they are all pretty much the same. only diff is the sprins rates can vary from brand to brand but only like a 50lb diff. the fox's and kings have a resi option if that flots your boat

youre going to get a ton of different answers


the biggest thing you have to decide is what youre going to be doing with your truck

are you just lifting it for looks...or are you going to be wheeling it...

w/ good brand CO's (icon, SAW, king, fox) your not going to have to worry about sag. if you go w/ some OME coils or bili 5100 struts then sagging could be an issue. sounds like you gonna want some super swapper tires for your bogging adventures

If I'm not mistaken all coilover shock systems can be rebuilt like SAWs, Kings or Icons.

you are correct. the only non rebuildable coilovers are the toytec and first gen all pro's. because all they are is a threaded bili shock w/ a spring and collar

what about them? are they rebuildable or have a life time warranty? only toytec offers the lifetime warranty on their CO's (i beleive) and only the fabtech dirt logics would be (the ones that look like SAW or Icon CO's but are the fabtech blue) and the toytec's... just scroll up a bit

no, beacuse the coil will be so compressed that the ride will suck and be stiff and bouncy as hell.
