    Can't find an answer to this with just searching:

    I'm having a hard time finding OME bushings for a set of Dakars that I want to install today/tomorrow. Shipping times are looking like a few days or weeks --- too long.

    Can I buy Toyota OEM bushings and use these? Will they fit? ARB dealer is telling me that I need to buy OME/ARB, but I don't know.

    Yeah, I might have to try for quick Amazon shipping.

    A Toyota dealer just told me that OEM bushings come to them already installed in the springs.

    you can order oem bushings separate but it is not something that they keep in stock, will take a few days for them to receive it or for them to ship it to your house.

    Make sure you get their grease as well

    The bushings arrived a day early! This meant I could leave the city and get back up to my garage.

    Install was super easy. The bushing came with some grease. I didn't bother to change the shackle bushings.

    Dakar HD EL096R in the rear with OME Nitro Chargers 60091; OME 2886 Coils and OME Nitro Chargers 90021 up front.


    This gave me about 3"-3.5" of lift in the front and rear (flippac on truck bed). Ride seems stiff. Have driveline vibrations. Adding driveline drop kit later today, but I don't know if this will fix the issue. My previous truck with Bilstein 5100's and add-a-leaf on new stock springs gave the same lift, but no vibrations issues -- probably because I had angled shims under the leaf springs.

    Glad to hear it! Also, if you do ever decide you do want polyurethane bushings in your shackles you can order new shackles with no bushings installed for relatively cheap, about $35 CAD. Was just talking about this in another thread as well. It can save you the hassle of pressing or burning out the old bushings so that it becomes a quick swap instead. pn: 04005-65104

    As for the driveline vibes, different strokes for different folks, lots of solutions that vary in efficacy depending on the ride, just gotta see what works for you. The Dakars ride stiff, especially the 96s, but after a while with some weight on them they might soften up a bit but I doubt it. Can always remove a leaf and see how it sits and rides.

    my garage floor usually looks the same, nothing that can't be installed/fixed without a few 2x4s and some BFH :thumbsup:
