How to change the rear shocks on a 2008 flhrse?

Raise the rear wheel off the ground and then with a no loss air pump apply more pressure to force any oil down the lines into the shocks, then release all air pressure and press the air line fitting collar in and disconnect the lines. THEN remove the upper shock mounting bolt and lockwasher and flat washer and then remove the lower shock mounting bolt and lockwasher and flat washer and remove the shock absorber assembly from the motorcycle. BUT do not lay it down as the oil will leak out and cannot be replaced so the shock would then be garbage. You could remove the air line fitting and plug the hole with a 1/8 NPT thread plug if the shock is to be retained and stored or etc.

I added air shocks to my 1995 lincoln town car because the air suspension bags died. what pressure should they take and do they lose air so you have to add air?

The Stock Air Bags self Leveled, your new System should have come with PAperwork or is there a Air Nozzle that you have to fill? The Bags should come with a Pressure Window for a Firmer Ride or Softer Ride.

I need to know the proper air pressure for my air shocks for a 275 lbs man

The Service manual changed in 08 for proper air pressure in rear shocks. Before 08 it was 35-45 PSI, now its 45-55 PSI, For a man your size (our size) I would put it about 50 or even 48 somewhere around there. It will leave you some more if you carry a passenger, or a heavy load.

2008 rear shock won't dial in to a firm ride as it use to. It only goes up and down freely with weight and not just at impact. what needs to be done?

I would highly suggest you take the bike and shock into your local bike shop to have the diagnosis the problem. Other than suggesting checking the air pressure if your shock has an air valve, there are far too many potential problems to go through in this format.

From your description it sounds like a shock with no air pressure, but...

Proper air pressure for rear shocks

Um you sure you pumped it up to 150lbs? If you did, you may have already blown the seals in the shocks. I don't believe they were designed for more than 30lbs. I weigh 300 myself and set my air shocks at 15lbs.

Install rear shocks

With motorcycle raised so tire is just touching the supporting surface apply two or three drops of LOCTITE MEDIUM STRENGTH THREADLOCKER 243 (blue) to the threads of each mounting bolt then install the lower shock mounting bolt, lockwasher and flat
washer and tighten to 35-40 ft-lbs (47.5-54.2 Nm) and then install the upper shock mounting bolt, lockwasher and flat
washer and tighten to 35-40 ft-lbs (47.5-54.2 Nm). THEN insert the air tube into the air tube fitting until it bottoms, gently tug on the tube to verify that it is locked in place and then with a special no pressure loss pump available from H-D properly pressurize the rear air suspension system and check for leaks.

The Road King shocks are air adjustable via an air valve located on the right side of the bike just above the rear tire. Your Harley Davidson owner's manual will tell you what the shocks should be pressurized to depending upon the load on your bike (for instance - if you'll be carrying a passenger - the pressure should be a bit higher than it would be if you were riding solo). Don't even attempt to read the pressure unless you have the specialized hand pump that is used to pressurize the shocks. You can purchase this from Harley Davidson or via a third party online. The valve is a typical bicycle / auto air valve - but ... DO NOT attempt to pressurize it with anything but the specialized hand pump. Using anything else will risk over pressurization of your shocks and that's not good. The shocks hold a very small volume of air at relatively low pressure levels - so the hand pump is a must have.
