Looking for suspension options...

I know I seen some posts about suspension options but haven’t really seen what I’m looking for. I am gonna be doing mostly trail riding with track riding around once a month. My question is, I have the 06 ltz with the rezzies. Should I send them out to get revalvded? Or get some trx 450r shocks that I see that are in good condition for about 250 and get them revalved for some better suspension. So my question basically is will it pay to get the 450r shocks or is it a Money saver to get similar performance and get my 06 rezzies redone to my weight. Thanks!

I have a 2003 Z400. I went from the original shocks to resis from a 2007 I purchased for $200 on eBay last month. They had great compression and work night and day different on the sand and spring time mountain ice/snowmobile trails. I would imagine the 450 shocks would be better and revalved would be even better for your riding style. Doing much jumping with the z400 stock 2007 resis shocks kind of worry me.

I built my own swing arm linkage and dog bone using steel bar stock and heim joints to change the geometry I can launch on pavement without dragging the grab bar. In fact the tires break loose before ever building enough power to lift the front. Purchased a elka stage 3 rear for 300 bucks brand new
