To correct the steering geometry the ICON Stage 3 kit uses a Drop Pitman Arm, an Adjustable Pan-Rod Bar and adjustable Upper Control Links. To make sure the 4.5" lift provides proper highway manners ICON includes a set of high quality extended length sway bar end links. The ICON end links are machined and feature a high quality rod end that allows for additional wheel travel and sway bar movement without binding. These ICON billet end links aren't cheap to build but they don't break like some other companies tubular steel links do. Retaining the sway bar is important on a daily driver as it prevents excessive side to side sway. To complete the Stage 3 Lift ICON includes extended length bump stops, a 2.50" Rear Lift Block and U-Bolt kit, ICON Front and Rear 2.5 Reservoir Shock Absorbers and all necessary installation hardware.
ICON 214502 Benefits:
The heart of the ICON 4.5" Suspension Lift System are the ICON coil springs and the Reservoir shocks. The 4.5" Dodge Ram 2500 / 3500 suspension system is designed to offer you both incredible ride quality and daily driver performance and it's the coil springs that make this possible. ICON Coil Springs feature a Dual Rate that have a softer normal ride zone and an aggressive 2nd rate to help prevent bottoming out. That means during normal street driving the small bumps are easily absorbed by the springs "soft" rate. This allows the ICON 4.5" system to provide a great highway ride. When you take the truck offroad the 2nd rate will engage and firm up the suspension as the bumps get bigger. By having a firm 2nd rate the ICON spring helps to prevent frequent bottoming out that plagues these trucks. ICON covers their coil springs using a dual stage powder coat process that helps prevent corrosion and each spring is shot peened and preset to help reduce sagging. This ICON kit also includes adjustable upper control links. This allows you to correct and set the proper amount of caster. Correct caster settings on a Dodge are critical and ICON knows this. Because the control links are adjustable you can dial in more or less caster to suit your driving style and needs. A performance suspension system must be controlled by a quality shock absorber. The Stage 3 # 241502 kit includes a set of ICON 2.5 Reservoir Series Shocks. The ICON 2.5 Reservoir shocks provide a very noticeable increase in off-road performance and still manage to deliver an incredible ride quality on the street. ICON builds and valves their Shocks in-house and each is specifically desgined for the vehicle application. These are not "1 size fits all" shock absorbers. These are purpose built for use on a lifted Solid Axle Ram 2500 or 3500 4x4! The ride quality improvement provided by the ICON 2.5" Reservoir Shocks over the stock Dodge shocks is proof that the ICON R&D investment paid off.
