    Writing this review previous to heading out to ship these shocks back to amazon. They came very quick and look ok (see other reviews about the plastic covers and overspray flaking off). I got excited to irrevocably have them in my hands and realize they came without the clips to secure the springs! Not sure how that got left out but now its back to amazon they go so I can wait even longer… I thought for the price these were the best out there but they may not be much surpass than the chinese ones for half the price.

    Edit: So I got the exchange from Amazon which was very quick and painless, I will give them that. Went from a 1 star to 3.

    When the shocks arrived one of the top mounts was sparingly painted black while the other was just fine, also one of the top rubber mounts was either crushed or defective and most of the rubber had black paint flaking off of them from careless overspray.

    These come with a plastic cap that fits over the spring, they’re cheap and look like it. I didn’t install it.

    These were for a 75 CB 750 scheme I am working on and I wasn’t impressed at all. The set comes with extra washers to use in the gap of the lower clevis mounts because the shock opening was too wide. They’re mounted up after a trip to the hardware store to get thicker washers to replace the cheap ones they provide, but the quality of these things is just not very excellent at all.

    TL;DR Overspray on rubber components, missing paint and didn’t fit correctly.

    I have a 73 cb 500 and got these with the shocks and felt like the difference between a go-kart and Cadillac. The same time I upgraded the shocks and springs I rebuilt the forks too. I’m very pleased with these and would recommend them to others
