Edit: I find his site this morning. Thanks for the heads up, Doug.
I did some reading on those shocks, and yeah, some guys fix them up nice. I foundone short blog and I don't know if it's the same guy you know or not. As delivered they are kinda sloppy ( like random air charges and fluid levels), but some basic fiddling can whip them in to shape easily. They use bending shims, so the sky is the limit on tuning ride quality, if needed.

My other options was $300+ for a pair of basic Hagons that could never be tuned, or $1500+ for "good" shocks. I'm looking forward to playing with these shocks. I would be interested in any info you have about the guy who worked your shocks.
