Thanks for the help, I found the problem. One shock rod was bent enough that it wouldn't work. There was no fluid leakage so I bent it back in place and it seems to work. Good enough anyway until I get the new ones ordered from progressive.
I tried the search and couldn't find the answer to this question. The rear shocks on my bike seem really stiff. I weigh 170 lbs and can hardly move them by bouncing on them. Are these shocks toast? Does anyone know a source for new ones? What is the result of moving the circlip to compress the spring?
