Make sure you set it up on a bike jack. Makes it alot easier to line up the bolt holes when installing them

IIRC mine are from la chopper on my 11 RGU. On my last RG, an 05 model they were a different brand. I weigh about 210 and the wife weighs about 120. No issues with bottoming out with either bike.
