2022 Toyota Tundra Stage 1 Suspension System Featuring 2.5 EXP Coilover

Icon Vehicle Dynamics has recently announced Stage 1 of their complete suspension systems for the popular 2022 Toyota Tundra (of which 30,000 have been bought in the U.S. so far this year). Stage 1 represents the entry-level performance suspension system, providing improved on- and off-road performance and front-end lift and leveling for a proper stance and fitment of up to 35-inch tires. This system features the innovative new 2.5 EXP Series coilover shocks and sway bar drop kit for the front of the truck, along with the proven 2.0 nitrogen charged monotube shock with an internal reservoir for the rear.

The EXP’s front shock absorbers combine the performance of a fully rebuildable 2.5-inch diameter premium shock absorber with the convenience and cost benefits of reusing the Tundra’s factory coil spring and other components. EXP bridges the gap between spacer lifts and threaded bodied coilovers, providing suspension lift, custom-tuned performance, and maximum travel, all in an economical package.

Based on Icon’s proven 2.5-inch diameter Aluminum Series shock absorber, the series features a one-piece impact-extruded aluminum shock body. Hard anodizing provides a great-looking, consistent finish with superior resistance to abrasion and corrosion. The massive 7/8-inch diameter shaft is induction hardened and chrome plated. EXP shocks use the factory shaft-up orientation, with the shaft ends machined to reuse the Tundra’s O.E. upper shock and spring mounts.

The 6061-billet aluminum coil spring seat is CNC machined to fit the molded heavy-duty urethane coil spring seat that is specifically designed to fit the Tundra’s O.E. coil springs. A series of snap-ring grooves machined into the shock body provide an easily-selectable front-end ride height adjustment from 0 to 3 inches of lift over stock.

EXP Series shocks utilize a one-piece digressive piston design and are custom-tuned for the Tundra in conjunction with their stock front coil springs to maximize damping performance and offer unsurpassed ride quality, on- and off-road. The increased piston size and shock oil volume provided by the 2.5-inch diameter aluminum body also allow superior heat dissipation compared to the smaller, steel-bodied O.E. shocks, resulting in longer-lasting shock performance over prolonged use at higher speeds and through rougher terrain. For those who would like to tune their suspension further, EXP shocks are fully revalveable (and rebuildable) by any qualified shock technician, with parts available from Icon.

Vehicle Specific (V.S.) 2.0 Aluminum Series shock absorbers are the ultimate in cost-effective upgrades, specifically tailored by Icon engineers for your application. The V.S. shocks are a high-quality upgrade for the everyday street driver and weekend warrior looking for improved on- and off-road performance. Like all Icon shock absorbers, V.S. 2.0 Aluminum Series shocks are 100 percent rebuildable and 100 percent revalveable. V.S. 2.0 Aluminum Series shock absorbers boast the following features:

  • Nitrogen-charged monotube design with internal reservoir
  • One-piece linear/digressive piston design with vehicle specific valving for unsurpassed performance and ride quality on- and off-road
  • 5/8-inch chrome-plated hardened steel shaft resists corrosion and pits
  • 6061 aluminum rod end, top cap, and internals ensure strength and durability
  • Polyurethane bushings, zinc-plated sleeves, and forged steel mounting stems for O.E. factory type fitment
  • 6063 anodized aluminum body and reservoir tubing for superb heat dissipation, excellent corrosion resistance, and high-tech appearance
  • Nitrile rubber top-out bumper for noise-free operation
  • Fully rebuildable and retunable
  • Premium grade 5WT shock oil for consistent suspension damping along with a wide temperature range
