I would just stick with the recommended weight oil.
Mantou has always recommended either Maxima or Motorex fork oils. Mostly in 5wt.
Now that I'm thinking about it. I don't know that you have to drain the damper fluid to change the spring. Isn't that splice got a semi bath system like my Minute1? If thats the case you'll need some Manitou Semi Bath fluid for the slider assembley and some good bike grease like Buzzies Slick Honey or Manitou Prep M.
( The new stuff, not the old Prep M ).
