Hey guys. Just installed my Icon coilovers today and they ride absolutely amazing. I'll have some bilstein 5100's on the for sale forum soon. I did have one unfortunate mishap while installing them. I was having trouble getting one of the shocks in place and so I unscrewed the total chaos uniball to lift the upper control arm. Possibly because I did not use anti seize in the first place when I installed it, the threads on the end of the bolt became all gauled up. I just about shit myself thinking by truck would be rendered useless until I found a new bolt. Fortunately it occured to that there was still enough useable thread if I ground off the mangled threads towards the bottom. Worked great although I should still find another bolt just in case.
While I was installing the Icons I noticed something strange. I noticed that my 5100s were the same length as my extended travel Icon coilovers. You might say well than they're not the extended travel Icons, but they must be because the uniball is at its lowest limit with both shocks. Any more droop and the ball will bind. Does this mean 5100s are extended travel?? Can't be but I swear to you I measured them both side by side. What the heck is that about?
For those that are looking for another Icon testimonial... Yes they are amazing!
