Be SURE to get the newer HIGHLY re-enforced ones. Equalizer "comped" mine, since the coach was only a year old. They KNOW they have a problem with the originals; they were too flimsy.
If they won't comp them, they are about $35 per plate. Replace them all.
My tech took over 2 hours, several broken tools, and a blowtorch to get one of mine off. They are locktighted on and it's almost impossible to grip the piston to keep from turning.
