Get it fix now. This summer you will not have time to fix any minor problem. You'll be driving it to much then. I have a red poster for your SSR. If you ever get to Owensboro KY give me a call. I'll bring it to you.

Exclamation

Could be a cause for real concern and first thing to do is determine WHERE the leak is coming from.
What year is your R and how many miles? At what spot did you notice the leak--at the front or rear of the truck?

Answers to these ?s give you a reference place to start.
==================
Let us know...

to darn big to mail. If you ever come this way let me know. The price is free. Just pick it up. Murry isn't that far from Henderson or Owensboro Ky. One day this summer you'll be out driving that great SSR. Just drive this way.

One or two drops a day or a week or since you got it...

If you just got the R and the oil was recently changed, it could be from splash or pooling, it can be cleaned away or it will take some time before it goes away on it's own.

It may be as simple as cleaning the area to see where it comes from afterwards. If that doesn't work out, typical auto part stores carry a oil dye additive that is visible using a black light.
If you are getting a few drops a day, it should be quite easy to find.

If you are not inclined to do this yourself, get it into your trusted shop so you can get it off you mind and enjoy the ride. If it is an actual leak from the front, is will likely be a seal and I am not sure how mechanical you are or care to be.
