I have a 2012 roadglide and sent my rear shocks to Phoenix customs (bitchin baggers) to have my shocks lowered from 13 inches to 11 1/4. They did an awesome job! The bike looks great and keeping the shocks as original air use was a huge plus. 175.00 was so worth the money. I recommend them to everyone!

How is the ride with them being lowered? Do you have any before and after pics of the bike?

The ride is noticeably better. Especially in cornering. Sorry I'll try and get pictures up. I have 12 inch apes and it really looks great w the rear end dropped!

My shocks were 13 inches from eye toe eye. I was told by the Phoenix custom guy that on some of the road gildes Harley used the standard shocks that are the same ones used on the street glides which was what was on my bike.

The air shocks on my 2013 RGC are also 13" eye to eye but I'm also 6'4" with a 40" inseam so I kinda like the extra leg room. But the ride is so harsh on those stock air shocks I just ordered 13" Progressive 444s. Every one I spoke to before ordering said the shocks were 12". Go figure :eek:

You will see a great improvement with the 444's verses stockers. Just get the sag set right and it's pretty smooth.
