Overview: The ICON Vehicle Dynamics S2 Modular Performance shock system redefines the offroad capability of the Toyota Tacoma by enhancing the front suspension with the addition of a secondary shock to an existing ICON coilover setup. A common misconception is that overly-complicated and expensive long-travel kits are to achieve the ultimate in offroad performance. This has been put to rest with the development of the ICON S2 system. The S2 Modular Performance shock system utilizes the factory lower control arm and maintains OE track width while providing excellent suspension damping capabilities and an exceptional build quality you would expect from any ICON Vehicle Dynamics product. All of these features come at a fraction of the cost of a long-travel setup. This bolt-on system was developed to significantly enhance the drivability of the Tacoma in extreme offroad conditions while at the same time eliminating the need for any major alteration of the frame or any other factory suspension components. The combination of a billet aluminum shock tower adapter, fabricated secondary shock hoop, and a steel skidplate with incorporated shock mount make for a straightforward and durable installed product. The modular aspect of this system allows for modifications to the vehicle to be achieved in stages, so the user can build their vehicle as desired rather than all at once. Multiple secondary shock options provides even further tuneabity of the system as a whole, as ICON 2.5” Remote Reservoir Shocks, 2.5” Remote Reservoir CDC Valve Shocks, or 2.5” Two-Tube Bypasses may be used to attain any level of performance desired. Key Features: • Does not require welding to the frame • Retains robust factory bumpstops • Does not require aftermarket lower control arms • Can be purchased in stages • Simple installation • Lifetime Warranty on fabricated and machined parts Why a Secondary Shock: • Increased damping ability for harder offroad use • Increased oil volume- push it harder before fade • Increased tuneabilty • Increased vehicle stability Tech Info: • Requires 56101 skid plate system and shocks for proper use System Components Included: • (Qty - 2) S2 Shock hoops • (Qty - 2) Billet shock tower adapters • (Qty - 2) Stainless steel braided braklines • Necessary hardware • Installation instructions Options: • 56101 - Toyota Tacoma Lower Control Arm Skid Plate System • 59706 - S2 Remote Reservoir 2.5" Secondary Shock (Pair) • 59706C - S2 Remote Reservoir 2.5" Secondary Shock W/ CDC Valve (Pair)

Lightweight Hard Anodized 6063 Aluminum Alloy Reservoirs
Lightweight hard anodized 6063 aluminum alloy reservoirs dissipate heat quickly and will not rust due to gas charging contamination.
Internally threaded Top Cap
Internally threaded top cap design threads over the shock body to enable maximum piston travel inside the shock body.
High quality fittings are mated to Aeroquip high pressure hoses which resist abrasion and kinking.
2.5" Shock cylinders are precision bored to within +/-.001, then honed after cadmium plating to remove buildup for a tight piston seal and optimum valving function.
Truncated Thread Design
Coilover shocks are machined with own truncated thread design for ultimate strength and trouble free spring preload and height adjustments.
The heat treated 6061 aluminum alloy piston has our highly developed port configurations that contribute to the unique damping performance and famous King ride quality.
Coil Adjuster Nut
Pinch bolt coil adjuster nut offers superior clamping force to retain your coil preload adjustments without crushing the threads like set screw style collars do.
Large 3/4" or 7/8" diameter shafts have a minimum tensile strength of 100,000 pounds per square inch. They are hard chromed and micro-polished to a 6 RA finish for extended seal life.
Wear bands are made from Rulon composite that offers incredible wear resistance, low deformation under load and high compressive strength. Overlapping end design enhances sealing.
High strength rod end designed for proper clearance on your application. Steel Teflon lined spherical bearings for smooth articulation and long lfie with no metal to metal contact.
Aluminum components and vehicle specific moutns are machined from aircraft quality billet. Front and rear kits all include all necessary vehicle specific mounting crackets and hardware along with detailed installation instructions.
Internal reservoir allows easy bolt-on installtion and guards against shock fade during sever use.
