Another day - Another replacement ICON shock
To their credit, they sent brand new shocks with custom valves in less than a week. So that's something. Let's hope the one that I've been having trouble with is mostly due to a product flaw these correct.
I've been getting pretty good at taking these on and off so it should be a quick swap.

@HammerheadFistpunch I hope this is the last chance you give them. I though of ICON as one of the best in the biz, now I have my doubts.

@MUSASHI66 If they would have given me the runaround and required me to send them in I would have binned them and bought new shocks. But I don't feel like spending thousands on shocks right now. Since they are sending me new units, I feel like this should solve the problem.
@HammerheadFistpunch I found some normal shocks that fit my truck so I don't have to use NOS military ones, but I might try to find some better ones that would fit, perhaps adjust to fit? I'm not really an expert.

@HammerheadFistpunch Fingers and toes crossed. Though the struggle has been good Oppo...
@415s30 I have to imagine there are options out there for you.
@HammerheadFistpunch Yeah you would think but I have looked at the M37 community and I just see the Gabriel shocks, which are nicer than the old ones but I was curious. There must be an odd fitment issue.
@415s30 I imagine not a lot of people are trying if they aren't modding the crap out of them. You should get the dimensions on the gabriels and then shop around. Compressed height and freeheight should get you 90% the way there.

@HammerheadFistpunch I emailed Icon for fun and I guess they can make custom sizes. No idea the cost.
I regret to inform you that we do not offer a shock for this set up requested.
In order for create a custom 2.0 we will need the dimensions of the shock. Can you please provide the following info.
Upper Bolt Size:
Lower Bolt Size:
Thank you, have a great day!

@415s30 Thats the lady that sent me the new shocks. She's a new hire and seems pretty on the ball.

@415s30 on an M37? You could run the craziest shock on earth and it will barely make a difference. Run the Gabriels until you link it and get coil overs.
