OME Lift Question for rear axle. searched already

ive decided to get the 3 inch OME lift for my 07' double cab tacoma. was wondering about the rear leaf setup. dakar leaf pack vs the add a leaf. does the dakar lift the rear higher than the add a leaf? just wondering if spending the extra money for the dakar leaf pack is worth it or not? is the ride quality different between the two? i have searched but have not found to many good answers on this topic. any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance

Dakars will get a DC on average , 2 1/2" of lift

If you do not tow or haul , I would suggest a 3 leaf AAL instead

thanks for the response. when you suggest a 3 leaf AAL, do you mean the OME option that adds one more leaf to my stock leaf springs or is it something else?

3" refers only to the lift in front. The 1.5" lift in the rear will give you an almost level stance. If you want to retain the factory rake reconsider Daks.

With the Wheeler's progressive 3-leaf, is the 1.5" of lift achieved by leaving the stock overload leaf in? (It says they can be used with or without the overload . . . And why would you remove the overload leaves anyway?) Also, do they come with longer center pins in addition to the longer u-bolts?

I'm thinking of replacing my ToyTec add-a-leaves with the progressives for a less harsh ride.

You will get 1.5" above where it sits now if you leave your overload in. If you take the overload out, you're height gain will be <1.5". Personally, I left mine in. You can use the stock centerpins if you aren't installing axel shims
