Wonder how long that shock sat in the box on a shelf before it was installed.
Quit crying and just buy another one. Geez.

Cool bro, I'll send you my paypal info and you can send me the funds to purchase me a new one!! You're so thoughtful!

I'd be pissed off as well! I bought a used lift 70,000 miles ago and no leaks yet!
They should at least send you one, then reimburse you after receiving your
defective one.
Yeah, that's what I thought too. I swear I remember reading stories on here about guys that have gotten this done...but, after speaking with one of the Icon reps, seems like that's NEVER happened before and I'm stuck with removing the shock and sending it back for the "inspection". Unbelievable and a HUGE inconvenience over something that I shouldn't have to worry about for thousands of miles and years down the road.

Go ahead and mark me down as a very unsatisfied customer of Icon.

- You modded your only daily driver that doesn't even go offroad, negating the need for such a part
- You are crying on the internet about a specialized aftermarket part failing
- The vendor offered reasonable accommodation which is still not good enough for you
- You won't mention how long the part sat on the shelf before installing
- It's everyones' fault except your own so now you're playing the paypal card.

Note, I've had to replace failed suspension components on an FJ (both at home and on the trail). Because I can afford to mod my vehicle, I didn't think twice about it, let alone b!tch about it on the internet like a queen.

I feel sorry for *any* vendor stuck with you as their customer.

1. I didn't ask for your advice. I made this post in hope that a vendor rep on here would reply back, before Icon replied back to my email. It's a ****ing rant. If you don't like rants, then don't ****ing comment. Easy as that. The parts were installed about 2 weeks after receiving them by a reputable shop.

2. I could care less about your little "note" you put. Good for you. You have claimed you have enough money to do whatever you want to your truck. I'm happy that you have all the money in the world to purchase whatever you want and that you get to go off roading so much.

Re: Yet another leaky Icon...........

If you have the stock shock stick it back on there. I suggest not going wheeling. Drive like your grandma and you will be fine while waiting.

If you don't believe me, measure it yourself. With your stock shock your gonna have ~2" less down travel so no jumping. edit: should of said axle droop

My rears lasted 24k, they are rebuilt with boots on them now to protect the shock shaft.

Goodly luck
Egg is kinda grouchy today, sorry, but he is telling it like it is!

The truth hurts sometimes.
Why put a vendor on front street, especially a vendor as respected and helpful as Icon. If you have a problem, work with them directly. If they can't meet your demands, buy elsewhere. It's a free country. Coming here to "rant" about your lack of flexibility in a matter is pointless and will draw a critical response.

I'm just grouchy because Wrangler Lady wasn't a lady.

Posts like this is how people see how vendors products hold up. If no one posted issues like this, people would not expect to see something like this if they purchase from them.

Maybe I should post threads like "what should my first mod be?" or "what size tire should I go with?"

Seems everyone loves those.

See? That's better, now you're an official Blue Roomer.

So what's your interest in trashing this guy? Do you have any business relationship with ICON? You hide behind a faceless avatar and are without any compassion for his plight? Castigating his reasons for purchase? Why don't you take your internet bullying somewhere else, where you can be a positive influence for someone else rather than ICON's resident internet bully? Or is that not really your nature?
