How hard is it, I did replace fork seals few times before, but never valves.
I ride MX so I want to soften up going over braking and accelerating bumps.

It's a job that requires good mechanical and manual skills, and the ability to pay close attention to detail. It also requires a basic understanding of how the units operate. If you're interested, you should hang out in the suspension forum for a while. Another thing to do when you're ready to go with it is to get in touch with Dave Johnson at SMART Performance. He sells DIY kits as well as complete full service revalves, and he can set you up with what you need to do your own stuff.
