Corrosion inhibitor contains alkali. Avoid contact with the eyes. Do not allow corrosion inhibitor to contact the
skin for extended periods of time. Avoid repeated contact with the skin. Do not drink corrosion inhibitor. If there is
contact, immediately wash skin with soap and water. For contact with the eyes, ush the eyes with large amounts
of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.

Pressurized Items
1. Always use a board or a piece of cardboard when you check for a leak. Leaking uid under pressure can
penetrate body tissue. Fluid penetration can cause serious injury and possible death. A pin hole leak can
cause severe injury. If uid is injected into your skin, you must get treatment immediately. Seek treatment
from a doctor that is familiar with this type of injury.

2. Relieve all pressure in air, oil, or water systems before any lines, ttings, or related items are disconnected or
removed. Always make sure that all raised components are blocked correctly. Be alert for possible pressure
when you disconnect any device from a system that utilizes pressure.

3. Fuel lines that are damaged and fuel lines that are loose can cause res. Lubrication lines that are damaged
and lubrication lines that are loose can cause res. Hydraulic lines, tubes, and hoses that are damaged can
cause res. Hydraulic lines, tubes, and hoses that are loose cause res. Do not bend or strike high-pressure
lines. Do not install lines which have been bent or damaged. Check lines, tubes, and hoses carefully. Do not
use your bare hand to check for leaks. If uids are injected into your skin, you must get treatment
immediately. Seek treatment from a doctor that is familiar with this type of injury.

4. Pressure air or water can cause personal injury. When pressure air or water is used for cleaning, wear a
protective face shield, protective clothing, and protective shoes. The maximum air pressure for cleaning
purposes must be below 205 kPa (30 psi). When you use a pressure washer, keep in mind that the nozzle
pressures are high. The nozzle pressures are frequently above 13790 kPa (2000 psi). Follow all the
recommended practices that are provided by the manufacturer of the pressure washer.

Denitions

Carry or On the Ground Pressure - The Carry Pressure is the pressure seen in the suspension cylinders when the
truck has come to a rolling gradual stop on level ground

Pre-Charge or Extended Charge Pressure - The Pre-Charge Pressure, or Extended Charge Pressure, is the
pressure in the suspension cylinders when the machine is raised off the ground and the cylinders are extended
completely.

Ride Height - The Ride Height is used as a target value for charging the suspension cylinders. The Ride Height for
each suspension cylinder is the cylinder length, and is dened by the measurement of the exposed surface area of
the cylinder rod. For the front cylinders, the Ride Height is the distance from the bottom of the cylinder housing to
the top of the wheel spindle or hub. For the rear cylinders, the Ride Height is the distance from the bottom of the
cylinder housing to the chamfer edge on the rod where the nished surface begins. Note: If the machine is
equipped with a stop collar on the wheel group, measure the exposed surface from the bottom of the
suspension housing to the top of the stop collar. If, the machine is not equipped with a stop collar then
measure the exposed surface from the bottom of the suspension housing to the top of the wheel spindle or
hub.

Rolling Stop - Position the machine on level ground. Bring the machine to a smooth gradual stop. A sudden stop
will alter the amount of exposed surface area. A sudden stop will also invalidate the information that is used to
determine if the machine needs to be serviced.

Conditions for Servicing


Service for the suspension cylinder is recommended when any of the following conditions exist:

A fault code will be displayed on the Vital Information Management System (VIMS), if the suspension
cylinder is fully collapsed.

Suspension cylinder shows signs of leakage.

The travel of the suspension cylinder rod is limited.

The weight of the truck changes more than 2268 kg (5000 lb).

The suspension cylinder pressures vary 345 kPa (50 psi) (Front) or 1035 kPa (150 psi) (Rear) more in
comparison to the other side when the truck is empty. Compare the left front to the right front and the left
rear to the right rear. Do not compare the front to the rear.

The ride height of each cylinder is not within the recommended tolerance for that machine.

Refer to the Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Maintenance Interval Schedule" to check the suspension
cylinders at the correct intervals.

Note: In the analysis of a problem in the suspension cylinders, each cylinder operates as a separate unit. However,
the condition of charge in one cylinder can impact the ride height of the other three cylinders. For example, when
the left rear cylinder is low, the right front cylinder will be high due to the shift in vehicle weight. The same
conditions exist for the right rear cylinder and the left front cylinder.

Note: Cylinders are always serviced in pairs. If one cylinder exhibits any of the aforementioned conditions, the
opposite side should be serviced along with the cylinder with the issue. For example, if the left rear suspension
cylinder exhibits an issue, the left rear and the right rear suspension cylinders should be serviced as a pair.

Machine Preparation
Before you service the suspension cylinders, the dump body must be empty. Verify that the body is clean and does
not contain any carryback material.

Ensure that the fuel tank is full of fuel.

Drive the machine for at least 20 minutes to warmup the suspension cylinders. Bring the machine to a smooth
gradual stop on level ground before measuring the ride height or servicing the suspension cylinders.

Note: If the service that is going to be performed is a collapse and recharge, it is not required to drive the machine
for 20 minutes and bring to a smooth gradual stop.

