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→

Rugged Ridge Jeep JK Inverted Drag Link product only High Res 220x220 RUGGED RIDGE’S NEW INVERTED DRAG LINK FOR ’07 ’14 JK WRANGLERS RESTORES STEERING GEOMETRY ON LIFTED JEEPSSuwanee, Ga. (July 22, 2014) – Rugged Ridge®, a manufacturer of Jeep® off-road accessories and suspension kits, today introduced its new inverted drag link for 2007-2014 Jeep JK Wranglers. Specially designed to fix steering geometry issues that plague lifted Jeeps, the new design reduces bump steer and increases ground clearance; keeping vital steering components out of the way from rocks and other obstacles on the trail.

Jeep’s original design has the drag link mounted from the bottom of the passenger side steering knuckle, leaving the drag link especially vulnerable to trail damage. Using Rugged Ridge’s new design, owners drill out the original steering knuckle mounting hole and relocate the new inverted drag link over the top of the knuckle using a connecting sleeve, gaining precious ground clearance.

Friday, June 20th, 2014

Superlift 6” Lift Kit for 2009-2014 Ford F-150 4WD

Available with Superide, or Superide SS by Bilstein Rear Shocks

SEI40023 220x220 Two New Lift Kits from Superlift SuspensionSuperlift’s 6″ lift kit for 2009-2014 Ford F150 4WD trucks achieves front lift by installing spacers on top of the factory front strut / coil spring assemblies, eliminating time consuming strut disassembly. The factory upper control arms are retained and remain in their original location, while the factory lower control arms and axle housing are lowered, in relation to the frame. New Superlift replacement steering knuckles made of cast ductile iron, and machined in-house by Superlift, span the increased distance between the control arms without increasing track width. A billet front driveshaft spacer ensures proper driveshaft engagement and length; brake hose extensions are also supplied.
Superlift’s geometry, from steering timing and linkage angles, to driveshaft and CV axle operating angles, yields optimal component service life and exceptional drivability.

ICON 2007-UP Jeep JK 4.5″ Suspension Systems

Friday, June 20th, 2014

jeep jk suspension lift stage 1 220x220 ICON 2007 UP Jeep JK 4.5 Suspension SystemsICON Vehicle Dynamics is proud to announce the 2007 to current Jeep Wrangler JK 4.5” suspension system line up. Hours of development on the computer, on the lift, on the shock dyno, in the desert, and on the trails and slick rock of Moab have resulted in what ICON believes to be the best suspension systems on the market for the Jeep JK. While the ability to flex and the delivery of a soft ride tend to be a focus with lift kits, ICON’s 4.5” Suspension System aims to strike a perfect balance between wheel travel, articulation, ground clearance, and precise on and off-road handling characteristics. With these goals met, ICON-equipped JK’s can take on rolling desert whoops at upwards of 50 miles per hour, crawl over obstacle-riddled trails, and drive back home in comfort all in the same day.
