What rear shocks should I fit on nightster

This may have been discussed before, searched but couldn't find answer.

I want to fit new rear shocks on my Nightster for 2 up riding, are the ones sold by harley recomended? I am on a budget.

Also are they easy to change?

You realize you're going to need some rear pegs and mounts as well, right?

As for the shocks, if it were me I'd go with the H-D shocks, especially if the bike is still under warranty.

I recommend Progessive as well. I've had them on other bikes and have been very pleased with them. I will be getting the Black 412's 11.5 inch HD the near future. Somewhat pricey, but well worth every penny. JP Cycles also has some shocks made by Progessive but at less cost.
