What type of cylinders?? You probably overlocked them..

Overlocking = When you raise the front/back to the cylinders full extension yet you still keep tapping the switch

did you clean out the tanks and flush out all the hoses ? you could have debris in the newer cylinders causing them to leak prematurely

just an idea to let you know what you might find when you rebuild them , and how to ensure they last longer next time .
