progressive aal, icon or wheelers

So ive decided to ditch my 2" aal for a progressive aal but I cant decide who I want to buy it from. Ive heard the icons rust easily but the wheelers pack squeaks a lot and it is $50 less. I just want a better ride out of my rear end so im sure I will be happy with either but I need help deciding between the two.

I'm rocking the icon 3 leaf aal paired with the tsb 4 leaf pack and it's great! I'd suggested either 3 leaf aal over a single leaf btw...

Are you guys running with or without the overload spring? I haul a dirt bike and gear every week totaling about 300lbs. I want the smoothest ride possible so if I can do without the OL spring and still carry some weight thats the route I want to take.

Just has the wheeler's 3-leaf hd pack installed. No squeaking and the backend feels really nice. I left the overload spring in.

How does the ride compare to stock with the HD springs?

I think it rides very nice compared to the stock springs. I also had new 5100s installed all around. The combination of the two make for a nice ride. It is slightly more stiff than the stock suspension but not overly so.
