Do you know what the reasoning behind the replacement was? Was it a warranty repair?

The car had been leased and covered by the warranty
Inner city Dallas- but I don't know reason
Expert:  scionking replied 1 year ago.

I would suspect maybe a small amount of seepage was found on them, probably from city type driving. Its actually pretty common for these to seep a little. I wouldn't base your buying decision on the fact that they were replaced previously. I would however recommend having the alignment checked and have the struts reinspected before you purchase it.

Thank you. I feel more confident now.

Are the shocks more bouncy when they are new?
Does extra air in the tires preparing for cold weather make it bouncy?
Expert:  scionking replied 1 year ago.

Shocks/struts should remain the same as when new there is no break in period. Extra air will make for a harsher ride(basket ball bounce type feeling), always set the tire pressures to the amount listed on the door frame
