    Hey i am looking at upgrading my front suspension. I have narrowed it down to 2 choices both the exact same price. I'm either going icons extended travel coilovers or Fox 2.0 Resi's. What would u guys pick?

    well if they are both the same price then i would go with the Icon's because they are 2.5" diameter body and you'll get more shock for your money.

    What makes them better? Do they use better quality internals? Are the metals they use of higher quality? Are they more reliable? Do they perform better?

    yes, but i'm pretty sure only the 2.0's have it. but the 2.0 is obviously a smaller shock

    If your into prerunning like the Score 400 the larger shock 2.5 is probably the better choice if not the 2.0's will suffice and the adjustable feature is nice.
