    my seals are leaking on both of my lift cylinders. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience changing the seals and if so how much does it cost. I beleive I lifted too much weight and it caused the seals to start leaking. Cylinders are in excellent shape so I know that didnt cause it.

    Thanks

    rebuilding cyclinders isnt bad. as long as you can get the jam nut loose. good set of pics and lots of brake cleaner. should take bout an hour per cylclinder thats if you dont have issues with the jam nuts. check your manf. specs. to make sure you get them tq'd back to speck. other wise you could risk the chance of a blow out.
