I just cut 6 shocks apart and reclaimed about 2 quarts of oil. Was thinking of using this stuff as a penetrating oil or a cutting oil when drilling thick metal with a drill press.
This stuff seems to evaporate rather quickly.

Any ideas for other uses?

Aren't they filled with high pressure nitrogen?

the instruction sheet that comes with a KYB shock states to properly dispose of the shock, 2 holes must be drilled in the shaft, not the body and to drain the oil out before disposing.
