Yes, they do have vertical lines in them. I wish the last shop told me that. They just shrugged it off and gave me some money back.

So an update. Closer inspection shows that it is NOT leaking from the seals but it is leaking from the Endcaps where the axle and caliper mounts go. There also seems to be some play in it when you rock the bike back and forth with brake engaged. Additionally I am able to rotate the fork left and right as if I am it in.

This is an entirely different from fork seals right?? What causes this? Patrick and others. I thankyou for all your input that I have seen through the forum

Possibly the allen bolt holding the cartridge in is not tight, or the sealing washer is worn / not there.
Can you bring it by?
