NO the dakar leaf is the same. I just installed mine a few weeks ago and i called Toytec and they told me is the same. You need the trim packer in the front driver's side shock.

I often think there is a lean in just the rear end of mine as well, but if I get straight behind the struck and squat down, the edge of the tailgate always lines up perfectly with the horizontal lines of the windows or toolbox.
Just an optical illusion in my case for some reason.
