    What kind of Icons can replace the rear fabtech shocks on a 6in lift. 06 Toyota Tacoma SR5. I have looked everywhere and I can't find anything! All there is is 2" replacements. Will this work? Thank you!

    I feel your pain. Are you 4x4 or 4x2??

    If you are 2wd drive not that hard to take off.

    so what did you do to yours then? it looks like you've got some good flex from a couple of your pictures.
    this is my plan so far...
    front im doing icon coil overs. these can replace the fabtech or procomp 6"-7" spacers.
    back I have no idea what to do! haha
    or is this dumb and I should just take the lift off and do something else?:eek:
