I haven't tried the Progressive's yet (deciding between them, the air shocks and smooth polished shocks) but the stock shock's ride quality is horrible IMHO. If you stiffen them up you need a mouth-piece to keep your teeth on any decent size bump at high speed, if you soften them they bottom out.Kennedy said:Not sure why so many go for these shocks, can't see how the ride can be "so much better" in an ADJUSTABLE shock. If it's too soft and squishy, stiffen it up.
PM me I have a dealer account for them, I'll hook you up.justinh said:I'm thinking about getting rid of the Dog's A$$. I want to lower the rear end with the Progressive 440's, where can I get the best price?
P.S. I'm up for a group buy if anyone can set it up.

By the time I got done it was $500. I appreciated his advise on the subject and his good service. I didn't shop him.
For me (I ride 2-up), it was worth every nickel and I'd spend it again, only faster. I had the stock shocks as jacked up as they would go and it wasn't enough. I got the 13" (stock height), but they are available in 12" too I understand.
