    Saving up strictly for suspension lately. Doing LT in the front but and looking to keep a modest set up for now for the rear, as I dont have the money for a 4 link. Not wanting to lift too much out of it (maybe 2-3"), as much as I'd like to get travel out of the rear. Which would be the best Deaver/shock combo to pursue?

    All non-LT rear suspension setups are pretty cheap...you can get remote resis back there from Icon/King/Fox for ~$500ish...AALs are only about $70 or $80....

    It's these damn front coilovers and UCAs that are holding me back from getting a lift sooner...

    i have the deaver ten pack and 5100's

    soon putting these deaver AAL and 4crawler shims in. need longer shocks.

    was kinda leaning towards the 5125 in 9.24 length (+ adapter). though the icons look nice (have them on front). they worth the extra 200?? resis hard to mount at all?

    i did some real digging and found out the icons are 24.10 extended length.

    i never really seen a fox or king shock near this length. its always much shorter or much longer ...


    i say 9.24 5125's vs icon resis
