Default Should I revalve my Billsteins?

Long story short - I've got a set of slightly used (but in decent condition) Billstein shocks from a '99 10AE. I'm going to run 550/400 QA1 springs and Ebay perches on them.

Now, the question - should I send the shocks out for a revalve or will they handle these spring rates on OEM valving? I know I'm not going to get the best possible handling but this is a daily driver and it's not going to see a lot of track time (2-3 events per year?).

Send them to Bernie.

You'll never get around to putting them in anyway.

Win win.
