Easy to tell. Measure shock length, also mounts must be same. Such as eye on each end or clevis.

I'm trying to find the PSI in rear shock for 2001 HD FLH

rear shocks recomended pressure is 10 psi for rider weight up to 150 lbs for each 50 lbs extra you can add 1.5 psi extra. do not use an air compressor to air up your shocks, if you do you might blow out the seals you need a little hand pump Harley sells a real nice one.

Lowering FLHTCUI

I lowered my 06 Street Glide 1 1/4" in the rear, using a bolt on, adjustable lowering kit that I purchased on Ebay. $100.00, including shipping. Took less than 30 minutes to install, and can be returned to stock, in about the same amount of time. It lowers Touring bikes either 1 1/4", or 2 1/2". If you ride 2-up, you'll have to keep some more air pressure in the rear shocks, to prevent bottoming. The SG shocks are 12" stock. The FLHTC/U has 13" shocks stock. The brand of lowering kit is R.U.B. Excellent quality, quick delivery. Hope this helps.

Air in rear shocks

Depending on your weight and if you carry a passenger as to the air pressure. I normally run about 14 but 24 if riding 2 up.
Recommended pressures:
up to 150 lbs- 0
each addition 25 rider pounds > 150 lbs add 1.0 lbs
each additional passenger pounds > 150 lbs add 1.5 lbs
each additional 10 lbs of laggage add 3.0 lbs
Max Pressure 35 psi
