Anyone running these?
They’re brand new so now too many yet. They were a popular option on the Gen 1 trucks though. Second only to Deaver, really.
Figured...wondering if anyone has first hand knowledge to compare the two...
Biggest benefit over Deaver is that they’re modular. So, down the road if you decide that you want to add a rack or anything that adds weight to your bed, you’ll be able to modify your existing springs to handle the load vs purchasing new springs.
Other than that, you still have the progressive rate for improved ride on and off-road. Not much of a difference between the two from a ride standpoint.
and they come powder coated?
Correct. I neglected to mention that. The Icon springs are powder coated.
Wish my Deavers came powder coated..... I have only had them on for like 5K miles and it isnt even winter yet and rust has already started.... Plus they squeak
Powder coat breaks off then moisture gets trapped. I have the ICON RXT and they rust just the same. Deaver doesn’t even offer PC option anymore. I recently got in a new set of the RXT and put 4 coats of AMSOIL HDMP on them before install. Then will treat them as needed.
Do these icons squeak like the deavers?
I called Icon today and was told they are NOT powder coated.
I still may pull the trigger on them and sell my recently installed powder coated Deavers +3s.
