Valving Characteristics
A shock absorber uses different valves and springs to adjust the dampening force of that particular shock. There are three types of valving characteristics that dictate how the shock will perform. They are progressive, linear, and digressive. Progressive shocks start out soft and get stiffer quickly as the shaft speed increases. Linear shocks uniformly increase stiffness as the piston speed increases. It is similar to the progressive valving but does not make dramatic changes at higher speeds. Digressive is just the opposite of progressive. It starts out stiff, then it tapers off.

so you care more about looks than performance?

i would rethink the Kings...

but if that set on being different, then go with SAWs... not many first gens running them anymore as Icon has become the trend for tacomas lately...

no my friend its the other way around id prefer to preform better than it looks which is why im torn between my two options haha. i know that icons have seem to have taken over the tacoma community which is why the rest of my friends are telling me to get them. i dont know anyone who has ever run the race runners so i dont know that much about them

Both SAWs, and ICONs are great products. For most people, it would be hard to tell the difference in ride, when set at the same amount of lift. If you do lift the rig 2.5-3", the caster will be a little low, and the vehicle may wander at speed. To fix this, you can install some aftermarket UCAs that are designed to add caster back into your alignment.
