Sounds to me like your pumps not working or you would hear it on all the time if the strut was leaking.
I figured that with the amount of pressure in the boot it wouldn't hold up with RTV. Have you heard of anyone trying it and actually working? I'm having the same problem with my *** draggen, although the compressor doesn't run constantly. Every once in awhile it turns on while I'm parked, I guess I can't hear it while I'm driving. I just may have to live with it although I'm starting to let to many things slide lately.

I wouldn't expect the RTV to hold at 70psi. That'* what the pump is capable of.
