Part number 118-200-020-016

Anyone installed these in the US ?  I can't find a suspension shop who will handle it.  Does anyone have a recommendation as to who I could use (preferably East of the Mississippi)?

GMD Computrack Boston has done this kit on a friend of mine’s T7 and will be doing it to mine over the winter. 
Call and ask for Peter Kates. Tell him Adam Bagdon sent you 😉

Follow up:  GMD Computrack Boston installed the mod with springs appropriate for my weight. Their turnaround was very expeditious and the forks are much improved over stock. They have earned my best recommendation for those of you considering this mod.  I also used the K Tech rear shock revalve kit and spring. This suspension mod has been the best money I've spent on the bike (other than the infernal seat replacement).

Don´t know anout the part numbers.

I´ve got K-tech springs front and back, no additional spacers as the springs were a few mm longer than the origanal ones.

Front fork. I replaced the valves to the K-Tec ones and changed the oil from wt10 to wt 7,5.

 

It´s a lot better now but not perfect for every condition.

Riding on gravel roads, it´s very good but high speed chatter is still a concern, I can dial it out but then it will suffer on better roads.

I have soften it more and more, and now it will bottom out if I hit at big rock or something like thar, otehwise it feels just wright for shat I need the suspension to do.

 

If I lived in Australia and did more high speed riding in different terrains I might reconsider, but for what I´m doing, the suspension is not what s holding me back.
