I have a 8" Icon all spring lift with the Icon Signature series shocks. These shocks are stiff as a board. When i put the lift on about 1.5 yrs ago it took 2 of us the compress them to get them mounted. The truck honestly rides like crap. What shock would provide a good ride. I was thinkin about the Bilstein 7100's? Thanks

I sell both Icon and Bilstein..IMO I don't think its the shocks as Icons are usually softer than I personaly like. 8" springs don't ride soft even Icons.. Best riding 8" kit is using 4.5" hangers with Icon's 4" front springs and rear 5" on blocks.

The modle of the Bilsteins doesn't matter its the valving. If you want to get Bilsteins I can get you softly valved ones but its not going to make a huge difference.

Icon had some issues with shocks and they blow a internal seal which causes the shock to lock up. I have seen this a few time in the past. I would contact Icon about a warranty as the shocks have a lifetime warranty on them.
