    Hi guys i bought the xls 8-10 back in Oct 2008 put it on a 2008 f350 6.4, my problem is it's leaking from the top of the lift ram. I taken it back 2 times, The first time he said he tighten the nut, the second time he said he replaced the seals in the lift ram, But again it's still leaking, What do i do, he is the dealer and should know how to fix these things, go back again or call fisher

    What would tightening the nut do on a low friction cylinder? It can't go tighter and do anything as there is no chevron style packing to compress. I would say take it back and have them look at it again. Check for scoring and to make sure the "passage" in the guide ring on the end of the rod is open.
