    I keep getting everyone telling me that certain company's are on the low end, but yet there prices are almost if not the same as eveyother company. So my question is are Icon coilovers good? I am looking at getting the set of coilovers that are designed for a Pro Comp 6in Lift so I can get away from my spacers's, and since there is limited company's out there that offer this I need to know what you guys think of there products. Thanks fella's

    Ya Icon does make a coilover specifically for the the pro comp 6in lift thereby eliminatiing my spacers. I am just trying to figure out which company to buy from, either downsouthmotorsports or Metal tech. Down south is charging to have the shocks made for a 6in application while metal tech is not, and both companys have free shipping. So now i gotta wait till monday till I can hear anything back from the 2.

    Thanks for you help dude

    I had Icon's 2.5 coilovers and they offered the best ride and handling that I ever had in my truck. I only got rid of them because the salt they use on the roads up here destroyed the seals and I would have and did have to keep getting them rebuilt. But I think they were awesome:D

    Go with DSM, you will no be disappointed with their service.

    And Icon's are easily on of the best CO companies you can buy.

    I just dont understand why DS is charging for the lifted application when Metal tech is not. I would like to save money if possible, and I would assume both company would be reputable being that tacoma world has allowed them to be vendors here

    You should honestly send Sunny at DSM a PM asking about it and maybe he could work with you... Wouldn't hurt to try. :cool:

    I couldnt be happier with the Icons. I had DSM take a little bit of the low speed compression dampening out of the front & rear, and its about perfect.
