Replace Suspension?

Anyone have opinions regarding replacement of springs and/or shocks? Straight vs. progressive rate springs, brand names, etc.?
Just clocked over 40,000 miles and wondering if a suspension tune up might be needed. Thank you.

Re: Replace Suspension?

At about that milage, I had Hyperpro springs installed front & back, during the Duluth CCR. I haven't felt like I've needed anything else done to suspension since.

Have fun,

Re: Replace Suspension?

Just replaced shocks/springs at 62K. Front was bottoming out over RR crossings.

Got a superb deal on OEM units from https://re-psycle.com/ that had only six miles on them.

Re: Replace Suspension?

Mine did almost 100k on OEMs. I just topped up rear with jack oil when required - never felt bad
