Hey, I would recommend 40wt oil. It is kinda like the standard middle of the road oil. Camber is supposed to angle the tires to compensate for the lost contact area on the road due to body roll in high speed corners.

I prefer a lighter oil weight. I want the shock to actually cycle and dampen the jumps, bumps and whoops. Too thick of an oil and the shock will not function properly. Spring rate has a lot to do with it also. A combination of both gets that "sweet" spot that you are looking for. (y)
