lowering the rear 1.5"?

I read on here a long time ago when I first got my Fury about someone drilling a hole just above where the bottom mount shock hole is to lower the bike 1.5" Has anyone else done this or do you guys have a link to the old thread? I've tried the search and still can't find it.

+1.....MFR did mine plus the T-Mod and it lowered my bike 3 inches. Also adjusting the dampner made a BIG DIFFERENCE in the ride of my bike. Hope this helps.

Question

What is the height range between the lowest and highest settings on the stock shock?
