Suspension work in PHX area?

I left my F650GS Dakar in Scottsdale and will be using it for fly/rides in the near future. I'd like to make arrangements to get the forks and rear shock done (perhaps a replacement in the rear, emulators/springs in the front).

Locals, who would you recommend? I don't mind paying to get it done as I will be on vacation when I get there so don't want to spend any time wrenching.

If there is anyone to avoid, horror stories are welcome via PM if you don't want to post them in public.

Thanks in advance!

If you want to go full on race ready, Alan Stillwell is in Scottsdale as well.

Thanks to all who replied. Looks like some good options are available in my future (883 days and counting to retirement) home. My needs are pretty simple, I think...I don't need full on race by any means, it's a 14 year old F650 Dakar that is just tired and I want to keep it forever so I'm not adverse to having the suspension refreshed. A setup for my short, fat ass and a couple of overstuffed Jesse bags will do it for me.

Looking forward to riding with some of you soon!
