Also Progressive Suspensions...air tail..Found... HERE

So much more than a lowering kit. The Airtail® suspension system was designed to be the smoothest riding, best performing suspension system for your Softail™ chassis. Made with Progressive Suspension’s highest quality custom tuned damper, precision machined components, and show-chrome finished covers, the Airtail® suspension system is the perfect blend of engineering excellence and industrial artistry.

The Airtail® system is actually a pair of two individual shocks, a coil and air shock, working together to give you the ideal ride. The Coil Shock is your primary spring and supports the bike while providing support against bottom-out.

The Air Shock’s main air chamber is divided into a positive air spring and negative air spring. The positive air spring gives you additional progressive spring force that also helps to resist bottom-out. Using our optional on-board compressor, the negative air spring can be pressurized to pump the length of your shock down, which lowers your bike. Your maximum ride height is regained by bleeding the air out of the negative air spring via an on-board purge. The entire Airtail® system consists of a Coil Shock, a dual chamber Air Shock, an optional on-board compressor, all necessary controls, lines, and fittings
