    Anybody know? I searched the forums last night and remember someone mentioning they paid a little under $600 from a local dealership but after 1.5 hours of searching, I cant find the thread. DSMS said they could do $635 which isnt too bad, but I wouldnt mind saving another $40 either.

    I remember seeing that too, if I remember right I think it was from a Toyota dealer. I bought mine from Outlaw offroad for $635 I think, but free shipping. I'm not too sure I would recommend these guys though. My first order were Icons with the TC ucas. They seemed good to deal with over the phone, sent me a tracking number and I got the parts as promised. But, the second time around I bought rear Icon resi shocks and an Icon 3 leaf aal. They told me the parts were on there way, but never sent a tracking number. I called in 2 times, and the guy who is suppose to know whats going on is never there. I sent 3 emails, and nothing. The leafs finally showed up, but I had to phone Icon themselves to find out that the resi shocks were back ordered. I wouldn't mind so much if someone from outlaw would have told me from the beginning. I huge lack of communication from there end. Kinda feels like they just took my money and told me to f-off. I wouldn't order from them again. Anyways, just a heads up.

And some other crap
    How long did it take for you to get your rear ICON's? I was planning on buying my stuff from Outlaw Offroad. Since they are in California, I'm hoping I can just pick all the stuff up in person from them. I had a similar experiance with Camburg and a vendor and ended up canceling my order for Camburg CO's.

    Didn't bother me that they were out of stock but the communication between Camburg and vendor was a joke, so I pulled the plug and decided Camburgs not getting my money. What pi$$ed me off is I had to throw in a Revtek to get it in the air tp mount my wheels and tires. I could have coilovers instead of teeth chattering Revtek.

    Good thing is now I will end up getting even better CO's, whether they will be Kings or ICON RR's.

    Plus since it's been so long, I now know how to install all the stuff myself and save a few hundred bucks thanks to the help from this site!

    It took about a 1 1/2 weeks to get my coilovers and uca's. There price is hard to beat.
    The first order was fine, everything as promised. But the second order I put in, really made me mad. I spent 2g with them and they can't even tell me the icon rear shocks are back ordered. I hate playing phone tag and sending email and email asking the same question. Tell me they are back ordered from the beginning and I would have been fine with that. Take my money, then ignore me, argh!!!! Anyways, good luck if you decide to order from them.

    well I just called them today, and I've heard good things about their shop service so I was gonna have them installed as well. They're pretty close to my house so I may get them installed too. I dont really have a place to work on my truck and I hate driving with an f'd up alignment as I'm paranoid that my new tires are gonna wear uneven (which they probably already are). In any case, they quoted me $825 ($900 out the door) for parts, labor, and alignment.

    ^ $900 installed for a set of UCA's? Sorry, but that's a rip off.

    well cheapest price on some UCA's is $635. Plus tax and that comes out to $692. Alignment prices (in Orange County, from the 7-9 shops I've called) are $65-$90. So I'm paying around $150 for installation. Is that really that bad. I just saw a thread last night where some guy was going to put $242 just for installation and contributors of the thread commented that that was average.

    $900 OTD with the alignment isn't that bad IMO.
