Coil overs in extremely cold weather

I am interested in doing the coil over conversion but I'm wondering how they hold up in extremely cold weather? Because if they don't then I can't do the conversion. And we can get temperatures around -40 during the winter.

The 5W FOX oil is the preferred choice for winter and cold weather use. Unlike some of the other shock manufactures that use a 7-10W.

Some vehicles have coil overs stock. Tacoma for example.
