Leeper Coilover Resurrection by Marco at Down South MS

If anyone needs there coilovers rebuilt here in Hawaii I recommend contacting Marco at Down South Motorsports. His communication was awesome and they did an excellent job with the rebuild. The shipping from hawaii to them and back was not as bad as i expected, about $195 total. Here's how awesome the truck rides now:

I put them back on this morning and what an unbelievable awesome smooth ride. I have a feeling the shocks were bad from when i first got them because they were nowhere this smooth and responsive when I first put them on. I had them cranked to almost three inches of lift - center of wheel hub to bottom of fender flare was 24.5" on both sides.
Since they were re-built with Icon parts I assume Icons ride like this and if so I highly recommend buying Icons's. The digressive ride on the highway is so dam smooth, and the stopping and cornering is very responsive. The truck is very confident now with it's supercharger =-)

For anyone who has a chance to buy blown Leepers for a decent price I say it's worth the rebuild. Also, when I took my coilovers off for rebuild I put my top plate spacer 3inch lift with my stock coilovers back on. Man that ride was so bouncy and it would roll pretty bad in the turns - pretty crappy ride compared to these rebuilt coilovers. So everyone - get coilovers they Rock!
Thanks again Down South for your awesome service!!

a lot of people dont recommend stacking lifts... no problems from it for me. just going to replace my lower ball joints as a precaution when the coilovers come back

Problems with bigger top plate spacers is that it makes the overall length of your shock longer, so when you bottom out in front the shock gets fully compressed before the bump stops touch. No bueno.
