Icon leveling kit questions

Would it be possible to run a 2.5" icon kit along with the 1" tei spacers for a total of 3.5" or is this a bad idea? This would be on an 08 4x4 crew cab.

Yes you can, you must get a adj track bar to recenter the axle after the lift. We are a Icon dealer if you need additional info-prices please PM me with your info and zip.

Thanks, Cary

Yes you can do that combo, but why not just get the 4.5" kit?

and if so why not go with the 4.5 but i think 3.5 would look real good if you dont need drop brackets.. wonder what size rear block would work im thinkin 4.5

No drops needed just a adjustable track bar to center the axle i spoke with icon they said that is all that is needed the caster cams are enough to still keep it in the safe range. I added the same 3.5" to the rear to keep the f250 stance and you can do this kit for around $1100 with less work than the 4.5" plus save $800 another 1" ain't worth that to me!
