Hello List,

Am going through rear suspension components in preparation for reassembly.
Have Armstrong dampers.  About twice the force is required to move one damper
arm vs. the other.  Seems like the resistance of the two dampers should be
close.  Fluid levels are equal.

So, should the resistance of the dampers be close to the same?  If they
aren't, is there an easy fix?  BTW, is there an off-the-shelf oil that can be
used, or is TR shock absorber fluid required.  Thanks.
