Fitment of rear shocks

Got offered a good deal on rear adjustable Harley shocks from a 2019 touring.

The Harley site doesn’t list them as fitting on my 2013 Fltrx. Anyone know for certain if they’ll bolt on and properly fit?

Yes they should bolt up. Both models use 13” shocks.

yes, they will fit, and actually both models have 12'' shocks. the ultras have 13'' shocks, and if you can find those, even better. that extra inch of travel makes a huge difference.

while they will physically fit, you don't want to use the premium hand adjustable shocks on the older swingarms. the newer swingarms are a lot more robust and are designed to handle the different loads put on it. the hd shocks are really a mono shock with a dummy shock on the right

check out this video:

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Yep. I forgot all about that. Ignore my comment earlier.
