Going to have that all done by Snoball?
Curious, what made you decide on Camburg to go with the Icon's? What kind of wheels you got?

There are not many options for dual front shock setup, and I prefered the looks and options on the camburg (jack point for example).

And yes I am hoping to get this all installed without getting frost bite before snowball.
