Suspension upgrade

Greetings :D
I have a 2000 gl1500se with progressive front springs. The bike came that way, I'm not really happy with them, is there a better upgrade out their that someone could suggest ?
Thanks

Progressive now has a monoshock kit that might be more to your liking, and Traxxion has kits to redo the front ends.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

The Progressive cartridge shock is for the GL1800 only, they don't have a GL1500 version.
