The servo that did all the work on my Hawk over the years used motorbike fork oil when they refilled all of mine.
I could not tell you what brand
I suspect there's not much difference, despite what the manufacturers would claim

Subject: [Sunbeam Talbot Email List] Armstrong shock absorbers

I'm going to drain and refill the oil in all 4 shock absorbers to see if it balances out the "bounce" mis match on my car.
The manual states Armstrongs own oil but I've been told I can use SAE 20 motorbike fork oil instead, just over 500ml needed for all 4 shocks.
What oil do you use ?
