CVO Rear shock???

Hey guys I have the opportunity to get a set of 2013 CVO StreetGlide rear shocks less than half price of new ones and been wanting to lower the rear of my bike anyway. My questions is does anybody regret getting rid of their air ride shocks to go to one's with springs?? I ran the StreetGlide air shocks on my last ultra and was going that route until I got a phone call today about the CVO shocks for sale. Pros and cons guys thanks

Changed to 940's and monotubes from Progressive night and day from HD stock components.
The stock air shocks often bottoms out when bags loaded and two up even at 50 PSI max pre.

No regrets. I ran the progressive 412 for a year which is their entry level and it was still way better riding than stock.

Would definitely be an upgrade from the factory air shocks. I went with the Progressive 412's. Much improvement over stock.
