Default Restaining cabinets

I've seen the talks about cabinet painting but what about cabinet staining. In particular say golden oak cabinets that customers want a darker stain. What are some of your insights? I've been reading about gel stains over scuffed and cleaned prior finishes. I'm not seasoned in this field but get a fair amount of inquiries.

We use either gel stains (Old Masters) or Behlen's Shading and Glazing stain. We brush it on and then soften it with either a badger blender or an ox-hair brush. The gels stains are widely available, but need to dry overnight, while the Behlen's are a little harder to find, come in only a handful of colors, but are ready to recoat within a hour.

Is a thorough cleaning and 180-220 scuff standard prep to the gel?

That's pretty what we do, as long as the oroginal finish is intact.