Make sure that the truck is turned off. Make sure that the wheel chocks are in place after the machine is parked.
Make sure that the battery disconnect switch is turned OFF.

Match the correct lift stand with the weight of the truck that is being serviced.

Visual Inspection
Perform a visual inspection on the suspension cylinder before you work on the suspension cylinder. Make sure that
the machine is on level ground. Do the inspection on an empty machine while the engine is stopped.

Check each suspension cylinder for oil leaks around the seals and around the valves.

Check each suspension cylinder for nitrogen leakage. A nitrogen leak is difcult to detect. A solution that consists
of soap and of water can be used to detect leaks.

Check for leakage at the O-rings that are located under the manifold and under the pressure sensor. Check for
leakage at the O-rings that are located under the protective plates that are on the head. These protective plates
cover all or some of the head bolts to prevent removal of the head while there is pressure in the suspension
cylinder.

Do not adjust, loosen, or remove the protective plates to inspect for leaks
as it will release the pressure in the strut resulting in the truck to drop
suddenly that could result in personal injury or death.

Note: Use a ladder or appropriate device to reach the appropriate height to inspect the charging valves.

Note: Friction between the rod and the lower wear band may cause a dark stain to appear on the chrome of the
suspension cylinder. This stain does not affect the wear life of the suspension cylinder. Eventually, the wear band
should become soaked by oil and grease and the blackening should decrease.

Procedure for the Rear Suspension Cylinders


Collapse the Rear Suspension Cylinders

NOTICE
To ensure that the seals on the suspension cylinders do not get
damaged, ensure that the exposed chrome is clean and free from any
damage or debris prior to collapsing the suspension cylinders.

Note: Both rear suspension cylinders must be collapsed at the same time. If only one suspension cylinder needs
servicing, perform the procedure on both suspension cylinders.

Note: The cylinders must be collapsed before the charge procedure is executed. The actual amount of oil in a

Note: Refer to the lifting instructions in the "Specications for Cables, Chains, and Lifting Devices" Section
within this special instruction.

7. Lift the truck until both of the rear suspension cylinders are fully extended and the tires off are the ground.

Allow nitrogen to enter the suspension cylinders until the target extended charge pressure is reached.

Note: The rear extended pressures are required to be equal. Refer to the target pressures that are specic to
your machine, at your site, and must be developed by you. Refer to Table 4 for a reference to the extended
charge pressures. The pressures in Table 4 are a recommended starting point.

8. After the charge is complete, close the valve on tooling (B) to stop the ow of nitrogen and allow the
pressure to equalize between suspension cylinders. Close the remaining valves on tooling (B), Tees on
chucks (2) and the swivel nuts (AD) on the charging valves.

9. Remove tool (B) from the charging valves. Install all the valve caps to the charging valves. Check for any
leaks.

10. Tighten the valve caps to a torque of 2.5 to 3.5 Nm (22 to 31 lb in).

11. Lower the truck from the stands.

12. After both the front and rear suspension cylinders are charged, drive the machine for at least 10 minutes on a
route that includes both left and right turns. Bring the machine to a gradual stop on level ground.

Note: A sudden stop will alter the amount of exposed surface area. A sudden stop will also invalidate the
information that is used to determine if the machine needs to be serviced.

13. Measure the exposed surface area and compare to the ride height listed in Table 4. If the measured exposed
surface area is out of tolerance, repeat Step 1 through Step 13 of this Section to add or remove nitrogen as
appropriate to achieve the desired ride height.

Note: Adjust the extended charge pressure in each cylinder by increments of +/- 138 kPa (20 psi) until the
desired ride height is achieved.

After achieving the desired ride height from Table 4, record the extended suspension cylinder charge
pressures.

Note: The site recorded pressures and ride heights can be used for all trucks with the same approximate
weight and the same machine conguration.

14. Use the recorded dimensions and the extended charge pressure as a reference in this Special Instruction,
"Conditions for Servicing". Use the recorded dimensions as a reference when you inspect the rear
suspension cylinders according to the Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Maintenance Interval
Schedule".

Procedure for the Front Suspension Cylinders


Collapse the Front Suspension Cylinders

NOTICE
To ensure that the seals on the suspension cylinders do not get
damaged, ensure that the exposed chrome is clean and free from any
damage or debris prior to collapsing the suspension cylinders.

Note: The cylinders must be collapsed before the charge procedure is executed. The actual amount of oil in a
cylinder cannot be determined at a given time after the machine has been in service. The suspension cylinder must
be collapsed and lled with a known amount of oil.

Note: It is recommended that both front suspension cylinders be serviced at the same time. If only one suspension
cylinder needs servicing, perform the procedure on both suspension cylinders.

Note: Any time the suspension is apart ll cavity with grease again. The OMM manual has a section stating that
every year the cylinders should be purged of the oil and nitrogen charge and recharged. Replace the grease relief
valve ttings and this time would be the optimal to ush the grease that is in the cylinder out and put new grease in
the cylinder.

