Lower Front End?

I have a 2004 Road glide and trying to lower the front (short legs) I purchased a progressive suspension drop in fork lowering kit, according to the instructions I only need one because I have a damper rod on the right side, has anyone done this? I could use some help? thank you

I have not done one, but I would call progressive customer service to be sure you got the right kit before you do anything.

Back in 2001 I lowered the bike I had at that time. Everything I read on the subject said you should never lower ONLY the front. It was okay to lower only the rear and leave the front stock height but not okay to go the other way. Just throwing it out there, you might want to look into that if you're thinking of lowering only the front.
