Oh man, I would be all over that. Not only for the "sort of" free stuff, but for the chance to get information from, and give feedback to, the folks that actually chose the recommended shocks.

There have been many discussions of wishing for a shock that was a little firmer, a little softer, longer, shorter, etc and it would interesting to see how it actually works.

While the sound of free anything is exciting, I just don't see the need. My Travato rides and handles very nicely, so I have no need for improvement.

I might go for it but would definitely want assurances that they would put the old shocks back on if I don't like them. I am a huge fan of Bilstiens and have had them on every class A I have owned including my current Bounder but there's a chance that the early versions could be not so good.
