I installed my new Progressive heavy duty shocks on my 1997 Fatboy that has 39000 miles on it. I purchased it used so I don't know what it road like when it was new. But they were obviously shot they would bottom out and was hurting my back. At first I thought installing them would be a fairly easy job, a couple of hours maybe I mean it's 4 bolts how tough can it be LOL!, well it didn't go quite as I had imagined. Once I started to work on them I quickly discovered you can't get a socket on the bolts there's not enough room. I had to go and buy a special wrench. the next obstacle was my lift / jack. Once I finally got the bolts off I soon found out I couldn't get the shock out without lowering the bike pulling the jack out from under it so I could slide the shock out from the frame. I should of had somebody there to help me. putting the new ones back on turned to be a little tricky also. Had to unstrap the bike and rock it a little to line up the last bolt. The bike almost fell over on me, craped my pants a little. Once they were installed I thought maybe I did something wrong, the bike didn't budge when I got on it and jumped up and down on it to see how the shocks felt. They came from the factory set at the lightest setting and 1 inch lower than stock height. that worked for me. So I took the old Boy out for a ride. Whoa! What a difference I wish I would have put them on sooner I live in Michigan and some of the roads can be pretty harsh for a Softail, spine crushing. These things smoothed out the road. Turned some of those harsh pot holes into butter like floating on air, almost. I love riding that bike even more now. Money well spent excellent upgrade very high quality, beautifully finished. the only negative I could say is that 2 of the bushings were not well installed fully but once I put the bolts through and tightened them down they were good to go. Going to do the front fork sliders this winter. Thanks Progressive and J&P.

Got my new shocks they went on fairly easy and they work great! I should have gotten them a year ago it would have saved me a lot of work. They were a lot of money but worth it.
