    Still don't know how you managed to destroy the lower eyelet...my bearings were noisy and clunky as hell for several months before I finally replaced them and when I took them out they just looked dirty.

    15k is pretty low for needing to replace the bearings, I bet they just need to get blasted with some dry lubricant. Just stick the straw right where the bolt goes through the bearing and spray, it'll quiet them down.

    I hit them with the hose and some dry lube tonight. I have looked at the driver side the other day, it’s fine and I have a passenger spindle on order so I’ll have eyes on the passenger side next week hopefully.

    I’ve had cracks for years all the way through on both sides in that location, like 3 layers of sheet metal but still hasn’t busted all the way through on the bottom.

    I think I’m gonna do 2in .065 square tube and gusset the shit out of it to the rest of the core support for the new cross member the body mounts sit under

    It deserves saying I replaced the core support many years ago with aftermarket shit, lotta work and not enough invested in the parts

    I’ve thought about it, my inner fenders are all messed up too, bought it with rebuilt title. I thought of caging the front from the cab forward or bending up my own inner fenders but I can’t take the downtime, daily driver.

    I have a donar truck, plan to do a complete swap, my current bed is messed up too

    So I think it did help a bit. Might need to actually need take the bolt out and clean it. Ill just hit it for a few days with lube until then and see if it goes away.

    Yeah lubing them worked for me for quite awhile...eventually when the sound keeps coming back more frequently you'll have to look into replacing the bearings but it's an easy job to DYI and Wheelers sells them

    Stock..... for now
    I just got the ToyTech lift. I went ahead and had them assemble them, it came with new bushing and all. The rear was an add a leaf..

    Overall, it was pretty easy and fast to install.

    Unless Icon is different from King, Fox and the rest, they should just use the standard COM10 spherical bearings that the rest of the performance coilovers use. @JKO1998 linked some above. Wheelers carries them too.

    When you do decide to swap them out for new ones, you might want to get some new misalignment spacers as well (the little spacers that go on either side of the bearing). I ended up just reusing my original ones but sometimes they can get damaged I guess. Mine were just dirty. Those I had to order from 4WP but they sent me the wrong ones, but luckily my old ones were still good to use.

    I'm pretty sure it was 01 - 06

    I'm positive 02 - 05 calipers are 13WL
