The Icon's I have are smother only if I go off road at higher speeds other wise they are a lot bumpier on the street (set at 2-2.5" lift-the way they are set at the manufacture).
I bought it for more then one reason.
#1- I needed a stronger spring to support my new Relentless bumper,
#2-I need something that I can adjust so I can fit 285's
#3- I tought that they would last me at least 4-5 years with out problems.
#4 -They roll a lot less on turns- due to heavier, stronger springs.
Smooth is a very personal definition. What may be smoth for me,,, could be a horse wagon for you.
All I can tell you is that,,, With the Icon's set at 1.5" and 285' the truck looks good- the way I like it but -on the road, highway, in my eyes will never be as smoth as the oem. Bigger tires and heavier springs make you pay a price. You can buy aftermarket and set them at 0" but they will not be as smooth as oem because they have heavier springs,, made to take a bumper and (or) winch.
This is my point but some guys may see this differently. Good luck with your choice.
