While ICON's 2.5 Series coilovers are an excellent choice for drivers looking for a great all-around performance upgrade, there are a select few Land Cruiser owners seeking to drive their vehicles in a manner and in terrain that beckons for more. The ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2008-UP Land Cruiser 3.0 Series Coilover Kit was designed to take the off-road capability of the truck to new levels by increasing wheel travel and significantly improving the damping ability of the front shocks.
Compared to the 2.5" diameter coilovers the 3.0 Series shocks see a piston surface area increase of 50% in the ride zone, and 100% in the "Bump Zone". This translates into increased stability and vehicle control at the extremes of off-road use, with benefits also making themselves apparent in on-road driving conditions. The multi-stage hydraulic Bump Zone featured in these 3.0 Series shocks exponentially increases bottom-out resistance as the shock travels through the last 40% of travel, keeping vehicle dynamics in check during those hard hits or unexpected obstacles.
These 3.0 Series coilovers were designed as an OEM shock replacement, making install a simple and straightforward bolt-on affair. Built in ride height adjustability yields 2.25-3.5" of front lift height allowing for the fitment of larger, more aggressive wheel and tire combinations. First class ICON manufacturing processes and quality components such as Eibach coil springs and FK Rod End bearings are used to ensure these shocks function to their maximum potential without issue.
