    So I'll be ordering a set of Icon coilovers next week.
    My question is concerning the rear...
    Will the Icon AAL work with the TSB-AAL?
    From what I've read, the Icon only replaces your OL spring, can they be used together for a higher rear lift? It doesn't seem like the TSB alone will be sufficient to give me a level height (No taco or cali lean). Looking to crank them to at least 2.5", likely 3.0"



    Yes:
    -I know toytec has an AAL that works with the TSB
    -I may end up going Dakar or Deaver but that's not my question
    No:
    -I do not want just get the 5100's and call it a day
    -I don't really know what i'm talking about

    There is TONS of good info here and I'm addicted to this site, but sometimes people tend to recommend things that don't have anything to do with the OP question. lol :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the help!

    Sounds to me like you don't know what the hell your talking about. Have you considered getting some 5100's and calling it a day?

    Or buying a 97 Land Cruiser?

    i would assume that it will work with the TSB, because like you said it just removes the overload. to be 100% sure i'd just call up Icon directly and ask them. they have great customer service and will answer all your questions.

    I think i'll do that.
    But if anyone here has already done this, or tried it let me know.

    Thanks!

    guys i dont care if this is in the wrong place.

    yesterday i had 5125's installed, replacing my 5100's. mechanic had one side done, other not. the side with the 5125's provided so much more droop it was amazing. just thought id share.

    yeah, my 5100's limit the travel of my deavers so much it's sad. i've got some Icon rear resi sitting on my floor waiting to go on.

    King 2.5 coilovers w/ resi and adjustable compression. Factory spindles w/ ALLPRO gussets. Total Chaos tower gussets. Energy Poly cab mounts and steering rack mounts. Light Racing UCA's. Glassworks fenders. DMZ bed cage. King 2.5x14 smoothbody remote resi shocks in the rear. Icon progressive add a leaf 1.5" lift. Race radio (2meter). Removed swaybar. Removed front mud flaps. Removed secondary carbon air filter. Magnaflow exhaust. Phram fresh air cabin filter. Sirius satellite radio. HID headlights high/low beam and fog lights. Remote start system. K&N replacement filter, After market stereo with 10" subwoofer, Grillcraft grill, custom fabled roof rack with 7" HID's, TRD seat covers.
    I am running the Icon three leaf add a leaf and the icon rear resi shocks. I did not re-install the overload and I have a 2.5 inch lift. It looks and rides sweet. I would venture to say there would be no problem keeping the overload but I'll have to check. I was told the overload was intended to be removed after the add a leaf is installed.
