    I need to replace the rear shocks and need some advice on what is available for my old dog. Thanks in advance. I also need to replace the left gas cap.

    Mike, you're shocks may be rebuildable. If they are like mine they can be sent back to the factory and rebuilt. image.jpeg

    Thanks for the reply. The previous owner told me that he just rebuilt them but the are leaking. The "Harley shop" tech stated that he didn't think they could be that they are just wore out and to check drag specialties. Anyone know where I might get a set?.

    You got an older dog Should be any shock for a Harley softail late 80 early 90's that you fancy should work.

    A vendor on here sells some too

    If you're shocks look like mine don't throw them away. Send me a picture of them. I might be interested in them.

    Don't know for sure. Frank is the man with the older dogs.

    I'm certain any similar Harley softail shock that looks like that will work though. Just get the right length

    I never saw a shock like those. They look expensive. Give Wildsteedworx a call or email. Curtis should know what would work.

    These are just like mine (i.e. Frank's). They are Works Performance shocks. http://www.worksperformance.com Pretty sure one could get on the phone with them and they would walk you through how to size them.

    I used a set of Progressives on my Vintage Sport, but any set made for an FX-series Harley should fit provided you get the proper length. Don't do like I did and get a set that's too short, you'll piss yourself off when you have to buy that new rear tire!

    I need shocks as well. I don't like the painted spring. 17264489_10212207698975654_7939438005004882694_n.jpg

    I know this is an older post but are these shocks mounted upside down or is it just me.

    Not all shocks are meant to be mounted upside down. Looks like its right side up to me. However having the adjuster on the top is kinda an eye sore.

    And the 2 adjusting nuts and bare threads aren't, just an opinion.

    ? Huh? Yes I agree the whole adjuster on the top is an eye sore including the bare nut/threads

    The tension adjuster is on the bottom in the picture. The ride height is on the top/ I just thought they were upside down. I put my burly shocks on the streetglide in the opposite orientation.

    Sorry...think my comment was confusing.

    Yes..I do think it's upside down as well.

    I was just mentioning that some shocks are meant to be mounted upside down. These probably are fine to mount upside down.
