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→
