Here is why I'm confussed .
Quote directions.
(The end with the single hole points to the rear of the motorcycle and attaches to the frame ,the end with the 3 holes points forward.)
The down possition is a shock mount but the shock mounts to the frame. and the up is the swingarm.
If they would of said up or down it would be simple.

3 holes go on bottom or front however it is written. Single on top or back.

Do these drop the bike as a whole or just the rear end?
Just the back to do the front to you would half to replace the springs inside of the forks.

Cool let us know. I'm in the same direction.. Picking up the my Stryker from 1st service and 250 rear install..looking forward in dropinng in 2" with the pcs links
I opened a new thread on this Petey every thing worked out good with minual work kinda surprised how easy it was, there has been a lot of disscussion on this.
Basicly just trim the rear of the frame about 3 inches with fender off left tire on ,trimming of lower belt guard for tire and everything else was good, remember I dont have the stock duck taillight that would make problems. It handles much better with the lower stanch or rake to the front again.
