    I've done a mod or two
    It'll all put me to sleep unfortunately, so I'll go hard around the campfire and if we've been struggling on an obstacle or it's been a grind to get somewhere I might have a beer or take a swig of something at the end of that. But I won't drink anything besides soda, water, or coffee behind the wheel. The tiredness gets me way to easily.

    I fucking love pickled eggs...never had one until one day at a dive bar several years ago I sat down and saw some in a jar for sale. Told the bartender they looked fucking disgusting and she told me that she'd give me one for free knowing I would change my mind and buy them regularly after that. She was right. So delicious.

    Could be. Haven't removed driver side yet. Doing one side at a time. The leaf part#s are correct, CS046RA & CS046RB. Just those bushings look different. Toyota OEM bushings have the same part# for both and they look like the Passenger side I have.

    Just my damn luck - f-ing bushings probably incorrect which will be another delay. I can't have anything. hahaha o_O

    I'll reach out to wheelers in the morning and see what they say.

    Yeah my hard alcohol days ended long ago for the most part. I'll have a good whisky but that's about it. Had some cheap plastic bottle whisky on a winter camping trip through Mojave once a couple years ago...you don't know hangovers until you wake up in the middle of the desert at 3am in 10 degree weather with a below freezing wind chill with a headache like you can't imagine in your worst nightmare and needing to piss worse than you've ever had in your whole life. Oh and you're dying of thirst but all the water is frozen solid.

    Talk about a sobering experience

    Does it look the same on the other side of the bushing? Maybe one pic is the outside and the other is the inside. I can't remember what mine looked like before I installed them.

    Just make sure if you're going to disassemble them to add an AAL that you don't over tighten the bolts on the 3 clamps on each pack. There's a long washer on each of them that's supposed to prevent you from doing so but it's still possible to do it...trust me. Or your dakars will sound like popcorn driving down the road.

    Also, thinking about building a steel bumper now, my friend welds for a living and has access to cheap metal. Have to see what I can come up with.

    Weird, I'll have to remember to look at mine tomorrow and see if I can make out the number on them. Mine are so coated in lubricant/grease though to get them to shut up I don't if I'll be able to read it.

    OME makes the greasable shackles but mine don't squeak from the shackles, they make tons of noise from the front hangar bolts. I've heard you can get greasable bolts for that too though.

    even if its compatible, kind of calls into question the whole dakar/ARB quality thing - or is this a wheeler's offroad thing? One side has a bushing made in Japan apparently universal with Honda/Isuzu and possibly Toyota while the Passenger side has a bushing made in germany?

    right, I have the OME shackles as well. I was reading this one and that is when I noticed the difference between the front bushings. The shackle side are the Wheeler's poly bushings which I believe are made by Daystar - not sure. Almost tempted now to leave the truck up on stands for a few more days and just do it right and order these - have to confirm compatibility though with the dakars. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/where-to-grease-spring-bushings.528561/#post-16891167

    Which grease did you use for the shackles and did you grease the front hangar bolt?

    None of my Dakar's have ever come with bushings, but I bet they just changed manufacturers mid way through. No biggie

    Yep I greased both using moly grease. I probably should have been more generous with it on the front hangar.

    I really wouldn't worry about those bushings being different so long as they fit well and are made of the same material I don't see an issue.

    I didn't go with the greasable shackles in the rear but I did get the yellow ARB bushings for them.

    Interesting. When I ordered the kit from Wheeler's, they mentioned on the full kit they were subbing out the OME yellow (all - even shocks) with their poly bushings due to numerous complaints of squeaking - something about the OME yellow bushings not having enough graphite (or was it teflon) in them. Can't remember.

    Thanks all. Will update when I receive a reply tomorrow from them on the difference in bushings.
