The newest version of Ford's best-selling truck, the F150, has been under the knife in ICON’s R&D department. Ford made some obvious aesthetic changes with this new truck, but after further investigation the steering knuckles, upper control arms, and shock absorbers were also updated by the factory. After going over both 2WD and 4WD models in various trim levels, the ICON Engineering department quickly discovered that some changes had to be made.
ICON engineers performed a thorough analysis of the 2021 F150 in stock form with a primary goal of identifying any limiting factors and weak points in OE components. Once this process was complete, focus shifted to CAD development and real world ride tuning in an effort to address these issues while increasing wheel travel and improving overall handling. This research and development process yielded a collection of products including coilovers, rear shocks, tubular steel upper control arms, and adjustable billet aluminum upper control arms that have been organized into several staged systems that offer unique levels of performance. These suspension systems increase wheel travel by up to 20% over stock while drastically improving on and off-road ride quality.
In standard ICON fashion, a solid level of performance is established with the Stage 1 system, which includes vehicle-specific tuned 2.5 Series coilover shocks and ICON 2.0 Aluminum Series rear shocks that are both rebuildable and revalvable. As the stages increase, the ability of the vehicle to handle exceptionally well in off-road conditions is also improved with the addition of remote reservoir coilovers, piggyback reservoir 2.5 Aluminum Series rear shocks, Delta Joint upper control arms (tubular steel or billet aluminum), and CDCV (Compression Damping Control Valve) technology. ICON's 2021 F150 suspension systems offer up to 3” of lift height* allowing for the fitment of larger, more aggressive wheel and tire combinations. A 100% bolt-on design makes for a simple and straightforward installation while allowing the ability for the vehicle to be returned back to stock form if need be.
*Up to 3" of lift on 2WD models, 4WD models yield up to 2.75" of lift
