    I kid I kid, that sucks David. Must be disheartening. At least you have the icons in the interim.

    WTF!!!! That's bullshit!! How does that just fall off? I'd look for some clues and I'm hoping it didn't have anything to do with catching some air. I hope it's under warranty cause I'd probably send back for new ones.

    Is there any quality control check, or do they just make and ship?

    I ask because u can definitely make an argument about how you could have died because of the fail or at least trashing your truck.

    I’m sure there is some point where quality control takes place. My guess is king likely does that although hey I guess they missed one. No offense to wheelers, but I bet they just receive oem shocks and then send out when they are sold. Dsm might perform qc checks on their inventory, but likely after they tune that given shock.

    I put them on truck, but not all the bolts. Just to get past HOA. Also, my alignment is for Kings at lower height. Dont want to drop $99 for Icons, then when I swap to Kings again, drop another $99

    When you weld on the cab mount, you wanna do a bunch of little stitches, working around the mount. Don’t want to get it too hot and cook the rubber bushing.

    Did you try calling wheelers? Curious to see what they say as I think I got my coils from them since they always got plenty of stock it seemed.

    That’s good man, let’s be honest it’s times like these that warranties were generally created for...manufacturer defects.

    Exactly! Mad props to Wheelers and King for working this through. Hoping it all works out

    I like to think it was me harassing him and @Braves95 on the radio at AOAA last year until they got into double digit speeds.
