Best Price on Dakars?

Shopping prices for parts- Wanted to see if anyone else had any leads.


TRDParts4U- 394.76 for the springs plus 54.94 for the AALs. 75 or so in shipping.

Wheelers- 400 even for springs, 58 even for the AALs. They have a poly bushing that I'm thinking about instead of trying to re-use the old runner ones. E-mailed for a shipping quote- but knowing what I spent last time- I think it will be more than TRDParts.

Toytec- 399.98 for the springs and they don't sell the other stuff.

LowRangeOffroad- 368.52 for the Dakars and 24.56 (??) for the AALs. Looks like about 111.92 for shipping.

I'll update if anyone has anything to say!!

Oh , and Bruines , DSM is selling the Dakars , it's not on their website and they refer to them as the " OME progressive 7 leaf pack " but I was just talking to a guy yesterday or the day before on here that got his from them .

It just gives you the ability to run them if you find you need them later , it doesn't have any effect on running them without . I have the collars on mine and no shims .

If you need shims later and don't put on the collars you would have to completely uninstall the leaf pack to add them .

It's a no brainer for like $10

True enuf. I'll have to snoop around for a spring shop. And get up the balls to tell the wife I'm spending another 500 on the truck suspension.

Check with Metal Tech (800) 839-0684 They were the cheapest when I bought my lift. They don't show the Dakars individually on the website, but I'm pretty sure they do. Just give them a call.

Have you checked with Cruiser Outfitters? I did not see prices for individual components but found they had the best prices when I was looking for FJ 60 springs a few months back.

I looked into the overloads for my leafpack to account for the CBI rear bumper with swingout, after talking to Jonny at Wheelers I went with a standard pack with timbren bumps it has worked out really well. I used a OME carrier bearing drop and no shims and have not had any vibration issues in this configuration.

They aren't really another overload though , they are another regular leaf , leaving the entire pack with the 2 original overloads .

I guess your right I never noticed it was extra full leaf, I always thought it was just an overload.

Another place to check pricing.

Just run a nut down the center pin to the head at the bottom and use it like a spacer.

Also, these only seem necessary if you're using axle shims.
