    Just installed new components myself and the ride im getting is fine except for the rebound. driving home i was stoked til i hit some speedbumps..... Bout knocked myself out on the ceiling. It seems like the shock is riding at the end of its stroke. The kit was only supposed to give 3" of lift, ended up with 6". Go figure. any ideas??????

    I didnt know Icon made a special coilover for the 5 lugger. Also if we could get a picture of the shock collar position and the coilbucket to help you figure out your problem and what you can do.

    I will get a pic in tomorrow. The collar is set @ 1" below the top of thread, If that makes sense. The shock has a 3 bolt pattern adapter which bolts into the top of the bucket. The kit is great, just not sure about the limited rebound/stoke.
