    Tom what valving did you end up with in the bypass and coilover?
    I'll be installing essentially the same thing up front on my buddy's FJ next month.

    The bypass is 15/10 and the C/O is still whatever Icon puts in stock. I haven't felt the need to mess with it yet for one reason. My rear suspension is the only thing that is holding me up from going faster. The front just soaks up the bumps and the rear just flys where it wants to. When ever I get the rear suspension done I'm sure i'll be messing with the front valving but for now it's actually really smooth. 2 weeks ago I was flying down the Mojave trail from Barstow to ZZYZX rd between 45-65 it's was nice and smooth the majority of the time. Didn't hold up the other LT trucks so I'm happy.

    You won't need LCA's.......just get some good coilovers and UCA's and spend your coin beefing up the rear.

    in the first video, looks like your the back of your lca is moving(shifting at the pivot point) in a direction that it shouldnt be moving, which may position your axle in an undesirable rotation/position.

    the second video is harder to view due to the darkness.

    Whats your guy's favorite/recommended sliders? Cant decide between Allpro Heavy duty and Demello. Both are around $400ish. Open to other suggestions at or below that pricing

    What is your time wait? I like the design of BAMF but 4x Innovations has the same options but a different design with a lower suggested wait time. I still went with BAMF cause I like them, cant wait!

    I could be wrong but my guess is since he's 2wd, he won't be doing much rock crawling to need ko sliders.

    the second video is after i replaced the lower control arms. the noise is still there.

    i have a feeling it's in the bearings where the shock mounts to the truck.

    That is just such a wrong statement. I'm 2WD and the kickout has saved me on several occasions. Even have a picture of it for you. 2wd just rock crawls down hill only ;)
