Upgrade my Legends air ride to a quality shock

I'm ready to upgrade my 2012 Road Glide custom with Legends air ride to a quality shock. I want to stay with a 12 inch shock that the bike came with looking at either Progressive or Legends shocks. Looking for suggestions and what are you guys running. I've looked at a lot of brands and some only come in a 13 inch shock and I prefer to stay with 12 inch shock that came on my bike as the Legends air ride shocks are 13 inch. Thanks for any suggestions or input you guys can give me

You can't go wrong with Ohlins shocks. Just bought a set from Howard. Still getting them set up. Review to follow. So far very good. Much better than stock!

A thought to the supershox. 13" but sits at 12". Easily adjustable. And a damn comfy ride. Even 2 up towing a trailer.

Question Why?

Why do you want to change from the Legends?

Pro Action Suspension in Beaver Falls, Pa. Worth a phone call to talk to the owner or the shop guys. They all ride sharks and have a long history in the motorcycle business. Honest and very knowledgeable. Have a set on my 01 Electra Glide, haven't swapped them out to my Road Glide yet, but night and day from the 440 progressives. My .02 cents!

Currently have the 13 does ride great and at 12" height. I know ordered the supershox 14" and will ride as a 12" with the extra bracket but more travel.
