In Reply to: NO, not with a GAS strut! posted by Mike on September 04, 2001 at 11:20:19:
THe oil is made to cool a normal strut, wiht a gat strut you DO NOT put oil in it. The instructions that came wiht them tell you that!
Anyone know if you need to replace the oil in the strut housing before installing Bilstien sport struts? Chilton shop manual says not to put oil if the rod diameter is greater than 1.3" which is the case with the sport shocks. However this does not seem right. Don't you need the oil to transfer heat from the strut insert to the housing?
