    So I got my Icon rear leaf spring kit today, but they didn't come with the additional leaf. Anyone else have this same issue?

    Of all the posts I’ve seen this is first I’ve heard it mentioned. Let us know what Vender says. Was it drop shipped right from Icon?

    I’m waiting to here back from SVC about a bump stop kit. He is out of the office until Monday, but when I spoke to them on the phone they recommended I jump up to the 2.5 bump. Trying to figure out if I should do Fox or King.

    I installed my Eibach springs last week and idk man, it did not raise the front as much as I thought it would. Most people on here saying it was a little nose-high with Eibach coils but mine didn't even get level. It was still about 1/4" higher in the rear and now with Icon leaf pack installed it's right back to the factory rake. Using Option 1 (as shipped) for the Icon leafs. Was actually shooting to get the front about 1/4" higher than the rear for the type of driving I do offroad.

    Ive been wanting to do this but I'm a little nervous about the ride quality. How's the ride on a 19 after installing?

    Ride is not bad. It didn't change much. I think it's a little stiffer at cruising ride height, so I do notice a little bit more of the small chop like gravel or uneven/broken pavement. Bigger stuff like large potholes I think it actually feels better than stock. I guess it's the progressive nature of the stock spring vs the linear Eibach. Eibach is just stiff all the time vs soft then stiff for the stock.

    Man, that’s disappointing!! Hope the eibachs provide enough for the 37’s. If not I’ll be getting the geiser’s

    Any before or after measurements? I’ve read 2-2.5inches in the front is what to expect. How long have you had your Icons on the rear?

    RPG makes their bump kit to utilize the Fox 2.0 IFP bumpstops. They just don't advertise it if that's what you are leaning towards. And you know we have that awesome group buy going, right?

    I have spoken with the guys who run TOM in Baja and they all prefer the IFP over the regular 2.5s. They tend to be quieter and smoother. You really don't notice a huge gap in performance between 2.0 and 2.5.
