That is normal for those gas shocks, nothing to worry about.

When you stop hearing it then worry cause most likely your shocks may need changing.

^ New shocks busted already?

Accustom hearing the 'psshhh' sound going over humps etc in my vehicles and others with teh gas shocks.

I see you said the dust cover is busted, is your vehicle lowered?
Stock height those dust covers don't normally get damaged easily.
If lowered your struts may have been bottoming out causing it to leak.

not lowered. Stock height. Now the thing is I alone don't drive my car my mother also drive it sometimes. Also i may need to take in that i drove my car on pure springs for about 2 yrs. When i got the car all 4 shocks was dead and due to the fact the car i sold to get this one i just change all 4 shocks on that. I found it have to spend a next 2 grand so quickly So maybe i need a change of springs also.
