hydraulic cylinder

We got a 1968 f600 a few weeks ago and i'm planing on putting a grain bed on it. but what worries me is it has twin cylinders on it there the ones that collapses in side each other. and when you lift the bed up they don't come up exactly even. if that makes any sense. and i'm worried if i put 400 bushel of grain in it it will put something on a bind. how do i fix that or do i need to tear them apart and replace seals?

so it already has twin "telescoping" cylinders? If one is not up to par with the other I would think it is bleeding by or loosing pressure somewhere in the line cause the mis match. Might just need a simple rebuild, but I'm no hydraulic expert...

Explain in more detail what you mean by not coming up evenly? You mean that the bed gets twisted? Or you mean that the stages come up different? JJ
