Are you still bottoming the suspension occasionally? If you aren't bottoming the suspension at least maybe once a ride, then you aren't utilizing all the available travel. Try backing out on the compression damping front and rear until you are bottoming once or twice a ride. Then, you'll have to find someone smarter than me to help you set up the rebound!
By the way, I just got my suspension back from the local guru, who revalved both front and rear. What a difference! The bike tracks straighter, and takes the sharp bumps (rocks and roots) with much less upset to the bike than before. It is definitely more confidence inspiring, and immediately allowed me to ride the same speeds with less effort, and will ultimately allow me to go faster I am sure. Find someone that know's their stuff in your area, this is money well spent!

FRONT: TOP: 1 click in BOTTOM: 4 clicks in
REAR: SIDE: 1 in & 1 CLOCKWISE
BOTTOM: 2 in
I think this works the best for me with lots of futzin' and I am at 240#'s + beer and tools.
It doesn't pogo and keeps the tires on the ground as much as possible.
