I'll just throw this out there for you. You can get a Bilstein equivalent of the Icon kit for under $500. The Bilstein leveling kit gives you the springs and front shocks for $369.95, add rear shocks for $94.95, and some caster cams and you have the same thing. Not absolutely necessary but you may want to add an adjustable track bar since this is going to shift your axle 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

Do yourself a favor and go with the Icon kit. It rides fantastic!! Definitely worth the extra $$$!!
