I assume you are talking about shock oil. I recommend this to start with:

bigmike,

Check with ROB at Windtunnel (Murdock RC) or Muddslide Motorsports

I know both have some different lubes for the Kingpins and the damper tubes.

bigmike,

I know the Windtunnel 'ShurLube' came from the old Bolink Sure Lube, but I believe Rob has added color to be able to quickly identify which is what.

Get ahold of him directly for an answer on the viscosity or thickness.

The old Bolink stuff was rated by a simple number 1-4, and I never saw the viscosity numbers....but he would be able to answer better.
