Question - Icon 3 inch lift rocks when stopping.

So I just had a 3 inch Icon lift installed with the icon leaf pack and the Icon tubular UCAs. Everything looks well and good and the ride is great, way better than stock suspension.

When I stop the truck rocks back and forth a bit. In detail when driving it has a nice roll over big bumps and creases in the road. Very smooth when driving around and cornering as well.

When I stop though the truck kind of bounces a small bit. I mean a small bit but it is noticeable.

Is this normal?

Maybe you're stopping too hard? Mine isn't noticeable at all!

the leaf pack will make it rock slightly (axle wrap) it's normal

Well from what I have read axle wrap is the thud from your weekend springs. My springs are brand new and I have the 3 leaf Icon pack added to my stock pack without the overload spring.

Feel free to correct if I am wrong here.


This is not jarring or anything of the sort. It is just a very fluid rocking back and forth when stopping.

If I try I can stop slow and softly enough to where it does not happen at all.

Let me know if there are any more ideas.

This does not feel like a major issue, I just want to make sure that everything is proper before a tire falls off or something crazy.

HAHA

That is a sign of soft valving... more damping means stiffer ride. Do you really want to make that trade?

Good to go

So i realized that it was all normal. The rocking stopped when I am stopping.

You are right about not sacrificing the quality of the ride. It is like butter ride now so I would not change a thing.

Thanks for your posts.
