How difficult is install of progressive

Ok with my bike down I am thinking of adding the progressive suspension to the front at least. Would like to do chrome front end and wheel all at same time. I have limited mechanical ability. ( OK I have 0 but a strong desire to learn and a few friends with limited) Is this a simple change or worth paying the dealer?

If you have a Service Manual for your Roadglide and follow the Progressive Instructions you shouldn't have a problem.
Having friends to help is a plus too.
There are many threads on here showing how it's done.
Try a search and read as much as you can to gain the info.
Any problems just post on here and I'm sure many members will chime in to help ya!
Best of Luck!

If you have the manual it is fairly straight forward. They drop right in. Hardest part is just taking them off. Get a quote from a dealer and I bet you'll want to try it yourself. Plenty of YouTube videos to help!

Simple process. If its your first time, it might take you 3 hours.

It's not too hard, just lean on us that have done it. Also, start by watching this:
