I'm looking for photos of the Progressive Monotube front suspension drops.

Both 1" & 2" drop photos are appreciated.
Trying to get an idea of stance and ride height before install.

Thanks in advance.

I have HD 1" lower springs, but just purchased the Progressive Monotubes and am debating keeping it 1" drop or 2" as well.
Heres mine with the 1", Sorry I have no before pictures because i had it done before i took possession. Tons of pictures on my build thread(link in my signature)

Chi-town I like the ride alot however i prefer the suspension to be firm. I think it helped the handling and I haven't had any issues scraping my floorboards and i am aggressive in the twisties.

After being at Shark Week, had some time to compare a few different glides and there front ends.
Hogwild and TracyB both have 21" front wheels, both and both have Progressive front lowering kit. Tracy lowered hers 2" and Hogwild lowered his 1".
I have Harley front 1" lowering kit, and all 3 of these set ups had very different heights. We compared them using sunglasses for measurements, bottom of the fairing to the top of the fender.
I should have compared a standard for reference, but what i could tell it seemed as though, HD's is only about 3/4" drop, and Progressive kit is more like 1.5+" drop and 2.5+" drop when comparing to stock height.
I.M.O. you will not want to drop more than 2" using the Progressive. any more than that and your fairing will be hitting the fender.
