Correct - didn’t have upper adjustable arms- just the lower fixed control arms and adjustable track bars. How high did your actual lift turn out to be using the icon?
closer to 3.5”. After changing the front end, im closer to 2.75” now.

any update on the install of icon adjustable upper link?
installed adjustable upper link, had the shop check alignment again, and no way it was getting 6 caster. ended at 4.5.

i had a feeling because when i installed the upper arm, it was the same length as my stock without any adjustment. only thing i can adjust on the upper will bring negative caster.

i spoke to chuck at icon and they claim to have 5.2 caster.

I was reading the email from icon. One thing they mentioned about the upper adjustable arms... they are used primarily for pinion angle adjustments. Is this the missing piece to getting 6 caster?

We have the icon stage 3. Put it on ourselves then took it to get alignment. Our caster came out at 5.2

They way our guy explained it to us. With the fixed lower arms the caster is what it is. There isn't anything a shop could do to get more caster. Need to go to adjustable arms. Why you and I are seeing such different numbers is weird..

Just had shop install Stage 3 2.5" lift. Running 34.5" KO2

Castor before lift (stock)
Left 4.7
Right 5.0

Castor after stage 3
Left 4.8
Right 5.1

I also asked to get me as close to 6 as possible and he said arms are fix so you get what you get. But I am searching for closer to 6 and wondering how to get there as eventually I will go to 37's. It drives about as good as stock although I can feel every bump. a little too stiff but it's only 4 days old and it's my first real 4x4

Are icons uppers so long that they can’t be shortened enough to add caster? If that’s the case, adjustable lowers would be the fix for more caster. You could run lca drop brackets, but I drag the mounts on rocks already as is.
