should be able to thread the three nuts onto their respective shafts (loosely) then install the bottom half back together no problems. It didn't require any special tools when i did my suspension.

As far as the oil goes, i filled it up (with the shock in the strut housing) untill i just barely saw the oil with the naked eye. Everything turned out perfectly, hope that helps. :D
