Check out the Arnott website they do have a specific shock but it costs way more than the corvette monroe shocks.

Yeah, can't beat it. Much better than stock and they go lower than Arnott.

The bilsteins don't have different settings where as the others have a an 11 position ride setting.

Those are the Aldan series...thats what Frankie & I run on our bikes. HogWild has a set of the Bilsteins. Im sure he'll chime in here and tell ya more about em. I rode on the back of his bike a few times in Daytona and they seemed pretty comfortable.

I was riding my stock 13" shocks on my Road Glide all season with 5 psi solo and around 20 psi when riding 2-up. I found a great deal on the Arnott Billstein's and installed them a few hours ago. I then went for a 40 miles ride and for the first time this season my back is KILLING me. No matter how much or little pressure the ride with the Billstein's is ROUGH. Very Very stiff. I found a set of the Aldans and will install them Monday when they arrive. If there not at least as smooth as the stock shocks I'll be going back to stock.....for sure. Now to pop a few Tylenol and off to bed!
