Brand new hand built custom 10.25" lowering shocks from MB Shocks. I called these guys up on Monday to see if they could build a set of lowering shocks for my Marauder and $199.00 and 2 days later here they are. They built them and shipped them out the same day. Can't wait to slap these on the bike on Friday! If you're looking for custom length shocks these guys seem to be the business. They made mine with a black spring instead of a chrome spring for no additional charge. They even make all black shocks.

You know i'll post them the moment it's finished. The stock length of the Marauder's shocks are pretty short at 11.25" so with a 1" reduction in shock length I only expect about a 1.5" drop. I'd really love a slammed 3" drop but that's not really possible with the short travel of the Marauder's rear. But a 1.5" drop is pretty good and the kit looks a damn sight better than the stock chrome tubes that Suzuki had the brilliant forsight to use.

3" drops look very good but the ride is changing a lot, I think the 1.5" you have will be nice without any real compromise

Yeah, I agree. I want to retain the ride of the bike.

An interesting note, I was comparing them to a picture of the Progressive Suspension 412 series that I was considering and they look to be identical. Interesting.
