Huge upgrade in my opinion. That is for the Icons though. Don't have first hand experience for the LRs.

I've been wheelin' with the same guys for the last few months. One particular area we go, we're bajaing through a dry river bed. Typically I'm falling off the pack, white knuckling the whole time just trying to keep the truck pointed in the right direction. This past run, was hanging with them and having fun at it.

Other thing I noticed was during the rock crawling, didn't lose traction on the same obstacles like I have in the past. Figured I was seeing the advantage of getting that little extra droop when I was flexing hard.

I'm still on a high how the truck is handling off-road now. Even one of my friends noted how it felt smoother on pavement.
Maybe somebody will pipe in with their LR experience.

I've got LRs and spring contact. The BJ contacts enough to wear a hole in the BJ boot. Replaced the boots once, and while doing so discovered LR puts maybe a marble-sized dab of grease in there -- so I stuffed if full of RedLine (which means I now have RedLine grease all over my upper BJ ).
Icon is in the future, but it's gotta wait until I get fully armored first.

thats good to know. I almost went the LR UCA route, but I figured I might as well shell out the extra $150 or so for a uniball UCA. Glad I did.

All four brands (camburg, icon, all pro, total chaos) of UCAs will be more than sufficient for the average user. I couldn't see anyone having a legitimate complaint as far as quality or performance.

I chose the APs because they were the cheapest and offered the same features as the rest. Their build quality seems flawless, welds look great, made of chromoly like the rest, the powdercoating is nice, grease zerks and poly bushing and they use FK uniballs, which are known to be very good. Plus their site says they are TIG not MIG welded, so that's a plus. Not sure what the competition uses.

I couldn't see paying another $200 for icons or total chaos arms when they are pretty much the same thing, minus the bling bling.

The Camburg arms are priced the same as the APs. So both are fine choices IMO

Yar, I only went with Icon because I might go full Icon MT setup at some time. I'm all OCD like that. The uniball setup is nice because it doesn't have the huge stud jutting out on top like others do but that is more cosmetic.

One thing I will warn on the Icons is the ABS sensor wire bracket studs should be torqued no more than 6lb/ft. Don't ask how I know...

Hm ok. I went with 883s with no top plate. Hopefully I won't have issues.

Well I've probably put about 1000 miles on them so far. No weight up front. They've settled nicely but I was having some weird noise when going over some larger bumps. As the suspension cycles down. I looked at the coils yesterday and I did notice some chipped paint on them where yours are rubbing. So I might have the same issue. Ill keep an eye on it and see what happens

Other than that, they ride great. Definitely stiff but I like them. I recently started driving with 30psi instead of 40 in my tires and that makes a huge difference as well. Might cause some uneven wear, but we'll see.
