I believe your frame is a standard softail. You can go with the Progressive 422, get the Heave Duty version. Make sure you get the 422-4001C. They have the eyelets on both sides of the shock. Not sure what shocks they used on that older model but you should also get a new bolt and washer kit.

Check out wildsteedworx.com, he is a member on here and carries those shocks. I use them and love them.

Good evening fellas, I m in the market for some shocks as well. The bike is an 03 Mastiff. Suggestions? Are the same as the Wolf?

I went to wild steed and Mastiff wasn’t a model option.
Call Curtis at WSW he can help you. He also rebuilds shocks. Or you can order a rebuild kit it’s not hard to do. In fact Curtis has a video on you- tube.

The progressive 422 shocks won’t install due to a bolt coming out of the transmission keeping the shock from lining up with the swing arm. Anyone have experience with this?

I know that bolt has been addressed a couple times. Don't remember what the fix was. I'll try to find the thread on that. I'm sure Curtis will know too

Update.......I talked with Curtis and the remedy is, 1 go with the slim bodied shocks. Direct fit. 2. Remove the transmission stud and replace it with a flat socket head cap screw. He mentioned using a heli coil but I found a 7/16-14 bolt that will be perfect. Also, you need to bevel the metal tab to allow the bolt to countersink and flush mount allowing enough room for the shock to mount. I chose option 2. In the process of beveling the steel to allow for the flush mount.
