I have a pair of stock shocks, I will sell and send to skullent. You will have no down time and then you can sell yours and so on.

does this effect handling ???

This looks like something I'd be interested in doing -

Just wondering if shortening the rear shocks will noticeably effect a V Rod's handling ?

Would it be better to also lower the front of the bike, and if so, how would a guy do that ?

Thanks for any info,

EE

I decided to go the Progressive route because I was told the ride will be better, even with an inch lower. Damn, he was right. Maybe I didn't have my stock shocks on the right setting, but with the Progressives on the softest setting, the ride is smooooth, and I haven't bottomed out. Just my :2cents

I haven't used them, but heard from somebody who did that is was a good way to go.
