What does the "wt" rating mean in the context of suspension fluids?

This refers to how thick the oil is otherwise known as its viscosity. If water is 0 and tar is 100 you start to get an idea of what thickness 5 weight oil will be.

A heavier fluid or the one with more weight (wt) will take away some small bump compliance but the suspension will have a lot more support in the stroke.

A lighter fluid or the one with less weight will make the suspension a lot more supple, but the suspension will dive in a lot since the fluid will flow through the compression circuit alot easier.
