Icons current travel for this shock is 7", with the spacer removed I pick up another inch and with the TC LCA/UCA combo I will pick up another inch.
9" of travel isnt to bad for a DB lift with stock length LCAs! Sure its not LT, but it will do....


They remove a spacer inside the shock assembly that prevents the shock from over extending, you gain 1" of shock travel which equals more than 1" of wheel travel, but you should run straps

Parts list is the 1st post, its only chaged a little. Im not doing the ubolt flip and the ICON coils will be extended travel. Do you really think I will need straps up front Patrick? I haven't spoke to SDHQ, ive been doing the research with Total Chaos and ICON on my own.
Im also fairly certain I will have SDHQ do the labor now and take it to Network for the alignment.
How many inches of wheel travel must I have before needing straps? What does it cost?

It's just to protect your coilovers from over extending, which in your application isnt a big deal. they are cheap anyways if you do feel the need for it but i wouldnt worry about it

Haha, which one is it? You suggest to run, then dont. Is it plausible that I can overextend with this application? I will see what SDHQ has to say regardless but since you raised alarm id like to know more.

I didn't mean "you" specifically!

For your application and how your going to wheel the truck I don't see a need for you to strap it

no point to a flip and it creates another purchase for bump stops. Sure it protects the thread on the ubolt but they are cheap to replace if damaged. Im saving the 100$ and will end up putting it towards armor.

There is no travel gained with a flip, the pumpkin is still the most likely to take the hit.

I was confused when you said "but you should run straps" in response to my post. My bad

With the 6" lift and no blocks in the rear, the tiny factory bump stop height is useless...

yessir i learned that lesson the hard way. The spacer is getting tossed but i was just curious if the OP is trying to gain more height out of his DB lift or just more travel or both. Or if he is just trying to stick with the 6 inch height and reinforce the weak PC stage 1 lift.

No more height, just travel & strength

Gotcha! thanks for the clerification (my addiction to an inch or 2 more of height is killing me hahaha) But i will be removing that damn spacer very soon and messing with the C/o height to get exactly what i want with plenty of travel as well. Look forward to seeing ur rig all finished so i can compare notes

Its not that at all PhillyD! It would be different if I had my own garage, my own tools or even my brother around. He is has been a master mechanic for 20 years and has everything (including air tools). But unfortunately, he isnt in AZ anymore and I would have to rely on Jason Ks garage, tools and a few of you guys to spend a day wrenching in 120 degree heat. That is a lot to ask of you all but I sincerely appreciate everyone who jumped up and offered help. Due to the amount of work needed, I'm trusting SDHQ and Its the right decision.
