Hello,
If the cylinder drifted down on is own, you should not have pressure in the lines. Just be careful as you could still have some pressure in the lines. Open the tank cap to release pressure in the tank. Remove the lines and plug the hoses and cap the fittings to prevent dirt entry into the hydraulic system. The pins will likely be seized and you may need to heat or cut the pins out. Expect to replace both pins and bearings in the cylinder and rod.
