    Found a great deal on a pair of Icon 2.0 shocks for the rear, and it bothers me to look at the box in the garage. I was wondering if ok to install on a stock 0 lift suspension as I wait on the other components I plan to add soon. Icon states 1-3 inch, but others like Eibach & Bilstein say 0-1 or 0-2. Is it ok to run these at 0 for a while? Any harm?

    To be determined
    I don’t see why not. You shouldn’t gain lift from the shock itself and as it states from 0-whatever you’ll be with in their specific range
    Enjoy- will be a better ride

    Put them on. Won’t hurt a thing.

    thanks for the feedback, had to edit my first post typo, the Icon is 1-3 " of lift, not 0. I'll definitely install this weekend, looking forward to the better ride.

    couldn't wait, the Icons are on! Took for a shake down test drive.... WOW, I know it's mostly mental but it does feel less loose and nose dive is almost gone. Can't wait to upgrade the front. I watched a bunch of utube install vids, nothing really great. The main key is to know to hold the oem shock shaft from spinning while loosening the top lock nut with locking pliers or whatever you have on hand. Get your self a offset 17MM & 19MM (ICON NUT) ratchet wrench. It saves a lot of time. Install skill level 1 -5, it's like a 1.5!

    It's likely you will never experience a problem on day yo day driving conditions but the 56505 shocks provide a good amount of additional travel. So much in fact that at full extension the coil spring can come loose, now this was tested and confirmed in an off road setting (similar to this). You do have the option of adjusting the extended length of your shock to fit a stock coil spring and rest easy knowing your shock it not too long. I can get you that part numbers and a point of contact for you nearest service center.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

    I added a Cornfed 1" spacer for the rear springs shortly after. Should be ok?
