    MSRP is $446.25 each. We're still waiting for our pricing, because these don't fall under ICON's traditional discount structure. We will have that on Monday. Please send us a PM if you would like a quote. They will be available next month.

    We didn't post these to claim they were "better" than anything you might already be running. It's simply a new offering from a great company. The features and benefits are outlined in the original post.

    Prior to these, ICON didn't offer a 2.5" rear shock. They only had the 2.0, non-serviceable private label shocks. I've spoken to ICON and they are very happy with the valving in these shocks. But still, if you decide that you want to change the valving, they are fully serviceable, and rebuildable.

    @907taco....according to my last conversation with ICON, they are good for up to about 3" of lift. But I did ask for the dimensions, just to double check. Still waiting for that information.

    Thanks everyone!

    "each" or "per pair"?

    So basically, the big advantage over Icon's current offering is the larger diameter shock and that they're rebuildable. Good to know.

    $900 for a pair of rear shocks is steep though...but with them having rebuildable internals, I'm not surprised.

    X2 the fact that they're rebuildable makes up for the price.

    That's each, and that's MSRP, not your price. TW price will be less...

    When it comes down to King v Icon v Fox, you're basically deciding who's logo and paintjob you like best.

    You buy the Icons and I'll trade you my foxes! :) I'm personally thinking about having my fox bodies powder coated black or gunmetal. :)
