Going from Bilstein 5100's to Icon Coilovers, is it worth it??

I have an opportunity to buy a used set of Icon coilovers for $600.00...Currently I have 5100's up front and am happy with them, is the Icon night and day superior?

Thanks in advance

What do you use your truck for? Off road or daily driver?

F*** Ya! They're digressive like the 5100's so they feel similar but steps above! Have them set at 1.5" lift similar to the 5100's and they'll ride smooth as hell! x2 on the rebuild though!
