I have a 1988 FXRS-Sp (Low Rider Sport Edition) with Progressive Suspension (discontinued) 18/418 Series shocks. The ride has become harsh, and playing with the adjustments has not helped.

I guess it's time to replace the old 18/418s and I'd like to go with the Progressive 970 series shocks if possible. Although they are listed for Sportsters that use the same shocks as the FXRs, the Progressive web site fitment chart does not show the 970 for my FXRS-Sp. A Progressive rep cannot say for sure if they will fit or not.

Does anyone have first- or reliable second-hand knowledge on installing 970s on an FXRS? A part number would be great!

Appreciate your help.
