Hello!

I have an 08 Palomino Bronco with a spring lift system. It's become VERY loud and i am unable to smoothly get it to come down after cranking up. I believe its from driving in salty roads.

Any idea how to lubricate this? it says to pour oil down the spring openings in the manual, but i doubt that will make it to the crank case.

Here are three photos. Any ideas?

I believe you'll have to set it off and take the cover off the center mechanism and lube that with spray lube. Glad I have the newer style electric lift. It's all inside the camper.
