Go with a Progressive 412 series in the rear. It dropped mine about 2 or 2 1/2 inches. The ride is a bit stiffer (fells like your part of the bike) but, the handleing isn't too badly compromised. just get used to scrapping the pegs before you go on a twisty road.
What is the length of Progressive shock, 11.5"? Do you have parts number handy?
Stock Rear Shock Length is 12.5".
Progressive has the 412's in 12" and 11.5" lengths.
The 11.5" Progressive 412 part number is 412-4254C
The Front Lowering Kit is 10-1564 and can lower the front 1 or 2 inches.
I will be installing this on a 2005 America this weekend and plan to take extensive measurements and pictures during the process.
I will first replace the rear shocks with the 11.5" 412's get an accurate measurement of just how much lower (I'm going to use seat height) the bike sits. Then decide if I will lower the front 1 or 2 inches.
