Dude, if you are out of shock oil completely you need to get some new shocks!! Have you noticed them leaking or something? It's pretty unusual to see a shock with no oil.... Are you sure there was oil in them to start? BTW what do you think of that Titan? I almost bought one but decided on the Savage for speed v.s crushing everything in my path with the Titan. Awesome looking truck tho.
See YA!

not sure if I am completely out of shock oil, gotta check that
don't think they are leaking tho
the titan is a good MT, true power, but some members at titanforums.com are having problems with the cva/cvd..

If you haven't noticed them leaking oil and they are out of oil then you probably just never had oil in them to start. 8 big shocks like that would make a real mess if they are leaking, you would notice that. Anyway, I think you could use a 30 weight oil in those shocks and be in good shape. More that that and it will just not have the response you want. The CVD issues people are having I have heard are related to not loc-titing them, unless you are talking about breakage. I think the only way to avoid that on a 15 pound truck is to drive like a sissy!!!! NOT!! See Ya! Got any cool pics of your truck?
