    Hey TW,

    I recently purchased an ICON Stage 2 suspension system. I was originally leaning toward OME, but felt I got a pretty good deal on the Icon setup. Anyways, I'm curious if there is anything else I'll need before I have it installed? I did purchase some LR UCAs (I couldn't justify the additional expense of TCs).

    Any input is appreciated.

    I'm glad you brought up wheels/tires. Do I just need a wheel with 4.5/5" of BS -12mm offset?

    that would work best. yes. 4.5" bs on an 8" wide wheel is most desirable.

    Zat is a verrry nice set up yes. I plan on getting the same, with the other type of shocks though, the ones with the remote reservoir, And some dakars instead of the AAls. Good luck with the install man.

    If theyre the ext travel Icons, you'll prob be OK but a uniball would prob give you a little more travel but I think those do the job too! Nice set up, you'll be very happy with those. Just don't pre load the crap out of them and they be perfect!

    No, they're ball joints and are for primarily alignment. My camburg ball joints aren't as strong as the uniballs but the ball is re-positioned for more travel.......I wonder if the LR's are too?

    I have the Icon Kit, but i skipped the AAL, and went with the Dakars.
    Here's what Else:
    Upper control arms really are a must for proper alignment.
    Longer rear brake lines. (I did the Fronts while i was at it)
    Carrier Bearing Drop.
    And 8 hours for install!! :D It was really easy.

    A good way to get better use out of ext Icons (if thats what you ordered) is to get the camburg ball joint ucas. Allow for more travel but less price than the uniball. Now if you beat the crap out of the truck, go with the stronger uniball
