    Question for you all..

    My Icons are due for a rebuild soon here. I want to re-spring the coilovers and looking at my options. I have a 2017 and the only added weight is an aluminum IFS skid, adding sliders later and that will be it. The coilovers currently have the standard Icon 650lb 13" coils and they are cranked an absurd amount. What I would like to know is what would be best for my application, 13"/14" coil, 650lb/700lb coil, Icon coil/Eibach coil/etc.

    Go to a 650lb 14" spring and you will be fine. The only difference between brands may be availability for that option and spring color. As for quality I would trust king, fox, eibach; or icon

    What he said. Springs are springs, pick a color.

    And you got a '17, why do they need to be rebuilt? Did you buy them used?

    Yeah they're used. I had them on my '08 for awhile. They have close to 80K on them.

    Gotcha. I was gonna say with normal daily driving and moderate weekend warrior use you should be good for at least 2 years or so before needing a rebuild unless they start leaking. And 1-2years with some good abuse

    You looking for pictures? Or just making a statement? If you want pics, go through my build around page 3 or 4 through 10 or so, whenever I jumped to 35's. I'm not running McNeil, but they're the allpro (trailer products) ones and I think they are similar rise and flare.
