I have a 1982 gl500I. question: If I install a 10 1/2" monoshock, will it drop the rear 1" ? Stock shock length is
11" I think.
Thanks.

The answer is it depends. How do the springs of the two shocks compare?
This page in the factory service manual shows the relationship between spring compression and wheel travel. It can help you figure out how the change in shock length will affect ride height. HTH
