Does anyone know of an easy way to reinstall 20w ATF fluid in each rear shock through the 1/4" opening? Currently I'm using an large 2oz syringe with an 1/8" needle.

Seems like I remember someone drawing it in by compressing and releasing the shock. I have only done it by popping the seal out and pouring it in from the bottom.

20 seems pretty thick. I put 15w in mine and regret it. Seems like the springs are over-damped and can quickly become over powered and bottom out. Hard.
If you're running the stock springs, I recommend stock viscosity oil.

Well, I've tried it all so I decided to replace the seal. Problem is finding the seals. Would someone post a link to the seals?

Old seals out. Tomorrow I will fill with ATF fluid, install new seals and move on to the next part of this build. Thanks for all the help.
