air ride question

I know I am on the wrong forum for my 2016 flhxs but there seems to be a lot of knowledgable people on this site. I am looking at installing a diy air ride with Monroe MA 785 air shocks. I had a diy air ride with Monroe shocks on my last ride, a 2007 road king. Today I started taking measurements on the streetglide. When I removed the factory shocks on my streetglide and raised it to 14" center to center on the shock mounting bolts (the same distance as the Monroe shocks fully extended). At this point the swingarm just touches the transmission. Has anyone else noticed this? It is a very light touch but so not sure if it would cause long term problems.

I haven't noticed any contact on my 09 RG with the monroe air shocks but I haven't really inspected it.

09 Mirage Orange Pearl

Some people just need a high-five. In the head. With a chair

The contact only happens at full extension and it seems to be just barely touching.
