Icon 2.5 C/Os + King 14x700 Springs
 
Has anyone tried this set up with a bumper to compensate for it's weight? Icon told me to go this route....I have an ARB with winch....

I know JLink, josh, upgraded his icons with a higher spring rate spring... pm him or check his build

What is the spring rate the icons come with? I've been thinking of doing this so I can take some of the preload off the coils and still keep the height.

Slimwood Shady 03-27-2012 06:43 PM

The original rate is 650....the 700 lb ones are only $93 each from DSM. This is what Icon told me to do...

Also check out poly performance for the springs. They have both king and eibach springs for a decent price

Slimwood Shady 03-27-2012 06:53 PM

Icon recommended Eibach, but DSM said they discontinued them:pout:

I was in the same boat. My icons have a ton of preload but a 700lb spring would be way too much for just an ARB. Idk what to do haha

Bumper with winch....the shipping weight is like 350lbs :eek: has to be at least 250lbs

GreenTaco28 03-27-2012 07:00 PM

My ARB is around 85 lbs and icon said their coil would easily handle it. Don't the icons use a 13'' coil tho?

Slimwood Shady 03-27-2012 07:04 PM

That is what I heard. But Icon said to get the 14...

Joo has 1st Gen:spy:

GreenTaco28 03-27-2012 07:09 PM

Weird. Yes I do haha

jespi11 03-27-2012 07:09 PM

The king and eibach coils are only offered in a 12 or 14" coil.... No 13

:confused: I called separate times and this is what was told to me 2 times, by 2 different people...

GreenTaco28 03-27-2012 07:17 PM

They said they will get back to me 3 times lol they were supposed to call today at noon when i talked to them this morning but that never happened. Guess I'll call again tomorrow.

Slimwood Shady 03-27-2012 07:22 PM

It might be because you have a 1st gen...:confused:

jespi11 03-27-2012 07:32 PM

I have a 1st gen as well and didnt have any problem getting the info I needed. I spoke with them earlier this morning and they told me the coils I would need. I'm just a little hesitant on getting the 700# coil because I only have the stock bumper on
