Who has modified their WR suspension?

Has anyone changed springs, revalved or both. I want to talk to anyone who has.
I just bought a '00 WR400. Even after backing off all the compression setting to minimum it's still to stiff for an old guy like me. I'm looking for a plush ride through the rough rocks and whoops of SW Idaho.
If you have softened you suspension let me know what changes you made, how you ride and how you like the result of your work and expense.

Do a search using the user name "Bryan Bosch" or the post, "Where to get my forks/shock re-worked?"
You will get some recommendations for different suspension tuners in the US.

My advice is you choose to revalve is to choose a shop that does both MX and trail setups. The pure MX shops won't know what you need.
BTW, I did not require new springs on my '00. I'm 195 + gear+ mud buildup
If you're a suspension idiot like me, have them revalved. Otherwise search on posts by James Dean, he has modified his shim stack (similar to what a shop would do) to remove some mid-range harshness.
