I recently purchased the CFR pipe and was curious of how low I can go with Progressive 440's w/o scraping. Keep in mind, I ride 2 up alot. Our combined weight is around 300lbs. I'm going to buy the lowering kit in the near future and want to make sure I buy the right size rear springs. Thanks in advance...

I have an "A" model, I borrowed a set of 11" shocks, for a Electra glide, and everything rubbed. I bought a set of 12" 412's and everything is perfect, my wife and I's combined weight is 330 pounds and I have never bottomed out. I recommend 12" shocks. I hope that helped.

As stated above by coinpurse, you should be fine with 12" and I recommend the 440's

I scrape junk on the stock setup. Going lower made it worse, even tho I just lowered it to 12.5" springs.
