    Has anyone installed these in a dresser ?
    I have an 09 FLHX and progressive is giving a free set if you
    buy a set of 440 shocks.
    Also, do the forks need to be removed to install these ??

    thanks johnv

    I have not done this setup on my SG yet but thinking of doing it , I have done this setup 440 IAS shocks and proggresive fork springs in my 08 VRod and its overwhelming diffrence between the stock set up on the VRod as far as handling and 2 up riding .So this the reason I am thinking of duing this at some point .If you due it post back here with your results

    you will have to remove forks, also take em apart, get type e fluid, also have a 1"3/8 wrench handy for fork top nut on triple tree, if you dont have the wrench, a socket will do, you will just have to remove the handlebars. it isnt difficult. the fork caps will prolly be tighter than they should be. a service manual has detailed instructions. i used the harley lowering springs on my 2010 sg

    I have used progressive in my 06 street glide and was very happy with the look and ride. The install can be a bit involved, but definitely do-able.
