    Shit on sale is still shit. :p

    My Foxes were cheaper than the Icon option but I would pay a bit more than Icon for Kings.

    Hahaha

    So if i give you a stage six for free would you instal it on your truck?

    I hear ya, i looked into how much the kings are with adjusters and tc uca its about close to 3700 (which is not far from where i am at with icons) from downsouthmotorsport who i just got off the phone with and did not like the rep i spoke with, he sounded like he doesnt want to sell crap. I dont understand how people act sometimes‍♂️

    Try Wheeler's Offroad or SDHQ.

    Really ypu have to take it that far, probably running stock shocks.

    I cancellex the icon and got kings, for an extra 350 of what i was paying (i think is a good deal) i did go with the delta joint uca as well.

    Fingers crossed, i have nothing against kings, the price was one main factor, but was able to narrow it down. For all shocks regardless of what issues you see, proper maintenance and responsible common sense driving plays vital roles in not having suspension failures imo. Its a truck not a dirt race car..

    I wish Bilstein would get off the fence more & come up with a variety of coilovers, Not looking to drop $2500+ per shock for a blackhawk, they have the technology & resources but lacks the desire it seems, may be geared more towards performance car market because theres a slew of billy coilovers for them...

    Oh I know, kings are well, king maybe someday for a designated trail rig, but if I could find 600lb King coils about 13"-14" in length that fit the 5100 perch I'd test drive them in a heart beat, I had 2nd gen OME 883#'s on 1st gen Tundra 5100's on my white Tacoma (matched with vintage chevy truck springs with really good results..

    Ironically, fox/King/Bilstein distributors are a rocks throw from where I live....
