Fork seals almost done, quick question

FWIW I did search, dang there are alot of posting on fork seals. I was wondering if you guys oil your seals before instalation of the seals. If this is done is it for seal life or to make it easier to put them on. Thanks.

Cant wait to try out forks with the appropriate amount of oil in them, plus I flipped the third bushing.

I wet them with oil to make them go in easier

Me too...

Cool, thanks, I wasn't sure if it was for extending the the life of the seal, like a double wiper seal (that would need oil in between the two wipers) or something. Thanks.
