Airhead F suspension question

I've got my forks off the bike doing new steering bearings - Took the whole assembly off as one piece (forks, brace, lower triple clamp).

Here's the question - Would a good wrench/suspension guru/tech be able to work on the front shocks as a whole off the bike...? I recently changed out the springs (from old Progressives to new ones), and new fork seals - but it's still got too much stiction (which may or may not have caused my high speed wobble a few weeks ago) and very little sag of any.

I figure it's off the bike and I could drop it off to a wrench/tech and save some $ since it' already off the bike. I know you need to check rear suspension while connected to the bike and I guess same for front - but figured I'd ask. I'm thinking a real old wizard with front suspensions could set it up right off the bike - or at least improve it.
