I was using the Silva bladder shock. The reason i use 60 wt. oil is because the shock piston has holes in it as opposed to a IRS shock that doesnt. The Silva shock requires heavier oil to get the shock working the way i needed it to.

I have never tried oil or surelube on king-pins.
Does this really make a difference or is it something
that only some pro drivers will notice?

Thx

ANd for clarification, where on the kingpins do you lube? I have been putting lube under the lower ball where the spring is and then moving it up and down a bit to work it in.

And do you reapply after every run?

Nah... I am a slacker, normally I am focusing on other things between runs like the center shock, damper tubes and tires. The front king pins get a shot of lube every now and then. I dont think it makes a massive difference, but keeping em lubed seems to keep them a bit more smooth. Not as much of a difference as the damper tubes or rear shock thats for sure!

It does make a noticable difference. It smoothes the car out and makes it much more predictable.
