    Ive just been doing some research on Coilover's, and I was wondering, are the Icon ext. length Coilovers alot better then Toytec's I have? Beside's the extra travel.... Im basically talking ride, on-road and off. My toytecs are good, but still a little hash on the bumps. I would like something that floats over bumps (on-road). So I dont feel them as much.

    Im just wondering, not in a rush to upgrade, bc I just did my suspension maybe a couple years back. If that.

    yeah, the Icon's would be better than the toytecs but they still will feel a bit "stiff". the Icon shocks are a race style CO and use a flutter stack which is going to do wonders for the off road performance but tend to make the street ride a bit stiff.

    flat out, yes, they are much much better than the toytecs, but your not gonna "float" over the road. for a super soft ride the OME kit is prob gonna be your best bet.

    trust me, if you go w/ the Icon's you will not be disappointed

    Thanks for the response Matt.. I def. dont want it to be stiffer. I will stick with my toytecs until they start to sag on me... :)
