Default Shock oil

Hey Guys just picked up my LCC today from the LHS and looks like i have a leaky shock. So I opened it up and it has no oil in it. What is the oil that came form the factory? I have searched the forum to find nothing. It also looks like I got one that has the old style cvd's. I have sent an e-mail off so we shall see how that goes. I hope this isnt an indication as to how things are going to go!!!! Thanks Greg

The owners manual says 30wt. It's listed in the back of your book.

First time I had 3 shocks lecking so bad from shaft seal so took a part clean super good put it back still same problem. (seem losi seal size problem)
I replaced with AX10 stock shock seal (little biger and ticker)

Crank down the shock cartridge (more than finger tight!) ... I haven't rebuilt my shocks for quite a while now... still feel as smooth as the day I rebuilt them, no leaks etc...

The losi shocks are fine, you just have to rebuild them right.

Default use ax10 seal

When remove the seal houseing very easy to do not brack cover.
shock has two each seals.
If you feel shaft too tite just change one seal, live the one old one.

be sure to bleed it good, if you dont it can cause either a headache of a leak again or some funky handling chacteristics.

fill to the thread area in side, put shaft with piston in body, let it settle to the bottom, slowly screw the seal end on letting excess oil to leak out. dont let the shaft come out untill the cap is tight.
