Mark is located in Atlanta, but could do a quick turn around for you. He work is amoung the best in the industry. He does work for several Pro's both Super Cross and Desert riders. I don't think any of the shops in the country can match his workmanship or his prices.
I love what he has done for my WR....MX and Trails are way too much fun now...

White Brothers are great when it comes to Exhaust systems and after market items....However...They are NOT suspension Experts. You want to deal with a business that dedicates their full resources when it comes to your suspension...like Race Tech..and some of the others. A muffler or a skid plate won't get you hurt or killed if it's not setup properly.

MX-Tech has a facility in western Pa. John Curea (hangs out here at TT) runs it and did my suspenders. Great service and workmanship. He updated my bottoming cones but, I can't tell you if their improved..... the suspension works to good

My advise is to ask alot of questions, find out what is and what is not included in the revalve price. You might get a quote from someone only to find out later that oil, shims, etc.. were "extra".
Some shops will invite you in to watch the whole procedure, this can be an education in itself.
Ask for all old parts back. It seems to be getting common place to replace bushings when they arent needed to be changed. Unless the forks were installed incorrectly, where as you get a lot of side load on the bushing or the oil was extremely contaminated, they are usually just fine.
If they change your bushings, take a look at them when you get the old ones back. If the outer bushings still has the teflon (black) coating all the way around the inside and the inner (the smaller one) bushing has solid teflon on the outside they are good. If you see a bushing that has the teflon "scraped" off, it is usually because of incorrect disassembly procedures, this is not your fault, you shouldnt be responsible.
And also, make sure the shop offers a full money back guarentee, if they dont, they dont beleive in thier work, find another shop......
There are alot of good suspension shops and (as like anything) some less than credible...its your hard earned cash, be careful.
Good Luck, John
