Progressive 422 Series Adjustable RAP Shocks
Shocks hidden under the frame make common adjustments difficult on the Softail chassis. Not anymore! RAP (Remote Adjustable Preload) combines high performance shocks with a remote preload adjuster. Conveniently located behind the left passenger peg, the RAP system allows for easy tuning of the shocks to account for changing loads or the addition of a passenger.
Sold in pairs for machines originally equipped with two shocks
2" of ride height adjustment
High pressure gas charged monotube for consistent damping performance

Questions & Answers
Hello i accidentally ordered the heavy duty shocks instead of the standard style, i weight 185 and my wife about the same. should i have purchased the Standard or are the heavy Duty shocks okay?
It really depends on how much two-up riding it is that you do. Generally speaking, if you ride two-up and/or with a full load of luggage more than 50% of the time, then yes - the heavy-duty shocks would be ideal for your needs. Otherwise, your set up is going to be over-sprung. It'll certainly ride better than OEM, but as with all suspension matters, a properly sprung bike makes a huge difference.
do you have black?
Progressive's 422 series shocks are only available with a chrome finish.
does one or both shocks adjust? Pic only shows one cable or hose connected to one shock
How does that work connected to only one shock?
The Remote Adjustable Preload (RAP) function is there to fine-tune ride height once you've got your baseline ride height properly set. With careful tuning, you can get the shocks set up so that, depending on whether or not you're riding with a passenger - you can simply turn the RAP's knob a few times to get the proper ride height. You can do this since the shock that doesn't have the remote adjuster attached can also be adjust for preload using the included preload adjustment tool. In the instance you're unable to get proper ride height with the RAP alone during initial setup, then you will need to use the preload wrench to get it in range.
For reference, it's actually not unusual to find modern suspension components with a preload adjustment on one side only. For those bikes, you often need to change out the springs in order to get the proper ride height. This goes for forks as well. While it's not as common on cruisers, over the last four or five years, it's become increasingly common on sportbikes and offroad bikes, both - MX and enduro machines. What's nice about the Progressive 422 shocks is that, since the non-remote adjustable side can also be adjusted for preload, you don't need to change out springs in order to get the right ride height.
