Great write up Mushu!
If you don't have the extra pair of hands, I use a small pry bar with a towel over it. Put the end of the pry bar under the handle bar (with towel on it to protect the handlebar). Then pressing down on the pry bar (with same socket as Mushu's write up), I can hold down the spring tension with one hand and remove the spring clip with the other. Same to install.
I stirpped my forks down and replaced the seals so I just used a measuring cup to add the right amount of fork oil. Believe you can only do this if the fork is truely void of all old oil.
Fork oil weight is determined by rider weight. Comes in I believe 5, 10, and 15 W weights, pick the one for your normal load weight.
