I wasn't looking into adjusting my shocks on my 85 Honda Shadow VT700. I noticed mine are not oem (at least not 85 vt700). They are also not like any I have found online. They are adjustable, but it seems like only in 3 positions with drastic changes between each adjustment. Can anyone help identify these? I tried to get the best pictures I can. Also, I was looking to adjust the rear end a little closer to the ground, yet stiffen up the bike a little. Will adjust the shocks lower increase or decrease stiffness? Thank you all in advance.

On the oem parts page for a 85 Honda Shadow VT700, only the lower eyelet on the Right shock has a bolt. The rest are nuts (acorns). Did the threaded stud pull out with the acorn nut? If so, just screw it back as a single unit. It might or might not throw the torque value a bit off.
