These were a little rough in the back. The ICONS are a little rough on the highway too, they have since settled in. They have broken in now and seem OK. If I was to do it all again, I would go Bilstein. ICONs are made for off-road, I drive on highway 99% of the time.
Fox maybe OK in the front, but I have never run them on a 150. The shocks above were 2.5" shafts. Too much unless you off-road all the time.
Just curious if you did your install? I was looking at the Bilstein setup but am thinking now fox 2.0 due to the pre-assembled front struts. I too was going for 1.75 or 1.5” setting for front. I am planning on an Add-a-lead for
The rear which should settle to 1.5” of lift. I tow heavy and haul fairly frequently and want to keep factory rake/stance.
Anyone have any thoughts? Or should I just upgrade to an F-250 lol

Should i have any concerns about spring rates ? from everything i could find online they are somewhere around 600 lb/in
I did a-lot of research about our...

My Icon Adjustable coilovers were installed today. I was very disappointed in the Bilstein 5100 setup that I had previously installed. The truck dipped swayed and rolled all over with the Bilsteins. This coilover setup makes the truck handle like a dream. No lateral movement in curves. corners...
