ive got a 2004 883 custom that needs new shocks. i already know what i want, just dont know what length. im goin with the progressive 412 heavy duty shocks. it says on the progressive website that it came with 11.5" shocks, but i was told that at the car lot that the previous owner lowered it. i measured the shocks when on jiffy stand and they measure 10.5" center to center.

so the question is, how do i know its been lowered? i have a factory stock 04 or comparable 883 custom to compare mine to. how much do springs sag with weight? im thinkin 11" shocks, would that hurt it if the bike is at factory ride height?
