Hi all. I put a Springer seat on my rebel, and the front sits too low, causing me to slide forward. Super uncomfortable. Any ideas on how to un-ghettofi this setup? Currently I've just stacked a bunch of washers to raise the seat in the front (pic attached).

Since you kept the shocks, the seat springs really aren't needed.

My springs are already pretty low. You think I could get lower with the kind you linked? Spring height attached.
Yes. I think you can get lower with different springs. As Flitecontrol said, the shocks will do most of the work. I have a seat like yours on my bike. Love the look - hate the hard seat. The springs add almost nothing to the comfort of the ride. I'm going to change the seat when I get some time which probably means never.
