any harley dealership or reputable bike shops that carry harley parts. you will need the bushings and bolts and fluid also. It doesnt pay to just replace the seals. While you are there change it all. It is inexpensive. you also need the correct tools to seat the seals without damaging them. If you do not have the tools or the knowlege it is best to bring the bike to someone that knows what they are doing.

Softail shocks are under the transmission. They sit horizontally and are inline with the chassis. Unlike the shocks on all other Harleys, when you hit a bump on a Softail, the shocks get longer instead of shorter.

The softail has a swing arm with a shock system. Other models have two shocks mounted outside on pins.

The drain plug is located between the shocks.

Look under the bike between the shocks.

If it's a swingarm-type model use longer shocks, if it's a Softail use shorter shocks. Or you can use height-adjustable air shocks on any Harley with a rear suspension.

Get the original replacement shocks from the dealer/mopar, everything else will be either too stiff or too soft.

The dampening is usually almost completely provided by the shock absorbers. Some can be repaired or recharged if they are gas shocks, but if the seals are failing, or the shock absorbers are worn, they will probably need replacement.

User Avatar

The cost of the shocks is going to be anywhere from $55 to $85 each. If a professional is doing the replacement, there will also be a labor charge from them for their time and knowledge. If doing the replacement oneself, please refer to a manual on the proper way to replace the shocks to prevent unintentional damage to the vehicle.

Between the two shocks, towards rear. The oil, primary, and transmission plug are in the same general area.

do you have the schematics for a '98 softail starter?? do you have the schematics for a '98 softail starter??

Right side, down where the frame and swing arm meet there will be a hose clamped near the shocks. Usually a silver metal plug with a worm drive clamp

User Avatar

Yes you should, and yes it does matter. If you don't keep them clean you'll shorten the life of the seals, which can let dirt into the shocks, which can damage them.

Easy: 1) Disconnect the air hose clips. 2) Unbolt the bottoms of the shocks. 3) Unbolt the tops of the shocks 4) Install new shocks 5) When installing the hoses to the new shocks, make sure the seals are clean and lubricate them lightly with a little silicone. Now, replacing the pressure hoses, that is a much harder job.

In order to change the front shocks, you will need a ratchet and socket kit. You will also need some replacement shock absorbers.

Have a friend drive behind closely and watch for wheel bouncing.

2007 Was the last year of the Softail standard. 2008 they still made Softail Customs and the like, but not Standard. So.. NO, there is no such thing as a "wheel from a 2008 Softail standard"

Contact me at john.smithson@navy.com and I will email you the shock absorber removal and replacement procedures.

The seals on your windows have a leak or in need of replacement.

No there is not. The Monroe 818 air shocks are the closest that may work.
