FITS ALUMINUM & STEEL SUSPENSION MODELS

4 220x132 ICON 2007 UP GM 1500 Suspension SystemsICON Vehicle Dynamics’ 2007-UP GM 1500 1-3” suspension systems are designed to dramatically increase the on and off-road ride quality of Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. With wheel travel and ride quality in mind, ICON engineers researched each component of the GM platform’s suspension and addressed any areas where performance could be extracted. After this initial step, an array of products including coilovers, rear shocks, and upper control arms were developed and put to the test in varying terrain and extreme conditions. Once these products had seen many miles of on and off-road abuse without failure, they were organized into several stages that deliver unique levels of performance to the vehicle. Read More→

ICON 2005-UP Toyota Hilux Suspension Systems

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

5ea8daf9 791d 4873 b522 507a0b13fbdc 220x146 ICON 2005 UP Toyota Hilux Suspension SystemsAlthough many think the Hilux is more or less similar to a Tacoma it is, in fact, a very different vehicle. The frame is very stout, and the rear suspension is designed for quite a bit more load and service than a Tacoma. These differences prompted an approach to this international chassis that was quite different than the USDM counterpart. In standard fashion, ICON engineers took an all-encompassing approach and addressed the Hilux’s suspension as a whole rather than focusing on one particular component. The result of this is a dramatic increase in wheel travel and damping ability, translating into outstanding vehicle control and ride quality both on and off-road. Read More→
