Default Difference between low rider/super glide

What is the suspension difference between a 2009 low rider and a 2010-11-12 super glide custom?

From what I found the low rider has shorter rear shocks? How much rear/ front travel between the two?

I've got one of each , 02 Glide and 05 L/R . The L/R has a different rake/trail so the cornering is and handling is different than the Superglide. Even the rear shocks are shorter I think the spring rate makes up for shorter travel. The front seems stiffer than the Superglide.
