For those who have ICON stage suspension lift kits

Can you guys tell me which stage is the best bang for the buck and why?
So Iím ďpreparingĒ for the failure of Xreas suspension on my Ltd as they are notorious for leaking issues when they reach certain miles .

The 4runner is my daily driver and I donít plan to do extreme off roading,but Iíd love to have a reputable brand installed on my truck since Iím firm believer of you get what you pay for.
Also,would you say higher stages would be better overall in terms of reliability,ride quality and durability? I appreciate your input ahead!

You get what you pay for. If it were me, given those choices, I would probably go stage 2 and no higher. And stage 2 seems like a good upgrade for only $500 more.

Lastly .... Call them???????

If you search you'll find the answers to your questions that have been covered a bunch of times.
In the end most people do what they want despite the advice given.

You probably already know what you want and what you can afford.

I replaced my XREAS well before any failure or leakage with an ICON Stage 6. Remote reservoirs, no adjustment valve.

I also drove 8 hours to have it installed 4 states away.

Nobody here knows your budget, your needs, or your wants. So a broad question like you posed is not likely to bring you a satisfying answer.

I love my stage 6. Not sure I'd do it again, but very happy with my choice.

Thanks and have a great day!
Okki

Go with what you want in your budget. I run the stage one Icons (no resi) and they've been great. Going to send them in for a rebuild soon and hopefully get another 100k miles out of them.

You've posted an Icon lift for a solid axle vehicle. That being said. just go with a stage 2 if you aren't doing any extreme off roading. Honestly you should probably just go with an Old man emu or bilstein set up.

Thank you for your input ,Okki! I honestly donít know which stage to choose since Iím still a newbie and I have no knowledge about those suspension lift kits. King,Icon stage and Fox is what Iíve been seeing on most sites and they seem to have great reviews.

This is most likely what you want.

58647 (QTY.1) | 10-UP 4RUNNER EXT TRAVEL 2.5 SERIES IR COILOVER KIT

58451DJ (QTY.1) | 03-UP 4RUNNER TUBULAR DELTA JOINT UCA KIT

52700 (QTY.1) | 07-UP FJ/03-UP 4RUNNER REAR 2" SPRING KIT

56505 (QTY.2) | 03-UP 4 RUNNER 1-3" REAR 2.0 ALUMINUM SERIES IR SHOCK

They sell that as a stage 2 kit. But you can run any rear spring and any UCA you want if you just want to order individually. I would not mess with the remote res for your use case.

Appreciate it! So are you saying those parts in the pics I posted are kinda unnecessary for a non hard core off roader and the 4 parts you posted are all I need?

Yes, all those extra links and reservoirs are just bling unless you do some more hard core stuff (specifically at speed). The basic stuff will work just as well on trails.

Besides the shocks and springs the only really useful component to replace is the UCAs (to support a little more travel and to get a good alignment with a lift)

The rear LCAs are fine, but they do bend easy if you hit them. So those are good to replace if you offroad enough to bend them. They is no performance difference though... just strength of the link...
