Well, I finally broke down and put in a pair of progressive shocks that are adjustable for height on my '02 FXST. Lowered the bike down 2 1/2 inches and still could go more. I love the look and the ride is about the same as it was to begin with, perhaps just a little stiffer. I'm not sure that I could put a wide tire kit on this with out raising the rear a little and/or trimming a couple of bolt/nuts on the inside(left) fender wall. Don't want to lower the front--although I realize that this is the latest trend--still like the long front-ends--so I'll leave that stock for now. Anyone else doing this to their bikes?
