Progressive 416

Post by DWade1990 »



I just installed a rear set on my 83 Aspencade after my original shocks puked their guts all over my garage floor. I cannot believe what an incredible difference they made in comfort and handling. The ride is just mind blowing. I can't stress enough what a drastic improvement these new shocks are.

Anybody that is on the fence, just pull the trigger and buy the damn shocks. I know they're not cheap, but the first trip out of the driveway will make it all worth it.

Now I just need to put the new front springs in, because they're very obviously not up to par with the back of the bike.

Ya good to be back home. That stretch in Cleveland was really tough.
