Icon-monotube vs piggy back.

With a 2.5 leveling kit would their be a noticeable difference in ride quality? Not talking about offraoding, just normal town/highway driving. I would imagine the piggy back would keep the oil cooler, but would that even be necessary on road? Thanks

I've got a 2.5 leveling kit w/ 35's and it rides just as nice, I'm fixing to put some Bilstein shocks... make it ride like a caddy!

Bilstiens are the best bang for the buck and I have never seen a nicer riding shock on theses trucks.

I sell both the Bilsteins and the Icons..both very similar, going to rez's won't gain ride quality for the street. now going to a larger bodied shock can get you a larger piston which will help some.

What will help the ride quality is adding 4 link arms..best deal on them is the Pure Performance's..PM me if I can help.
