Icon13 replacement shocks

ok, so i know its prob been covered and believe me ive been searching for two days and came up with nothing... so heres the issue at hand.
i have 4" superlift on my truck and the front superlift shocks are effed. i slipped off a rock while wheeling on the weekend and the little bracket that holds the shock to the lca actually broke in half so my shock is now not attached at all and it also is totally shot. so what i am wondering if anyone knows of a shock that i can replace the superlift ones with? im currently unemployed so coilover conversion is out of the question rite now, and i dont wanna invest to much into it because im prob gonna sas if i dont do coilover conversion in the future. so can anyone help me out or am i gonna have to live with screwed up shocks for now?

Can't say for sure, but doesn't bilstein sell 5100s that will work with the superlift? Is Shane or someone running them?

I think Shane made an adapter/spacer to use them? Not too sure though...

im not to sure. i seem to recall shane running a different front shock with the superlift but i could be wrong. either way, i managed to steel some jeep parts that were kicking around and i got the shock back in and running, however it is still effed but its better than nothing for now.

still, if anyone knows of a replacement that would be sweet!

Shane made an adapter to run the shocks he has. I don't know of any direct replacement besides the Superlift shocks.
