Thinking of going to the air shocks but from what I have seen the air shock won't fit on the left side and the original FXRT left shock was special. shorter tighter spring . Regular shocks are adjustable for load but with RT hard bags you can't get access to adjust, hence the convenience of air shocks. I am thinking of just getting a set from Elvis. he has a few sets for about $200-$250 which isn't that bad considering.
I think I get it now. Thanks.

And congratulations. You get an assist on my 5000th.
