Has anyone sent their suspension out for service/upgrade and if so who do you reccomend? Would prefer someplace in SW USA. Currently thinking about Race Tech and getting some Gold Valves with Precision Concepts a close second.

Have you tried dicks racing? They are local and even have a website ( I know a few people that have used him and they are real happy.

I'm going over there myself this week to purchase a race tech rear shock spring. Hope this helps...Jim
