Pure Performance 6" lift ride comparisons ?

Does anyone here on the forum have a Pure Performance lift on your truck ?
Looking for advice recommendations or opinions about their suspension line.

I currently have I-Con 7" progressive coils along with Fabtech radius arms. The ride is good but not perfect and the Pure Performance line may be a step up from what I have now.

Thought I would start a new thread for their lifts to get some opinions on their suspension lift kits and accessories.

I have some questions:

(1) Myself I would like to stay around 7"of lift, being they offer a 6" coil is there a spring rubber or spacer for the front coils that will give another 1" of lift ?

(2) The angle of their adjustable track bar will it match the the drag link angle for a 7" lift factoring in my drop down bracket that is now at 7" ?

Any input is appreciated on their product line.
Thanks, Mark ......

In some other thread Pure posted a height and someone posted the same from an Icon here recently and it was pretty dang close. I think your height would be fine, but if you had to PMF, Icon and some other places offer a 1'' spacer that will mount under the coil.

As far as the ride quality, I would doubt that the pure is going to be better than the Icon. They're both progressive rated and both companies have a great rep for ride quality. I would suggest you take a look at your shocks or that radius arm you've got.

A nice Icon shock would be my first try, given that they've valved their shock for that coil. I had the same desires with my 08 with a 7'' icon coil and ended up with Icon's bypass shock, and it made a HUGE difference.

I think you would be wasting your time changing out springs. You already have a quality spring, now you just need to complement it with a good shock.

Are these Icon bypass shocks adjustable ?

I have a 4" triple threat and the ride is great! They also address the rear with something other than blocks if you would like and it makes a big difference

I will look into those, I see MKM has them in stock and they are 40 minutes away.
As far as my rear spring pack that is as smooth enough for me. It's the front springs that when I hit some hard bumps it hits pretty hard. Mild road dips are fine but when it compresses very much it gets into the other spring rate I am guessing and it's harsh.
Spouse I could turn shocks down to zero and see if it is the shocks firming up. ?

Will look at the Icon shocks tho
