Going with 885 coils, top plate spacer, LR UCA's, rock shields, Dakar rear leafs.

I added the FK29 to the kit since it wasnt included, is there anything else I should order with this kit?
I see some mention of bushings for the dakars and a set of shims?
longer center pins

and like OZ said.. put the center pin collars in while your there in-case you have to put shims under the leaf pack

Im in the same boat............will have to rock the 265's for a bit until my wallet can recuperate from its beating this weekend. Prob a spring purchase for me as well. Not a huge deal as I don't feel like tackling the CB chop and trimming right now which I will prob need to do unless I find that magic combo of wheels and tires some guys seem to find.

I just ordered the full kit from ToyTec!

886x coils
Complete Dakar leaf pack
TC UCA's
Extended Brake Lines
U-Bolt Flip Kit
Sway Bar Relocate Kit


The plan is to put on 285/75/R16 Duratracs for the winter driving here. I also plan to add more armor and a winch in the spring after I rebound from this expenditure (thus the 886x coils).

I'm hoping to do the install myself with some help from some guys I work with. I can't wait to get it on my truck!

That's how I built mine up. You'll like the 886s without the armor in pavement around corners, not so much flex though. I added armor and deleted the sway. Had to install the 1/2" top plate spacer to reduce rake then. Just finally got in the LR UCAs.

I have read a lot of threads here and the OME sounds great except for one thing, the Dakar curse. I, as most people I assume, cant stand squeaking. Has any body been able to permanently rid this problem? One more thing, I know the lift settles after awhile. After it settles at around 2in, is it still recommended to get a upgraded UCA?

Thx la0d0g for the sight, from what I read there it that there really is not perma fix. I assume due to the quality of the leafs that the squeak is worth it. All I want is a stronger leaf pack, I don't care about lift, actually 2 in would be max I would want. im only replacing my factory leafs cause they are rain bowing with no weight in the bed and the factory replacements are really expensive with the tendency to break. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

It's permanent until you wear through the rubber strips , in my case that's about 6 months

I guess every 6 months isn't to bad. Thx OZ-T. Does any body know why Dakars squeak more than other leafs like say allpro?
