Icon, Synergy or Thuren

Looking for feedback between the leveling kits. Better ride quality? Better build quality? Any feedback appreciated.

Thuren!
It was a night and day difference when I tossed a Thuren kit with fox shocks in.

If you want custom tuned foxes, get the Carli or Synergy leveling kit. If you need some shorter coil choices, Thuren has you covered there.

I can’t vouch for that setup. I can only vouch for Carli’s commuter shocks with Thuren’s 2.75” springs. Soft!

It works fine with Thuren 2” coils and Carli’s “tuned” shocks.

Thuren coils sound good. How is it towing a 5er with them with the softer spring rates?

Why would you mix parts? Either get all Carli or Thuren. Both companies set their coil rates with their shock valving. I mean you can mix them, but not necessary.

The only reason I did was because at the time Thuren didn’t have an affordable Fox option, Carli’s was cheaper.

It appears now that Thuren has a mid range Fox option.

The only companies that are offering custom tuned Fox 2.0 IFPs out of the companies mentioned in this thread are Carli and Synergy.

Thuren is who we recommend. They have the best bang for your buck set up as well. Carli is a fantastic option but a little more on the pricey side. It's a tough decision in the end but whichever way you choose you will be more then happy.
