I am looking for some advice on the Progressive 12" black 444 rear shocks.
I will be installing them on a 13 Ultra with a rider ay 195 / passenger 130 50% two up rides.
Should I get the Heavy duty spring or the regular springs?

Dude im 300+ and my gfriend is 118lbs. I used the stock 13" harley shocks for 32k miles without issue. I would assume progressive shocks are way better than HD so id imagine youll be fine with regular duty shocks

I have the HD spring. 245lbs and wife is 120, no issues at all. I can run the second click on the adjuster with plenty more spring to go . If I had the the regular spring I would be closer to 4-5 clicks .
