    Capri struts - Oil question....

    Hi, I ripped down a pair of Capri struts (MK II 2.0) ready for a 2-1/4" coil over conversion. During this process emptied the oil as I removed the inserts.

    When I come to assemble, what oil must I use and how much in each strut?

    Advance thanks

    Sounds like you have the original wet shock still fitted, used to bin them, and fit new inserts, Koni make top adjustable inserts for the Mk1/2 escort, which are the same legs as the capri, except for the Billstiens, which yours should not be.
    if you want to fill them again, you probably need to go to a Bike shop for Fork oil

    some good info here

    millers are top quality oils. Autocare car shops stock some miller products so should be able to get the shock oil.
