Thanks for the links Drumhead, I ended up ordering a rebuilt cylinder from Advance Auto Parts but it won’t be in for another 3-4 days. In the meantime I figured I would look at the leaky axle. I found some crud on the tulip that might have been causing there to be not the best seal but I find it difficult to think that was the cause of the problem. As best as I can tell the seal looks to be in good condition. What are your guy’s thoughts?
