I wouldn't know, as I don't have any experience with either of those brands... but looking at specs, it does look like the Falcons are built better. It would fun to get a few trucks together, one stock, one with Foxes, one with Icons and one with Falcons and run them all back to back, comparing them with different drivers rotating thru the different setups over the same on and offroad terrain, towing & empty. I think that would be the best way to get a fair comparison.

Do the Foxes and Icons have easily adjustable valving like the Falcons?

Very Interesting!
I've been following this company and their products since they first announced their F150 products.
Glad to see someone with positive reviews on the product.

Thanks for the time and the write up.

We're actually down in Baja, MX for the holidays and couldn't resist taking the Ford F150 out and push it pretty hard on the sandy two-track roads in the area... the Falcons on this truck are incredible at speed, the harder you push, the better they work!

I've seen over 50 MPH on rough roads and the truck feels so well planted! I hit a couple of big bumps and saw a little air, but even on hits like that, the truck is totally composed and soaks up the bumps with no drama.

I realize it may be hard for someone to wrap their head around how much the Falcons change a truck for the better, if you have a chance to ride or drive a truck with these shocks and you're considering buying them, take it out for a drive!

Are their shocks long enough to swap out for slightly larger block in the rear to keep a little bit of rake? I never like the stance of a completely leveled truck, especially when you have some sag from a trailer.

Sorry for the late response, just got back from Baja today after 2,400 miles! The truck and the Falcons were AMAZING!

Did you see that there are actually 4 different height options on the Falcons? You could set the truck up for a little higher front end, but still keep some rake by going with one of the lower options. We set up our front end to level the truck.

I would imagine the shocks are plenty long if you added another 1" of rear lift. That said and IMHO, I'd pass on the block for a replacement spring or AAL. Blocks are sketchy and add more wheelhop, in my experience.

I recieved a PM about the installation of the Falcons are realized I hadn't posted up the official Falcon Shocks install video. They put these vids out for their dealers and installers, so they know exactly what it takes to install these shocks. I watched it twice before installing mine and it helped a lot.
