I rebuilt the cab suspension yoke in an LMTV. Both bags are replaced and shocks and bushings checked. Did the cab latch seals too. You can work on each side individually in place, or try taking out the whole yoke instead of negotiating those hard-to-get-to bolts on the tops of the canisters. Lifted the whole thing out with the hoist as shown. The four bottom bolts on each side are easy to get. Unscrew the hydraulic hose on the cab latch. The air tubes have to be taken loose either way you remove a canister. There are 3 small screws with hose clamps that need to come off the yoke too..

I need to start gathering a parts list to do that (sorta).

At some point I would like to make my rigid mounted cab on the A1R into an air ride.

While climbing around on my engine I found an easier way: Borrowed the camper ladder!
Where do you find that folding staircase at? Ive seen em just never knew where to get one or how much they cost? Any ideas?

Finally replace the passenger side front windshield in my airdrop. Had it for a year almost. Was pretty easy to put in. Can't believe I waited that long for it to only take 10 minutes.

what was the clue that prompted you to remove the hub for a "check see" which lead you to discover that Hub Job.
I was checking everything before my first test drive with the truck. Drained the oil and saw that the oil was completely metallic.
