Do you have a manual? you will need on for this job. I my manual calls for 5wt but some people like 10wt fork oil which you can get at your local bike shop, but depends on you. Heavier wt oil = stiffer suspension. Some people do 7wt a mix of 5wt and 10wt. You will need two quarts but won't use all of it. Look in your manual for exact amounts for the inner and outer damper rods.

My manual says 220ml inner damper rod 285ml outer damper rod each fork.
