Sneek Peek Of Icon/PMF 7"

Just got my Icon/Pmf 7" It's got Icon springs and Pmf 3-link arms, 8.5" traction blocks, Bilstein 5160's. And man is this stuff massive, Trevor did an amazing job on this stuff. I had him powder coat it sliver based on the color of my truck. I think it will be a good color combo when all said and done.



Started Install


Front Almost Done

One thing to look at when you get that installed is how much the bushing distorts on that lower adjustable arm that attaches to the radius arm. When you hit the brakes hard, the axle will rotate up alot for every little bit of bushing distortion in the connection point.

If the little adjustable arm is on top, it will be the oppossite. It is hard to tell where it goes until we see it installed....

Either way, post up some pics when you are all set. Be sure to test the heavy breaking before you go crazy...

Short arm goes on the bottom. Its a heavy duty poly bushing. Although it may allow some distortion, no abnormal handling affects are felt with it. Of course, you should always familiarize yourself with any modifications and the effects they have on a the way your truck drives. All the customers that have installed these were very happy with the improved handling and ride characteristics.
