How much oil and Freon do I install?

I am replacing my compressor and dryer.

Previous oil was blown out as the compressor failed. I am guessing I need to install 3-4 oz of oil.

How much Freon?

My 2006 mega cab holds 1lb 14oz of freon . I do think its 1oz or 1ml of oil for every compent you replace . It's late and brain says go to bed. But it should be on decal underhood on the rad surport.

I would not add too much oil as the new compressors come with oil already in them.

The compressor you get will have a tag on it if it needs oil, and the standard we use is one 8oz bottle, putting about 6 in the compressor (either side it doesn't matter) and the remaining 2 in the accumulator.
