    1948 Chevys didn't have those type of shocks on them. I believe '38 was the last year.

    Try the link below to the Old Car Manuals Project and look at the '48 Chevy shop manual for info........

    Clean off the top, remove the cap and fill with hydraulic jack oil. That is all they need as a rule.

    When you fill them, don't fill all the way to the top, but leave about a 1/4" space, so you don't blow the seals prematurely with extreme shock travel.
