larger lift kit?

for a 99-04
for a larger lift kit like 8 1/2" for example
is a Ikon/DR all spring be better
or is there other option for like coil over conversion?

am i wrong or did full traction make some sort of 4 link?

just curious

Re: larger lift kit?

We offer both 8" and 9" Icon systems. The differences between these is that the 8" is all spring and the 9" utilizes 6" springs with 3" spring hangers up front. This provides slightly better ride quality and less roll steer vs. the standard 8" spring configuration. We also offer a coil-over conversion by Full Traction. In addition we have done a few '05 suspension conversions on '99-
04s. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks

Or, the 8.5" setup that I currently run which is 4.5" hanger and shackle with 4" front springs.

I would love to do a One Up Offroad setup with coilovers

Re: larger lift kit?

If I was to do it over again, I would definitely look into a full-traction kit.

or even possibly new fenders such as:
bushwacker cutouts or
fiberglass pre-runner fenders
or a combination of both

Re: larger lift kit?

New axle, 05+ lift kit, and some of the stock 05+ suspension and steering parts.


Benefit of the new axle is better turning, larger brakes, better unit bearings, larger axle, etc..
