Did you do springs and shockware at the same time? I'm curious about the incremental benefit of shockware. I've had the swings for a year, and I've been happy (enough?).

I put the springs in myself, and it took about 6 hours (conservatively). If I did it again, I would easily cut 1.5 hours off the job. 10 hours for a dealer is ridiculous. Just my $0.02.

I'm curious, has anybody raced a Dinan S2 550 vs stock? I did mine in Dec, and I'm in the camp of the underwhelmed... Nice, sure. Blown away? Not me.
