Icon Upgrades the 3rd Generation 4Runner
The tight confines of the Toyota 4Runner's rear suspension make it tough to maximize suspension performance, but Icon Vehicle Dynamics has come through with a high-performance rear shock for the '96-to-'02 4Runner. Made in the USA.
•Shocks are 2.5 inches in diameter and available with or without a piggyback reservoir. They bolt on with zero other modifications required: no drilling, cutting, or welding.
•Shock valving is tuned to help eliminate body roll, and the shocks feature a "bump zone" in the last two inches of travel that increases bottoming resistance

Great News for Chevy HD Owners
Owners of '00-to-present Chevy 2500 and 3500 HD 4x4s now have a way to make their steering systems as strong as the rest of the truck. Pure Performance's Ultimate Chevy HD Steering replaces the skinny factory pieces with solid alloy steel.
•Factory ball joint tapers are used with this system so there's no need to drill out the factory tapers
•The system replaces the centerlink and the outer tie rods. Outer tie rods are made from 1.25-inch solid alloy steel and are guaranteed not to buckle and fail like the factory tie rods.
