    Want to replace the stock shocks on an 01 FXDL, For the best ride should i go with a good progressive shock? I put a pair of 99 roadking shocks on and was not impressed with the way they rode. Any rcommendations on a GOOD shock? Terry

    yes they went right on, about an inch longer, was told not to put more than 15 pounds pressure in them. But did not seem to ride any better than the stock shocks. terry

    Progressive makes an air ride system for your bike. I would talk to them (progressive) descibe the type of riding you do and see what they recomend. Also a change in the seat may make the change you are looking for.
    Good luck

    Just ordered a pair of the 440's on line. Brand new for 437.00 they shold smooth things out. Might do the seat later, but mine does fit me pretty good. terry

    You should really like the difference with the 440's. I have been using them for about a year on my '06 Lowrider. I should have bought them much earlier.:)
