    Hello,
    I originally posted this in the 2nd gen forum, but think it is more appropriate here.

    I have a 09 TRD off road and I have been looking at which coilovers to install with the intent of eventually addind an ARB bumper and winch. From what I have read the SAW's use a 650 lb spring and should be good to go when I add the extra weight, but I may have to crank it up a bit to bring it back to level.

    I was looking at the ICON site, an it said something to the effect that it may be a no go with a winch / bumper as it will make the front sag.

    Do the ICON / DR co's use a lighter weight spring? What is the spring weight? Will I be good to go with the ICON 2.5?


    One a side note, is there any difference in the C/O's that say DR on them and the newer ones which say ICON, or just the leftover stock from Donahoe?

    Thanks

    I have the ICON's right now with a baja style front bumper and will soon be changing to a plate style bumper with winch. You should be good, there are a few people on here that run this setup with no problems.

    I've seen a few people a while back complain about having to crank there CO's too much to compensate for the added weight. Gave them a rougher ride. Can you get different springs with icons? I think silverback got longer ones with his fox set up.
