Not sure if you still need an answer on this but mine fit with out issue. I still have my hydro set up hanging on the wall in the shop from when I parted the sportster out. I’m anxious To hear how those shocks work for you. I use to run them on an old rock crawler I had. They were popular for those of us who didn’t want to drop thousands on coil over set ups. We ended up running limit straps to keep them from unloading. I run one strap in the middle so as to keep full travel articulation but limit full axle droop.
