You know more than I do, I just remember seeing an option on some website to have them rebuilt “softer” and I don’t rip mine in the desert so figure comfier is better.

I've run the TSW bravo tune, and unknown shock tune and a "flutter stack" on my front shocks and honestly couldn't tell the difference between any of them. Are you running OEM springs on low perch? That would probably help more than valving. The problem with me changing valving is there are 8-9 shims in the compression stack and you can change diameter and thickness. Larger diameter and thinner will make it softer, but how many do you change? There are so many variables you can change and without doing any tuning you don't really know what changes will work. Are you wanting softer in the front or rear or both? What springs are you running. You could also reduce the nitro pressure and also, the shocks i've pulled apart seem to have much thicker oil than the fox stuff i use so that could contribute to a stiffer feel as well.
