I figure I'll have to drop the compressor to get to that #18 spot with this oil. However, I'm still on the fence with replacing the worn struts with these air struts, or just going to gas, since I can't really say how much longer this compressor is going to hold out..
Attaching a new pic of where to put the needle in and oil, no need to drop the compressor, it will suck the oil into lube it once you reconnect the hose, then turn the key on and have it come on for a few seconds.
It may take a few times of running for it to lube it well.
