Burly or progressive shocks

Has anyone installed 10.5" or 11" shocks on the street? I'm looking to do it and can't find any that specifically fit. If you were able to do it what brand and model number did you use and did it bolt right up or did you need new bushings of bolts. Thanks!

Thanks that's great. I did hear that but then I heard things about bolts and bushings not fitting?

I had ordered the Burley 10.5" from Amazon but it got mucked around, so I got the Progressives from Rollies in Brisbane

Can anyone remind me of the original shock length? I'd like to go in the opposite direction and add at least an inch to the ride height for better clearance in the corners.
