My front suspension was overhauled a couple of years ago.
Last week I finally lowered my car to the ground for the first time in many many years.
So, I want to fill the front dampers with oil.
Is there any specific procedure for filling the dampers? Is there an air bleed on the top of the dampers?

My oil reservoir is also freshly overhauled, so looking forward to seing the plunger in action  Grin

things seem to be working correctly:

however, new questions arise:)

1.how are the tubes routed originally?
2.how do I know when the dampers are topped up? Will the plunger simply cease to move?
3.what kind of tubes are used originally?  I used clear PVC tubes now, so I could see the plunger working properly.
