Default Dropping cruiser

wanting to drop the cruiser a bit, more to level it out than to get low. But i really dont know what size to get. was hoping people could post pictures and tell me what springs they used to get it to that level and maybe i can decide

They'll do it for you? or they simple carry different sizes?

well, i wont even let them change my oil,
but maybe they will do it,,
its mostly a do it your self type item,,
and there is only one size to drop,
i rode around with thouse in my 2001 for allmost a year,
before there was any drop springs you could even buy,
just make sure your not hitting your bump stops thats a real weird ride,

The bump stops on the rear are supposed to chopped at least one layer if you add the lowering springs. Here's mine cut with the top/bottom (depending on which way you look at it) cut off.

Haha!! I looked and looked but was also amazed I ain't got one. I will within a couple days but it's night now. I might be able to get one tomorrow, though. I'll let you know.
