Default [VIDEO] ICON Shock High Speed Testing San Felipe, Mexico
As you know Dylan our lead engineering, along with quite a few others running ICON suspension, were down in Mexico this past weekend at the ICON Baja Raptor Run by TreyPal Events. While they were down there some time was spent to answer a few questions that have been hidden unless you own a set if ICON shocks. BlueSTV did some great video work and this should help with a few answers to the performance level of the ICON shocks. You will see clear display of the terrain being shown at depth, vehicles with multiple levels of suspension mods from shocks only & shocks with springs with air bumps kits.

Incredible! Great footage angles and amazing how well they performed including the rears! I was surprised how well the rear stayed planted and not bucking around

The baseline we found to work well has been:

Front shocks on "S"
The SHORT tube should be 16 clicks (4 full turns)
The LONG tube should be 12 clicks (3 full turns)
The REBOUND should be 20 clicks (5 full turns)

I can tell you for this trip, the only adjustment gordon made was closing off the rebound a bit, around 4 clicks (1 full turn)... mostly because we were hitting some MONSTERS out there, and it seemed to help with his setup.

Keep in mind guys, every setup is literally going to be different. Depending on whether you have supercab/supercrew, nationals/deavers/stock springs, 200lbs/400lbs/600lbs in back, etc.
Wilson and onesickpuppy like this.

Here is the instruction that include a baseline

http://www.iconvehicledynamics.com/w...structions.pdf

Then I would def listen to what everyone says as well. They are telling you their experience they have on the terrains they deal with and that is def valid. Ride is subjective so ultimately it will be what works for you and your needs, our 3.0 shocks have a sufficient range to accommodate you in any way you desire to use your Raptor.
