I read that you shoud soak the new shock seals in shock oil to make them expand so you get a better seal.
How long should you soak them?
Does it matter in what weight oil?
I find this strange, since I dont think the silicone seals should "absorb" anything.
Is this just an old wives fable?
well, either way, mine have been soaking for 5.5 hours in 30 wt. So if I go to put them in and they are HUGE then I know that silicone seals can gain weight.
It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice.
