What kind of Icons can replace the rear fabtech shocks on a 6in lift. 06 Toyota Tacoma SR5. I have looked everywhere and I can't find anything! All there is is 2" replacements. Will this work? Thank you!

so what did you do to yours then? it looks like you've got some good flex from a couple of your pictures.
this is my plan so far...
front im doing icon coil overs. these can replace the fabtech or procomp 6"-7" spacers.
back I have no idea what to do! haha
or is this dumb and I should just take the lift off and do something else?
