If the rack hasn't been rebuilt before, it's time to do it now. And you DO
want to do it because as the seals deteriorate, eventually you'll get to the
point where the piston is rubbing against the cylinder and tears it up, and
then you're in for replacement instead of just rebuilding.

Getting the thing out and back in is hard, changing the seals on the bench
is pretty easy. If you don't have a lift, take it to someone who does.
