Maybe in for a fork kit

I have a 950SE and had trailtricks redo the rear shock with a progressive spring and whatever he did to the valving. I'm satisfied with the rear shock as it is now as I was looking for more compliance over rocks. I was going to have him do the front forks but he moved back to South America

I'm definitely not satisfied with the forks as they are now and will be looking to have them redone in the near future. They are way to harsh over the babyhead rocks of Baja. I don't pound whoops or get big air and I don't race, and if I'm smart I won't start racing. I will probably use my SE in the future mostly for speedy Baja and Rocky Mountain trail exploration.

I've been waiting to chime in here until I see the price for the fork kit but thought I'd check in to see if you have an approximate (even close to ballpark) price yet and whether you think I'd be best served with one of these kits or with something else.
