For what it is worth, before you send the jack off to HWH, pay their $200.00+ fee and then shipping both ways, check to see if there is a hydraulic re-builder in your area. I recently had one rebuilt locally and it was $100.00 total. Just needed new seals.
thanks to you both. the actuator seals is what leaking on mine. plus the hex nut at the top which has 2 o rings is broken off so there is no way to operate the jack. it is in stored position. I have read about putting wedges in the springs but the jack has to be able to extend and retract to use that method.

I changed springs on the left rear jack. I just stuck a large screwdriver under the spring at the top mounting hole and lifted the spring right out of the hole by pushing up on the screwdriver. Actually was quite easy. Put the new ones back on the same way.
