    I haven't noticed much of settling but they have been awesome at handling weight. The Dakar's could not keep up with the All pro expos even with the add a leaf. Wish I went with them first time around.

    Awesome, thanks. That’s what I needed to hear before making the purchase.

    One thing I would add is that depending on weight you carry the Dakar's might work for other set ups. For a while the Dakar's where doing ok but I also haul my dirt bike and that is what pushed me to change my leafs.
    My set up is on the heavier side. I have a bed rack, 2 side tool boxes mounted on a bed slide. Plus camping or dirt bike gear and a dirt bike attached to the hitch. If I didn't haul my dirt bike Id probably be ok with the Dakar's and add a leaf set up.

    I've been debating on a rock auto one for a while on my 99. Keep hearing this so I'll have to keep a watch on car-part.com for an OEM one to pull.

    Done a rock auto on a 4runner before and the oem seems to be the best option. The after market ones are to flimsy and don't line up like the OEM.
