These 2.5" VS Series shocks feature polyurethane upper mounting bushings for the top stud along with COM-10 bearing type lower mounts for direct OE fitment. Application specific heavy duty reservoir mounts. Nitrogen charged mono-tube design with remote reservoir. Radial Flow Technology. Dynamic Heat Transfer System.
ICON Vehicle Dynamics Bump Zone for an additional 20% compression and rebound valving In the last two inches of travel. Premium grade shock oil for high performance in extreme temperatures. Two piece piston design for unsurpassed performance and ride quality on- and off-road. 7/8 polished nitro steel shaft does not flake and pit as easy as the industry standard chrome shafts.
ICON Vehicle Specific (V.S.) 2.5 Series shocks are designed and built to give your vehicle outstanding performance off-road and a smooth ride on the street. These shocks are configured specifically for each application in both length and damping tune. Like all ICON shock absorbers, V.S. 2.5 Series shocks are 100% rebuildable and 100% revalveable. For piggyback and specific remote reservoir applications; ICON’s unique use of a 6061 billet aluminum manifold a few inches below the top cap of the shock creates an internal “Bump Zone” that when used creates an additional 20% of damping force. This additional force helps prevent harsh bottom outs and controls the suspension when compressing at high velocity. If you are looking for a more user defined tune, consider looking into the Compression Damping Control Valve (CDCV) or the OMEGA Series bypass shocks.
We carry these in a couple different lengths. Icon says their standard size is good for 0-1.5" of lift and measures 14.22" collapsed x 24.35" extended. We also carry a custom built extended version of these that is good for 2.5"-3.5" lift and measures 15.9" collapsed x 26.8" extended. Please note that Icon's lifetime warranty doesn't apply to their custom built shocks.

The ICON CDC Valve is an externally adjustable valve that restricts oil flow into the reservoir creating 10 levels of compression damping force ranges. Controlling the amount of oil flow externally allows optimizing of ride quality for varying terrains. With the addition of an ICON CDC Valve a different tune is required on the working piston to get the ride quality range of adjustment to softer than standard at the “S” setting and much firmer than standard at the “H” setting. The ICON CDC Valve piston is custom tuned per application with different valve stacks because not all shocks or applications are equal. Adding on the CDC Valve is not a one size fits all if you want optimum performance.
The CDCV external knob allows for 10 levels of adjustment. Each detent from S-H is a noticeable difference in ride. When engineering this feature into each shock application, the main shock piston is re-calibrated such that setting “4” is equivalent to the non CDCV version. This allows for both a softer and firmer ride than the same application without this option. The ICON CDC Valve brings a new thinking to the table with an upgrade option that offers true ride quality diversity.
