Thanks Woody.

Have you ever replaced the cells? I've been told that they are the most common thing to go and that they last on the average about 5 years. Supposedly the spheres lose their nitrogen and are replaced by the hydraulic fluid and since there is no longer any gas to compress all the suspension has is hydraulic fluid and since fluid doesnt compress.....hence the stiff ride.

How much are spheres? Easy to replace?
