I have the same tower as you and thought the exact same thing. I talk to the
man at Dayton this year and his question was "WHY?". I told him that the top
section was a little tippy but the overall condition of the cable was good.
I told him that I heard that the slack can be reduced by giving the big nut on
top of the tension spring above the tension pulley a few turns. He said that is
a solution as long as the cable is in good condition.
I did that and the top section lost its tippyness and the inside cable was more
taunt to my liking and I put the thought of changing the cable on the back
burner but will monitor continously.

Has anyone replaced the steel cables on a US Tower motor driven tower (eg.
HDX572MDPL)while it was in the vertical nested position (versus laying on the
ground)? If so, I would appreciate hearing from you on how you did it.
