Being verticially challenged (5'6"), and needing to lower my '05 Ultra Classic, I scoured these forums for suggestion and recommendations as to the best course of action. I decided to lower the front end and install 11 1/2" Progressive 440 shocks, as these 2 options seemed to be the most popular and widely suggested. This last weekend myself and my wife went on our first road trip since making the mods and we were quite disappointed - in the 440's. We were bottoming out a lot, so I adjusted the shocks to compensate only to find that by adjusting the shocks to be firmer, I was raising the bike. My wife and I weight less than 330 lbs combined, and we didn't pac the bags tight so I can't see that as being the problem, but I had to raise the shocks so high that it totally offset the lower shock and I still can't touch properly. Now I've spent a lot of money on top of the line shocks that are useless. I thought these shocks adjusted without raising the bike. Is there an adustment I can make that I'm overlooking or am I just SOL?
