With the upper arm in, we slid the new coilover into place, securing it to the coil bucket with the new provided hardware. Make sure the reservoir is pointing towards the front of the vehicle. With the top secure, install the lower shock mount to the lower control arm. The lower shock mount uses one long and one short spacer. Make sure the long spacer is towards the front of the vehicle. This will push the shock further to the rear of the control arm to ensure adequate sway-bar clearance. With the spacers in place, we reinstalled the factory shock bolt. With the new coilover in place, you can reattach the tie rod to the spindle. Out of the box, Icon ships the kit ready to lift the vehicle two inches, although can you dial in up to 3.5 inches of lift if you install the Icon billet upper control arms.
