mike carver would be my choice. I would also dump that stupid QS and go to dual speed comp adjusters to get a good ride out of it.

06-07 Mileage: What?? Ride?? We're supposed to ride these things ?
I don't know Greg.... after riding my 18 with the QS3s, I gotta say the changes from setting to setting were very noticeable. Will the QS3 ever compare to a DSC ?? No, absolutely not. However, for probably 90% (maybe more) of the riders out there, not having to learn how to adjust the DSC properly and simply having 3 clicks to choose from, might just be the way to go.

HyGear is also a great company for customizing the shocks

IT FACTOR
Options suck.....at least having to choose which ones to waste money on..........

The QS3's work great,get them valved right and they are awesome,less time playing with clickers. I had Carver do my rears and my fronts will go there soon.

I weigh 275 and use the stock springs,the revalve was to cure some kicking in the rear and to fix the center shock which isn't a QS3.
