In other words, Toytec sends Dakars with the correct OME bushings to run this leaf pack, and longer U-Bolts are the only other needed part?

I would probably get the 3/8'' CB Drop Kit also.

Matt
you can get new bushings from your dealership, that is if you do not want to push your bushing out of your current leaf pack. and you are correct on the U-bolts.

Thank you, but I would like to buy the Dakar's separately, I am not going to buy a full OME kit, these are just the leaf pack I want.

I see that the separate (I see priced each, obviously) listing for the Dakars says they include the bushings (all of the bushings needed?) but you do not supply the U-Bolts. Is there someone else on the site I can order the longer U-Bolts needed for Dakars or do you guys not do that?

Matt

I just received my Dakars from Toytec a few days ago. They came with all of the bushings installed. Longer centering pins and collars for the shims

What I would like to know is if guys are throwing the shims in off the hop, or waiting to see if they might need them. I am inclined to just install them right away. Anyone have insight here?

The stock Dakar pins are long , probably to accomidate the optional OME AAL

that certainly makes sense. The pins they included are 1/2 inch longer, the same measure of the pinhead and collar together.
