Make sure you replace both seals and WIPERS while you are at it, and replace the contaminated fluid. Plain old hydraulic jack fluid is just fine - all it does is provide lubrication - no "special" fork fluid needed.
I also installed accordion boots while I was at it to greatly extend the life of the seals.
I had searched & found all previous messages & direction, including your one about according boots. I think I'll do that also. Another Winter project for the long winter days & nights in Canada :-)
