Thanks

Maybe I put the wrong number. They are the "heavy duty" front springs. I've put probably 20k on them with bumper and skids, haven't sagged a bit. By the time they wear out I'll probably be ready for something different anyways :D

They are likely 882's then...they are a nice spring and as long as you are not wheeling it hard every weekend they will last quit a while. I had fairly built Tacoma with icon coilovers and I went through 3 sets of springs over the course of 100k miles or so...they would sag then break. A good friend has broke a couple on his sway aways too. Interesting note...icon warrentys theirs for life...i never payed a dime...sway away offers no warrenty at all...something to keep in mind when you are ready for something different.

Yea they are the 882's. Unfortunately I don't get to wheel extremely often so they should last for a while. First I have ever heard of people having problems with them though.

If it ends up being between icon and SA, I would definitely go with Icon. I have heard a lot of bad stuff about SA.

I sent mine back to icon 2x for a rebuild, first time they did the rebuild, added new springs, and all new heim bearings...i only payed standard rebuild fee.

Second time I got one entirely new shock because mine was in poor condition, new springs and heims...i payed for rebuild and heims....and this was after 5 years and 100k worth of miles.

My friend broke a spring on his saw after less than 4k and the shock was leaking....the rebuild fee was 3x icons and he had to buy the spring and all other parts.
