Icon 2.5 Rear Resi's, Why cant I find them?

Hello all, I am a little confused here....I dont know why I cant find the New Icon Rear Resi 2.5 shocks? I heard that they announced them for our trucks (I have a 2nd Gen) and now you cant find them on their site for the tacoma, or anywhere on the internet for that matter! I have seen people on here that have them so I am wondering, where did you all get them?

Hi Brian,

Yes, we have a TW discount price on those. They'll run you $765.99/pair and we need to order them ICON is currently running about a 1.5-2 week build time. Let us know if you would like to place an order, and I'll get it into to ICON so they can get started.

Let us know if we can help you with anything else...

Thank you,
Marco @ DSM

Best way of going about it!

They're not listed on their webpage, they are on Polyperformance, but I'd order them from DSM as they'll customize them for you anyway you want them!

I havent measured my travel, but you would be well served to get extended brake lines if running them.

Chris, my main concern is running them with an alcan, deaver, or allpro 3" leaf pack. Im just not sure that my icon rear resi(the edelbrock ones) will have appropriate travel. thanks

Well I can't speak for the Alcans or Deavers, but, with the All-Pro packs they come with/recommend a 9.5"-10" shock, and will aftermarket bumpstops the Icon's being a 9.3" they should fit fine, or you could run the FJ Cruiser Shocks (re-valved).

Either way I'd just cycle your suspension to measure and that way you can be 100% positive
