I put 444s and monotubes on my bike ('12 FLHTK) back in November, and can only say that it is a different bike altogether.
I specifically went with HD springs since I ride with the wife quite a bit, and when solo I like the extra firmness. That extra stiffness is not for all, to be sure, but it works well for me.

The 944-4020UT is the HD which came out from Progressive well before the -4002 which has the lighter spring for lighter people/ loads. I don't run anywhere near full weight, probably nearly 200lbs less than max. I have the "HD" version (944-4020UT) and don't find them to be over sprung at all. I have not tested or even ridden a bike with the -4002 version yet.

Does the pre-load adjustment need to be changed when switching from 1 to 2 riders?

Pretty standard no matter what rear shocks you run.
