ICON 2007-UP GM 1500 Suspension Systems

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

FITS ALUMINUM & STEEL SUSPENSION MODELS

4ICON 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→

Two New Lift Kits from Superlift Suspension

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

SEI40023Superlift’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.

jeep-jk-suspension-lift-stage-1ICON 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.

MT_DodgeHD6inKAnaheim, Calif. — With the prices of 4×4 trucks skyrocketing over the past few years, the traditional truck owner has gone back to the basics by purchasing a 2WD truck to get the job done.

MaxTrac Suspension offers a lower-cost alternative for 2WD owners to achieve the same look as 4x4s without breaking the bank. The company’s newest lift system for 2003-2008 Dodge Ram 2WD HD trucks affordably increases ground clearance. Read More→
