You can leave the wheels on I mean it would be easier with them off but no biggie. The washer is just there to support the foam bumpstop under compression so its just sitting underneath it. You can grab it and move it up and down on the shaft so just slid it up some dabbed a little rtv under it and slid it back down and let it dry to the support cup. If you have a problem just private message me your number and Ill send you a pic or video of it.

Well holy holy crap !


Took oil the wheel off. Decided to get a good look ( now I know I didnít need too ). Looks like the spring is off the bottom coil bracket that has the bump stop in it!

So so here is my problem. This was making a sound five minutes after I left the shop. I could not drive back because I live out of town and had to work that night. I called them and like said above was that I needed to give them 1500km to break them in. The jokers must of had this intsalled wrong the whole time.

So so the shock is wearing and rubbing on the spring.

Is is this a quick fix? Why did this happen ? Maybe I need to change the tread to icon shock / spring rub question.

Holy s!!t, Iíve never seen that before I donít even know how that could have gotten like that. I would take it back and try to get the installer to replace it because I know ICONís not going to cover it under warranty if you have a problem down the road. That had to be installed wrong.

This does seem odd because the icons come complete and just bolt on. That coil over looks like it needs to go back to icon.

how much downtravel are you getting setting the preload that high? I lowered mine to maybe 1” of lift because at first I only had 1” of downtravel. Moved it to have 2.5” of downtravel and it ran much better on drop bumps.

Definitly installed wrong. Super pissed and itís really not safe. They passed on the sounds saying it was a ď break in periodĒ. Like seriously WTF hey. How was it not noticed.

With the tires off the ground I only have 1.75Ē of down travel. Not happy about that but Iím going to be upgrading to the Icon UCA delta joint setup. That should help.

Wow...I have the stage 5 kit on my truck....and when I installed mine I never heard any noise when I finished. Just a little from the UCA but some grease fixed that. Anyways...you say that this noise happened right when you left the install shop? Or after some driving? I see you truck is pretty dirty..did you have any hard hits from the stock UCA to the coil when you were off roading?

Post up a full pic of your truck so we can see.
