i would think performance wise they would be the same since they are set up to utilize the same kit. just depends on looks and price i guess. but i see alot more people go with the icons

Sway-A-Way = Progressive dampening

that was with the older model SAWs .... and they even offered replacment on parts that rusted if im not mistaken. i have SAW on my mini and they havent rusted and held up good. another pro for me was that they are local( they were also the only option when i got my kit)

Kings ftw but they dont fit i guess?

King makes shocks that are not listed. They will make whatever you want. The shocks I have are not listed anywhere. They are complete custom length built specific for the application

only the new 2.5" icon rear shocks... the 2.0 design is the old donahoe racing shock which was a rebadged edelbrock shock... def not worth the $400 price tag

this depends what are you looking for?

personally i would not go with the AAL. unless you go with the 3 leaf AAL, and still i wouldnt, nut up, get the whole leaf pack. your ride will be MUCH better.


so this is what i think you should get

Icon UCA
Icon Coilover
All Pro leafpack/deaver leafpack
Icon 2.5 rear shocks.


then personally in the front i would add some spider trax spacers



EDIT: i didnt notice this is a 5 lugger, i dont know shit about a 5 lug.

your options for a 5 lug a VERY limited... this is about the best you can go with out going long travel. it's a great set up, i've seen a dude hauls ass with this kit

TC upper arm and either Icon or SAW coilover... resi optional

My shocks were the same cost as any other 8" coilover they make. They have to make them form scratch anyway so they dont charge extra just because you change dimensions a little. With DSM's discount they were actually less than any other manufactures shock and mine are complete custom valving and dimensions. King is well... King for a reason
