I suggest new shock fluid in all 4. That is just part of the hobby, you maintain it like an oil change for a "real" car. Read the manual for suggested weights, or maybe someone here can suggest the appropriate weight of fluid.

A short update of the situation. Seems like my shockbody is damaged aswell. The black plastic at the bottom of the the shockbody is damaged. Will I have to get a new shockbody aswell?

Looks like those shocks have a cartridge. You can order replacement cartridges and just change that part. No need to replace the whole body. The manual or the exploded view of your truck should show you this.

I looked up the thing "cartridge" in my part explosion manual and found out that I can replace that

So, to buy: LOSB2875 (Cartridge), LOSB2840 (Shock Shaft) and some Shock oil. What oil to buy? =)

Look in your manual. On the Muggy I was reading in the manual and it had some pictures on how to rebuild the shocks and they suggested 30wt Losi shock oil.

Thanks for the info and support, people

Ohh, does anybody know how many oz or ml the bodyshocks are? Will a 2 oz bodyshock oiltube be enough for all of my 4 shocks?
