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 :tup:

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
