Please help me out. I am having trouble figuring out exactly what the instructions are telling me in the manual.

I am chainging the stock spring on my Tora U-turn w/ a Black firm one. It is the U-Turn model. I have the spring out and getting ready to put the new one in, but it says add 30cc of 15wt oil in the bottom assembly etc. I am going to change the oil because like an idiot I let the oil run out w/out saving it. So here is my question??

Do I put the spring in attach the bottom bolt then put the 30cc's in from the top? or do I put the oil in the bottom, and if so how do you get the oil in behind the spring attachment on the bottom. I am a little confused and need some help. I have no problems w/ changing the spring just trying to figure out where exactly I need the oil to go in the left leg of a U-turn rock shox fork haahaha. Thanks guys, JC

Either way will work. The inside of that leg is hollow and the only thing in it is the U-Turn assembly. All that oil does is lube up the bushings and stanchions so everything slides smooth. I'd recommend using heavier oil than the recommended one.

Thanks for the info! That is what I thought by looking at it, but I wanted to make sure from someone who knows. Last thing I want is a fork that isn't working properly. My new spring should be here by the end of the week, so I will get that taken care of. Thanks a ton for the reply. JC
