Love riding Moab slickrock btw
Good point about the revalving. Harold felt confident the rears didn't need revalving with the 672's. He mentioned he has customers which have run the stiffer springs for a couple years with no issues, not to say revalving wouldn't be ideal. I'll see how they hold up after commuting & track duties.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy the slickrock soon!
