I saw once where stupid mentioned something about SAW countersteer r shocks...anyone provide more info on those?

Icon actually makes a 2" shock with or with out remote res. Icon part # 56507 and 5607R for res. I spoke at lengths with Jeremy at icon about it. These are specifically for the second gen 5 lug.

I ordered 6 lug shocks and found they were too long. Also the 5 lug uses 2 different lenght shocks(factory) in the rear but Jeremy says the icon shocks are equal legth but, the length they built them will not cause issue.

You have to ask the vendor to get in touch with icon to order these shocka.

I didn't end up buying a set because i changed directions for the rear of mine, so i cant comment on actual fitment.

Nice. Might have to check those out.

Give a big thanks to Anthony250 in this thread also, been PMing back and forth, I've had a lot of questions about the coilovers and he's been more than glad to help me out, props to that guy!

Chris, SAW makes a smooth body reservoir shock that can fit in the rear. They aren't called the Countersteer Rs because that's actually the name of my old wheels, haha. I have to point out that Anthony250 definitely knows his stuff about shocks so you're getting some good advice. Can't wait too see it done!

I cleaned em' up a little bit today. Wire wheeled all that gunk off the shock threads/bodies.

A call to SAW and ICON seem to be in the near future.

The CS-Rs/wheels thing...don't know how I missed that. Makes me feel full retard on that one.
