to fix involving machine work.

Some of the seals that have been made for the center shaft are not very good. There is a somewhat pricey rebuild kit that has good seals. Of course you will have to get the covers off and that is not always trivial.

I suggest going to the A board on Fordbarn.com and search the archives and do not be afraid to ask questions there.
