87 aspencade gutted the rear air suspension, not willing to rebuild any part of it. Put Honda shadow rear shocks on and now I have a really big shadow ... the weight just blew out those shocks.
I’m stingy and don’t want to spend a fortune on these progressive rear shocks everyone swears by.
Any cheap alternatives that are beefy enough to handle the weight ? I’m not rebuilding the stock shocks... no time.., just need a plug and play.
