Bringing this thread back from the dead.
So I've been comparing lift kits for the WK2 (the whole handful of them) and have wondered about this Icon Vehicle Dynamics coilover kit for a while. They still aren't selling it on their site yet (
), even though they say they were going to this week supposedly via their Facebook page. There's very little info out there for it, but I found someone on "the other site" that has it installed and explained a bit about the specs.
Apparently it's using Eibach springs from their new-ish lift for the front and the rear is using OME springs from their new-ish lift. Looks like they are supplying their brand shocks. The owner's example is saying they also got about 2.75" of lift total in the front.

The company are currently or going to be selling it for about US $2,200.
Just found this site
in Australia (
) that is already selling it, yet it's made in the US...oy. These specs say it can achieve from 1-3" of lift height.
So my question is, why would this be worth over $1,000 more than the OME kit that is basically the same thing, minus the adjustable front end height?
Someone shed some light on this for me. It seems like a huge cost inflation just for adjustable height and maybe an inch increase over other lift kit options.
(Another site, this one in the US, that has it for sale already too.
