If it's leaking, it's blown. The ride will progressively get worse.

how do you install them? Did you use channel locks on the stru or something like that? Just curious, because I just installed goldlines last week also

Well if the ride getting bouncy isn't the ride getting worse, I don't know what you would call it. You should think before you type. Nothing intellegent to add, I guess you just needed to say something.

blown struts = strut wear on tires, they will start to chop and make lots of noise etc. and yeah, everything is worse in a car w/ blown struts, ride, braking, traction, etc.

Yes, that strut is blown. The others are probably pretty close to it. Your car will begin to handle more and more unpredictably as the struts are no longer able to effectively control the springs, you'll get uneven wear on your tires, and cornering at high speeds will be "exciting."

Either replace em, or get coilovers.
