Did you get them rebuilt? How did it go?

It's turned out to be a touch more than work in progress. Parts are getting hard to find and Progressive Suspension has not been helpful. The 1172 series spring set are about as close as I've been able to get (so far.) IMO when Progressive produced their OE replacement shocks for the 1500, they missed the proper setup in lieu of their suggestion to upgrade to the HD spring setup.
I'm looking forward to finishing rebuild, in spite of all the pot holes I'm dealing with.. pc
