rear shock

I believe the shocks are non-serviceable.

Not quite right... I dismantled mine, re-built & serviced them with fresh quality (15W Belray) oil. Improved, but not enough. I ended up having aftermarket shocks installed.

To the OP... Just use Gadget's guide for the 1500 / 1600 shocks. They're close enough, & the quantity of oil is not so important as having the same amount in each side.

I didn't like Gadget's method for compressing the springs, so I came up with another way - as in the picture.