NOTICE
If the technician is not performing the yearly maintenance and purging
the suspension cylinders now, the technician will need to install the oil
pump and inlet charge lines. Follow Steps 1 through 7 in Section
"Purge the Front Suspension Cylinders with Oil" before beginning the
next section "Charge the Front Suspension Cylinders with Oil"

1. Start tool (A) and pump oil into the collapsed front suspension cylinders to increase the cylinder height by
25.4 mm (1.0 inch).

2. Once the required height is reached on each suspension cylinder , close all valves on tooling (A), turn the tee
handles that are on chucks (2) counter-clockwise to close valve cores (AC) on the charging valve and close
the swivel nuts (AD) on the inlet charging valves.

3. Remove chucks (2) that were connected to the inlet charging valves.

4. Proceed to Section "Charge the Front Suspension Cylinders with Nitrogen".

1. Ensure that no oil is left in the hoses. If required, purge the charge hoses of oil.

Install one chuck (2) onto a charging valve (AA) on each of the front suspension cylinders.

Note: These valves will be the nitrogen charging valves.

2. Attach Tool (B) and the charging hoses to chucks (2).

3. Turn swivel nuts (AD) counterclockwise to open the charging valves to valve cores (AC).

4. Turn the tee handles that are on chucks (2) clockwise to open to valve cores (AC) on the charging valves.

5. To prevent a vacuum when the truck is raised later in the charging process, add approximately 1000 kPa
(150 psi) of nitrogen to the front suspension cylinders.

Note: Ensure that the valve for the nitrogen remains open and regulated to 1034 kPa (150 psi) while lifting
the truck to prevent a vacuum.

Typical example of Lift Stands (D) that are lifting a machine.

6. Place suitable lifting devices under the jacking pads at the bottom of the left and right side front suspension
castings.

Note: Refer to the lifting instructions in the "Specications for Cables, Chains, and Lifting Devices" section
within this special instruction.

7. Lift the truck until both of the front suspension cylinders are fully extended and the tires are off the ground.

Allow nitrogen to enter the suspension cylinders until the target extended charge pressure is reached.

Note: The front extended pressures are required to be equal. Refer to the target pressures that are specic to
your machine, at your site, and must be developed by you. Refer to Table 5 for a reference to the extended
charge pressures. The pressures in Table 5 are a recommended starting point.

8. After the charge is complete, close the valves on tooling (B), the tees on chucks (2) and swivel nuts (AD) on
the charging valves to stop the ow of nitrogen.

9. Remove tool (B) from the charging valves. Install the valve caps to the charging valves. Check for any leaks.

10. Tighten the valve caps to a torque of 2.5 to 3.5 Nm (22 to 31 lb in).

11. Lower the truck from the stands.

12. After both the front and rear suspension cylinders are charged, drive the machine for at least 10 minutes on a
route that includes both left and right turns. Bring the machine to a gradual stop on level ground.

Note: A sudden stop will alter the amount of exposed surface area. A sudden stop will also invalidate the
information that is used to determine if the machine needs to be serviced.

(E) Exposed surface area measurement

Note: The wheel group shown in Illustration 39 is equipped with a stop collar. If the machine is equipped
with a stop collar on the wheel group, measure the exposed surface from the bottom of the suspension
housing to the top of the stop collar. If, the machine is not equipped with a stop collar then measure the
exposed surface from the bottom of the suspension housing to the top of the wheel spindle or hub.

13. Measure the exposed surface area and compare to the ride height listed in Table 4 and Table 5. If the
measured exposed surface area is out of tolerance, repeat Step 1 through Step 14 of this Section to add or
remove nitrogen as appropriate to achieve the desired ride height.

Note: Adjust the extended charge pressure in each cylinder by increments of +/- 138 kPa (20 psi) until the
desired ride height is achieved. After achieving the desired ride height from Table 5, record the extended
suspension cylinder charge pressures.

Note: The site recorded pressures and ride heights can be used for all trucks with the same approximate
weight and the same machine conguration.

14. Use the recorded dimensions and the extended charge pressure as a reference in this Special Instruction,
"Conditions for Servicing".

Use the recorded dimensions as a reference when you inspect the front suspension cylinders according to the
Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Maintenance Interval Schedule".

15. Calibrate the payload system. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, " Payload System - Calibrate" for instructions
to calibrate the payload system.

Preventive Maintenance for the Sensor, the Charging Valve, and the
Manifold
Note: Perform the following step only after all the oil and nitrogen charge has been removed from the
suspension cylinder.

1. This check is for the 9T-2238 Valve As and the 175-3184 Valve As. Check the maintenance records for the
last known replacement date of charging valves. If, the records indicate a year or more replace the charging
valves or the valve core. When you previously examined the charging valve and the valve was leaking,
replace the charging valve or valve core. Proceed to Step 4.

2. This check is for the 238-9928 Valve As. When you previously examined the charging valve and the valve
was leaking, replace the charging valve or valve core. Go to the next step.

3. If the truck has pressure sensors, perform Step 4 through 12. If there are no sensors on the truck, go back to
the section for purging.
