    Coil suspension fork maintenance

    Most guides on the internet are about forks which work using air pressure however i have a coil suspension fork - Rockshox Tora (some old model) and i don't have it's manual. You can see the fork in attachments.

    In all fork maintainance videos i see that there is a foam ring under the wiper seals however there isn't one in mine. Then how i should lubricate the stanchions? Just put some lube underneath the wiper seal where the foam rings were supposed to be? And what kind of lube i should use?
    Is there anything else i should do for my fork maintenance other than that?

    Also why is that my lockout isn't a lockout anymore - it still gives a stiff ride however the suspension works a bit? Maybe it has something to do with riding on rough roads with lockout enabled?

    Sorry for asking so many questions
