Icon Vs Pure suspensions

I got a icon 4.5" with the tei now and looking at moving up to the icon 7" or maybe the pure 6.5" to clear my 37's. How is the ride between the two and is one better then the other.

I'll subscribe to this. I'm most likely going to purchase Pure's 4.5" triple threat kit. I was heavily debating on the Icon, but due to the fact that pure has the 4 link conversion, and comes with sway bar links and a few other items that Icon doesn't come with with pretty much the same price.... I think I'm sold on Pure. In interested to read this thread as others with experience can shed some light

IMHO the ICON has superior geometry to the Pure kit. I know that the ICON kit has a great ride to it. I run ICON springs and shocks on a PMF 4 link and am real happy with it.

Guys

Here is where the current 4.5" and up 4 Link Geometry is at. We revamped it earlier this year.



The only systems shipping with our current geometry shown on the website are our 2.5" systems. The new Geometry is much better for "Go Fast" situations and offers better control over all. We even tried our spherical joints at the frame, but went back to our PTMEG bushings and adjustable forged ends! It just felt better when you hit monster pot holes on the highway.

If you have any questions, give us or one of our dealers a call. We are hoping to have the website updated around the first of the year...

That 4 link setup looks solid! I'm glad to hear that you guys at Pure Performance put in some more R&D to make it even better. I'm gonna go with this setup. Are there ever any kind of sales offered on these kits, or do they consistently run the same price all year?

We never stop triing to make improvements. We went to progressive rate coils at the beginning of this year. It just takes us a while to get everything properly tested and into production. We improved the bushings and sleeves in the arms this year and made alot of small improvments that most customers will never see, but we felt we needed to for some of our future systems!

Awesome, I'm really excited to put this kit on my truck and put it to the test. I am anticipating that I will be able to speak very highly of it after I test it out.
