yeah those icons are looking better and better. they make a uca but I think I should go with camburg or total chaos. I don't get off road much at all so I guess you can call this a mall queen lift. I am hoping to change that once I get a chance to meet a few of you at the next SD meet. I also like that fabtech performance 6 inch lift but Its going to be a while till I can afford new rims and tires so rather than look like a tard with a 6 inch lift and stock rims and tires I am going to go the 3 inch route.

I would love to hear someone who has the new toyotec coilovers chime in.

I know I saw someone with the icon setup on the forum hopefully they see this and give their experience.

Edit: no offense to any one with a 6 inch lift and stock wheels.

I just installed my Icon C/Os with TC UCAs last week. Good looking setup and pretty much keeps the factory ride. I would definately recommend them.

I got my kings and Downsouthmotorsports.com

If you have the money, go with the full leaf pack for the rear.

Nothing for the rear yet but the front does not look higher than the rear at all. Im gonna get a rear block for it tho. Its only a 2.5" Coilover lift which should be plenty to fit my 285s I hope.
