difference between OME leaf springs cso45r and cso47
 
Hello. I've seen two different kinds of leaf springs for my 06 taco and ran Into one hell of a deal on some of the cso45r springs but can not find any info on them other than that they fit the hilux. I don't mind getting the cso47's but if the 45r's will work ill use thoes. And if they will work. Is there any difference between the two. (Pros and cons)


Thanks.

The CSO47 springs are for the 2005-13 Tacomas , never heard of the Hilux ones fitting on a Tacoma

I was thinking so. But there is no info out anywhere that I can find about the 45r's. I even e mailed arb and didn't get a reply back.

I forgot to say that the 45r's are listed as 05-09 hilux/pickup

CS043R:1/2" light load
CS043R-15: 0" light load
CS044R:1-3/4" light load
CS045R:1-3/4" heavy constant load

I found the above description at this link:
http://4x4.fatbobsgarage.com/toyota-...009-p8798.aspx
Use the "next product>" & "<previous product" to scroll through the other models.

Here's a little bit of tech info on the CS045R:

You can search the other models if you want there, too.

The tech info link shows 2 different eye diameters , front and back , 20 and 30mm

Pretty certain Tacoma's are 40 mm

I saw that; 40mm front/30mm rear. I wonder if that's a Toyota or OME thing.
I noticed the Bob's Garage site says; "Required for Installation-(2) Spring Bushing Kit, (4) U-bolt, Greasable Shackle Kit" and "Vehicle Application:
2005-2009 Toyota Hilux, 2005-2009 Toyota Pickup".
I wonder if the shackle kit is required because the 30mm bushing is a OME thing.
I emailed Bob's to see about Tacomas.

Bumping this. Did you find anymore information about using a set of Dakars other than the normally specified CSO47R?

It seems like a set of leafs designed for less constant weight might be better than taking a leaf out of the CSO47R's.

OZ-T 09-02-2013 07:47 PM

I thought it was established that the eyes don't jive

Is that something that a different shackle would fix? The fronts are the same right?

I think you're right that tacos are 40/40, but if OME has a 30mm shackle then might it work?

Why are people trying so hard to make Dakars designed for a Hilux fit on a Tacoma instead of just using the Dakars designed to fit on the Tacoma

This is my question

Options;
CS043R: 1/2" light load
CS043R-15: 0" light load
CS044R: 1-3/4" light load
CS045R: 1-3/4" heavy constant load

I would have liked 0-1/2".

Tacoma offerings are taller and stiffer.
-CS047R w/ 3rd leaf removed is 1.75" light load
-CS047R is 2.25" medium load
-CS047R w/ D29XL is 3" heavy load

Why not get the Wheelers HD leaf packs if you want minimal lift ?

OZ-T 09-07-2013 05:29 PM

Besides the difference in eye diameters , has it been established that the rest of the dimensions are the same ?

ie : eye to eye , location of centre pin ?

To get rid of the POS Toyota leafs alltogether and not spend $6-700 on custom Alcans.

Nope. Good points.

Mainmoe02 09-07-2013 09:14 PM

I don't think the wheelers leaf springs are $700. I beleive they sell the alcans which are a bit pricey. But the wheelers leaf springs come with either the 4 leafs or 5 leafs. I beleive the wheelers 4 and 5 packs are roughly $450
