Exclamation Turbo o-rings leaks

Do turbo pedestal leaks tend to get worst over time? I have a leak towards the rear of the motor (valley by HPOP is dry) which drips down the bellhousing, then over to the oil pan. The leak seems to be small one though (no pooling of oil on the ground). I was just wondering if it's necessary to change them out ASAP.

It's a pain trying to figure out where the leak is coming from back there unless you start pulling hard parts.

I'd be interested in what you find...I'm getting the same thing....leak down below (mine does drop 'some' on the driveway, but not BAD), no valley puddles. If I can get some time & it will quit raining long enough, I need to crawl up under the hood look too.

You and I have the same truck, except for the color.

Did you change out all 4? 2 below the pedestal and 2 beneath the turbo?
