Help Before I order...

I'm going to be buying Progressive front springs and Progressive rear shock with spring this Friday and a 240 Rear Tire soon to follow, but I need some help making a decision on which shock to get.
The two options are:
Standard and 1" inch lowered

I would love to get the one inch lower since the 240 makes the bike set even higher but my concern is because my wife and I are big people and I'm worried about the squat of the bike. Just to give you a idea, I'm 6'3" #295, wife would kick my ass if I tried to elaborate on her :nod: ... . I know the progressive spring pushes back against tension but will it be enough?

So I would like anyone with the 240/250 and spring to chime in and give your experiences with passenger, luggage, etc;. I got 11Stryker's input but he is a skinny dude, lol.

Pulled the trigger and ordered 465-1177 1" Lowered Progressive Rear Shock/Spring and 11-1126 Progressive Front Springs... $428 from Phat Performance...
Nice! You will like the 1" rear. Now ya got me thinking more about getting the front springs. Let me know what is required to install the fronts Bud.
Will do, parts won't be here for a couple weeks though. Talked to Phatperformance tonight because the rear is out of stock. Progressive isn't due to ship until March 2.
Been looking for a good manual and researching the install a bit. Found this video
$58 for the fronts was the best price and the rear was only $369 + free shipping.
